    Choice Series 16AWG 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.

    Great product, one flaw.
    Great price for a great roll of speaker wires, beats Walmart by far.
    Only problem is the color strip on one of the wires (to not mix pos with neg) is light blue and very thin, so much so that even with a flashlight it will take you 30 seconds to see it because its so thin and the color is so light that its very hard to see and you can only see it at certain angles.
    It would have be smart to make the strip black to make it the negative wire and black would make it obvious to see which wire is neg (or whatever you want it to be), so thats a big flaw IMO.
    What I did is find the wire with the strip on it and marked it with a black marker so that when I connect my speakers to the receiver I will easily identify it.
    On the picture they provide, the blue strip is thick a bright blue, but mine was very thin and very light blue, could be due to a long storage period that faded the color, I dont know.

    16AWG Enhanced Loud Oxygen-Free Copper Speaker Wire Cable - 300ft
    No issues with this wire whatsoever. Other reviews said the blue strip on the insulation was hard to see. I did not have this problem at all. You can not beat the price of this wire in a store. I compared prices at Radio Shack, Best Buy, Home Depot, Frys, and other local electronic stores before ordering from Monoprice.

    PROS: Price. Could get a large spool of wire instead of buying in 25' or 50' lengths.

    CONS: None

    Good Speaker Wire
    I used this cable for a 7 speaker setup. It was easy to run the lengths that I needed. The larger spool meant I didnt have to worry about running short. The price was good compared to similar stuff on Amazon. Just be careful when removing the insulation, as it is somewhat easy to nick or cut the copper strands. Overall good product and will use it again.

    PROS: Inexpensive, high-quality audio cable. Nice large spool for 5+ speaker setups over short to longer runs. Easy to use. Easy to hide/paint over (if needed). Another fine product from Monoprice.

    CONS: When stripping the outer insulation off, it is easy to nick the copper strands and cut a few. Take care when removing and you should be fine.

    Perfect Transaction
    Everything went flawlessly. The purchase went through secure, the spool of speaker wire came within my chosen shipping estimate, and it was brand new in perfect shape upon arrival. This isn't my first purchase from monoprice.com either. I've never had any issues with this website. It's amazingly cheap and extremely reliable!

    Worked as advertised
    I'm slightly confused how my 20 awg monster xp was thicker than this 16 but oh well, I wouldnt have been able to install them behind the baseboards if they were any thicker.

    I didnt think Id use more than 200ft, boy was I wrong. I used all 300ft and needed to use 3ft of my old cable for the center speaker, from the wallplate to the speaker.

    Overall I will recommend monoprice to everyone. I have already put in a second order from them and as long as I continue to need stuff they carry, they will get my business.

    Great speaker cable
    I have worked for companies like Circuit City, and RC Willey in setting up home theater system for a long time. I have seen all sorts of claims as to why some cables are better than other. Let's get down to business. This 16AWG wire is just as good as any you are going to pay up to 10x for. I mean that. This is good wire. What more can you say about Copper Speaker Wire?

    PROS: Adequate flexibility for fishing through walls, and floors.

    CONS: Would like a easier method for determining polarity, but the writing is on only one side of the wire pair, use that as your marker.

    A lot of cable for less!!
    Wired my rear and center surround speakers with one spool!! I was going to have to buy two 50' and two 100' spools of cable and this allowed me to save money and conserve the excess cable. And, it costed less too!!

    PROS: Wired my rear and center surround speakers with one spool!!

    CONS: None, if you need a lot of cable.
