    Choice Series 14AWG Oxygen-Free Pure Bare Copper Speaker Wire, 100ft

    Get the most out of your home audio system with high quality, oxygen-free, pure bare copper speaker wire from Monoprice!

    This speaker wire features two conductors made of high purity (greater than 99.95% pure), oxygen-free bare copper. Pure Bare Copper is a superior conductor to the copper clad aluminum (CCA) conductors used in most other inexpensive speaker wire. CCA is only about 68% as conductive as pure bare copper. This additional resistance is added to the impedance of your speakers and can negatively effect the sound.

    For the wire to have no audible effect, the total wire resistance should be no more than 5% of the lowest impedance of your speakers. Even speakers rated for a nominal 8-ohms, may dip to as low as 4-ohms at some frequencies, which further reduces the total cable resistance allowed in the wire. Using Pure Bare Copper speaker wire ensures that the total load put on the amplifier remains as close as possible to the impedance curve of your speakers.

    For example, a 16AWG 2-conductor Pure Bare Copper speaker wire has a total resistance of 0.803 ohms per 100 feet (both directions must be considered). By comparison, a 16AWG 2-conductor CCA speaker wire has a total resistance of 1.181 ohms per 100 feet. Assuming 4 ohms is the lowest impedance of your speakers, a speaker wire run can be no more 0.2-ohms total. 20 feet of 16AWG Pure Bare Copper would be 0.1606 ohms, well under the 0.2-ohm limit. On the other hand, 20 feet of 16AWG CCA would be 0.2362 ohms, well OVER the 0.2-ohm limit.

    One side of the clear outer PVC jacket is marked with an easily visible blue stripe to indicate polarity.

    What is the strand count for "Choice Series 14AWG Oxygen-Free Pure Bare Copper Speaker Wire"?
    William S on Dec 20, 2017
    What is the diameter of this wire? Is it overall more compact than the Access Series CL2 rated wire of the same AWG? I already have some of the Access Series but I can't fit 3 runs of it under my baseboard (hidden behind the carpet) and am hoping this speaker wire is more compact and will work for that purpose.

    14ga Speaker Wire
    Great wire. Malleable and easy to work with.
    Well worth the money.

    PROS: Works exactly as speaker wire should.
    No surprises, no gimmicks.

    CONS: Does not solve world hunger.
    Will not drastically improve your credit score, or take inches off your waistline.

    Very heavy duty cable. I found it hard (but not impossible once I got the hang of it) to strip the ends without cutting some of the fine copper wires but thats my only quibble. Great sound and a fraction of the price of brand name cable of comparable quality (in short a classic Monoprice product!).

    Great Deal
    Bought to setup my surround sound. 20 bucks to wire my entire system is pretty darn good and I had some left over. Wire is high quality and shipping was fast. Definitely recommend for anyone needing good quality speaker wire. Great job Monoprice!!

    Excellent quality
    This cable is very flexible and perfect for use with MonoPrice's own closed screw type banana plugs (PID:2801) as the insulation fits snugly into the plugs and the copper strands are durable enough to be bent (even multiple times) according to the guide on solder-free installation of said plugs. The cable also fits snugly into all the blue (14-16 AWG) electrical connectors (spade lugs, disconnects, etc.), which is convenient as my speakers' original 22 AWG wires were all terminated using female disconnects inside the speaker casing.

    The flexible jacket does tend to stretch a bit when attempting to strip the wire, but this can be accommodated for by taking a larger bite (~1/4") in your wire strippers than you need.

    Great Speaker wire!!
    I used this wire for my home theater speakers, along with the 24ct. gold plated banana plugs.
    This wire is about as large as I would want to use the plugs with. Very large and capable speaker wire, but yet still quite flexible. nice thick insulation, and one side is marked with a dark blue line to help keep polarity correct when installing. Using this with Onkyo Home theater receiver, Martin Logan and Infinity speakers. I think this wire is a bit larger than what I used to use, and the sound if possible is even better! Highly recommended!

    cant beat it!
    the stuff is high quality stuff

    PROS: I looked around to measure the quality versus price and monoprice slams the competition, their stuff is cheap with high quality behind it. just doesn't have a name brand that you pay for!

    CONS: none

    Great Stuff!!
    This cable is every bit as good as what you would buy at the stores as the name brand Monster Cable, etc... only at a fraction of the cost!!
    Easy to work with and install as well. Can beat it!!

    Speaker wire
    Ordered the wire, delivered cross country in 5 days, just what I expected at about 1/2 the price compared to Vann's or any other internet seller I checked. Monoprice gets all my business from now on.

    PROS: Nice wire at a great geat price.

    CONS: None at all

    Works great
    I used 100 feet of this to hook up my 5.1 system using Monoprice banana plugs. It works great and i couldn't be happier.
