    Access Series 14AWG CL2 Rated 2-Conductor Speaker Wire, 250ft

    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.

    what is the outer diameter of the 14gauge wire? i am wanting to put cable pants on the wire next to the amp and speaker and need to know which size to get. my choices are 6, 8, 10, or 14 mm.
    New User U on Mar 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The outer diameter of each 14AWG wire with insulation is 2.65mm. The overall diameter with the white jacket is 7mm. I hope this helps.
    Is this cable twisted or straight?
    A shopper on Aug 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The red and black cables are not twisted together they are straight next to each other. The copper is braided copper strands. This is great speaker wire.
    Will this support 24v AC?
    A shopper on Feb 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This cables purpose would be intended for wiring speakers. We would not recommend using this cable for power.
    Is the cable that listed on Amazon Canada by Monoprice the same as this ?

    Best speaker cable around
    I would have to say, this is some of the best speaker cable I've ever worked with... at any price!

    Buy this cable. Period.

    It is very easy to work with, extremely high quality, and the numbering on each roll/bundle is fantastic. Usually, numbering like that is reserved for over-priced junk you pick up at Best Buy.

    In the future, I will only buy MonoPrice speaker cable and accessories. It's insanely low priced, and of terrific quality. Nice job MonoPrice!

    (The included photo isn't great, but it does show the nice, clean, white cable that I ran to my rear surround speakers. Worked perfectly)

    Great wire!
    I used this speaker wire to wire my surround sound into my living room. The wire is plenty flexible and I have had no problems. I can't say if it is the highest quality sound, but all of it seems to work and where I do have to see speaker wire (between a wall plate and a speaker) the white jacket looks clean and sharp.

    PROS: For the price, this can't be beat. Try getting 100' of similar cable from your local store for this price.

    CONS: Haven't found any yet.

    Very good cable
    I found this to be a great cable. Specs equal to Monster cable, but price is significantly cheaper. Cant beat Monoprices price. Pulled in a total of 350 feet for a 7.1 home theater system. Longest pull was 70 feet, part ceiling and part 1/2 conduit. Cable pulled great, very flexible and doesnt kink. Length markings every foot is a big plus. Interior strip cord will pull back into jacket after a cut, but is usually within an inch of the end.

    Speaker Wire
    I purchased my speaker wire after researching various options and found that Monoprice had great reviews, a solid product and a very attractive price. The wire arrived very quickly and I have installed it already in the cabin I am building, prior to sheet rocking. The wire is flexible enough for almost any situation and was easy to run behind the framing. Now I have music to finish the project with!

    PROS: Good product, great price and very fast shipping.

    CONS: I did not encounter any negative issues with my transaction, the shipping or the product.

    Excellent Value and quality
    This wire is very good. I like that there are more strands than some of the cheap wires found at Home Depot and the like. This wire is easy to work with!

    Best price I found
    I was very satisfied with my home theater wiring purchase. The price could not be beat and was delivered very quickly.

    Thoroughly Pleased
    Where to start - Pliable, costs half to third of competitors and the foot markings that I thought were gimmicky were real labor savers for running equal length pulls to each of the rears. I read a lot of horror stories about some of the other brands this one is great.

    PROS: Well built, foot markings, strips well

    CONS: None

    Easy to Install
    This made it very easy to install a surround system with in wall speakers.
    January 2, 2010
    Wire quality is very good, outer jacket lends itself to threading through walls and electrical boxes. Color coding is always appreciated. Excellent value for this quantity of wire.

    Monoprice Rocks
    I always look to monoprice when I need anything they might have.
    This product is the same high quality as all of their cabling products, and can't be beat for the price.

    PROS: Cost, quality, customer service
    Cable length is marked on the roll, nice option.
