500ft Stranded Copper 14/2 White Speaker Cable, CM Rated
Speaker Cable, White, Pure Copper, CM / In-wall rated, 14/2 (14 AWG 2 Conductor), 105 Strand / 0.16mm, Pullbox, 500 foot
This white 14 AWG (American Wire Gauge) 2 conductor Speaker cable is CM rated for in-wall use, though it need not be used strictly in-wall. It comes in a 500 foot pull box and is ideal for wiring the speakers in your home theater or house to your receiver. Each conductor (wire) is composed of 105 0.16 mm strands made from pure copper which provides the optimal conductivity/low resistance to drive high quality audio to your speakers.
Our speaker wire is made from pure copper. Some companies use the marketing term oxygen free copper which really means there is no iron oxide in the wire. When oxides of iron are in the copper, the conductivity of the wire reduces due to the higher resistance of the iron oxide. So it is in your best interest to install speaker wire made with pure copper like ours are. Another misnomer is that copper clad aluminum is the same quality as pure copper; this is false. The resistance (Ohms) between the two differ and as resistance in the cable increases the power delivered to the speaker is reduced. The sound will be lower and can lose some of its quality. If copper's conductivity, due to resistance, is rated at 100% then aluminum's conductivity would be rated at 61%. In order to deliver the same quality of sound with aluminum one would need a much larger gauge.

This was exactly what I was looking for and it was the best price I could fine. Very happy with my purchase. I'm rewiring for a nice home theater system and this speaker wire will be perfect.

Expected product delivered on time. I do not have the creds to properly rate the wire being a mild hobbyist.

This is quality cable. I am in the process of building a new house and wanted to run speaker wire for outside speakers. After visiting this web site I realized I need wire rated to run through walls. The description of this wire is what convinced me to buy it, I now understand the difference between pure copper wire and copper coated wire. Thanks Cable Wholesale.

I used this 14/2 wire coupled with the matching 14/4 wire in my entire house. Also used to wire stand alone 5.1 and 7.1 systems including a Bose acoustimass 15 system. Sound is excellent throughout. Longest runs are up to 100' with no noticeable loss in sound quality. Easy to pull through. There is an internal strand which I believe is designed to supply pull strength versus adding tensile damage to the wires as they are pulled. I highly recommend this product and the 14/4 wire that matches.
