    Access Series 14AWG CL2 Rated 2-Conductor Speaker Wire, 50ft

    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.

    Each conductor is jacketed with color-coded PVC for easy polarity identification. The entire cable assembly is jacketed in a white, CL2-rated PVC material. The CL2 rating indicates that the cable complies with fire safety and insurance requirements, making it safe for use inside the walls of residential class buildings.

    black writing on white cable
    Speaker wire seems functionally fine, but they advertise as "decor-friendly," yet every six inches of the white cable exterior have black lettering "MONOPRICE E22685 (UL)C(UL) CM OR CL2 AUDIO CABLE 14AWG*2 STRANDED XXFT"

    So it's not exactly invisible along white walls. I appreciate the info on the wire, but if you are looking for a truly "decor-friendly" wire you might want to look for another product.

    14 gauge speaker cable

    PROS: well insulated cable connects easily with in ceiling speakers.

    CONS: Not flexible enough to work with Speaker Control box. had to splice 16 gauge to connect into and out of wall controller

    OK Quality Medium - High Price
    I've purchased a couple spools of Monoprice 14/2 speaker wire for projects in the past. This most recent time, I came up short and had to finish my installation with some 14/2 speaker wire which I purchased from the Home Depot. In comparison, the Monoprice wire has much softer and less durable sheathing than the Home Depot wire. Also, although the specifications say it is a 14Ga wire, the diameter of the Monoprice 14Ga conductor was perceptibly smaller than that from Home Depot. I can't comment on quality of the "oxygen free" copper itself, but have no reason to believe that there is anything particularly wrong with it -say from an attenuation perspective. Also, the linear price per foot was about 10 cents cheaper at Home Depot.

    In the future, I will save myself the shipping costs and delays and procure locally through the Home Depot.

    Great speaker wire for a home theatre
    Nice gauge speaker wire for an in-wall installation. Purchased an Energy Take 5 Micro speaker system, and a new Denon 2112ci receiver, and needed the clean look of in-wall wires. This wire fit the bill very well - not too thick gauge for the no-so-great-quality speaker posts on the Energy speakers, and I didn't bother doing very much around the entrance of the wire into the drywall. (Although thinking about it my spouse would like to get some kind of rubber grommet or something to make it look even cleaner.)

    PROS: + Just the right gauge for a home theatre
    + Smooth casing for easy threading behind walls
    + Great price and delivery from Monoprice

    CONS: - Nothing I can think of

    Good, 14 gage stranded speaker wire suitable for installing in walls. CL2 rated means it's safe for in wall installation. Red and black wires have a thin plastic sheath, and those are inside a white larger sheath. The white sheath is a bit large for the 14 gage wires, they are a little loose inside.

    This product exceeded my expectations. I haven't ordered much from monoprice but all that I have ordered is something that you would expect to pay 10 times for any where else.

    Speaker Cable
    I had Monster Cable for my 5.1 surround sound. I moved system into a bigger room and upgraded to 7.1 sound. So I need longer wire and decided to try Monoprice instead of Monster, works just as good for a fraction of the price.

    PROS: Great price, fast delivery works great.

    CONS: it's not free :)

    Much thicker than i expected. Very thick insulation. I should have bought 4 conductor wires. I would advice you to buy 4 conductor wire if you are thinking about running the wire on the wall. Fantastic quality
