Choice Series 14AWG Oxygen-Free Pure Bare Copper Speaker Wire, 300ft
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.
PROS: The sheathing is very thick and durable yet the cable is very manageable. You just can't beat the price either.
PROS: high quality wire..works preferct
Also, the slowest shipping was quick. If I didn't live 3,000 miles away from their distribution point, I would be buying more. UPS can get expensive.
PROS: lots of cable with clear coating blue stripe to indicate + shielding is top notch
CONS: I didn't buy enough of it
PROS: Nothing but great things to say about the product, the price, and the service.

PROS: -Excellent quality thick copper wire
-Easily discernible polarity with negative having a thick blue line
-Very malleable jacket
-Super clean sound with excellent highs, mids, and lows.
-Best bang for buck speaker wire anywhere, online or in brick and mortar stores.
CONS: -Personally the jacket could have been a bit thinner
