GLS Audio Premium 12 Gauge 100 Feet Speaker Wire – True 12AWG Speaker Cable 100ft Clear Jacket – High Quality 100′ Spool Roll 12G 12/2 Bulk

  • True 12AWG Rated (American Wire Gauge) – 2 Conductor. Made of Aluminum coated with copper.
  • Premium Clear Thick Insulated Cable Jacket
  • High Strand Count for Flexibility & Audio Purity
  • Includes Spool for Easy Installation and Measuring
  • Connect your Speakers, A/V Receivers, and Amplifiers

GLS Audio speaker wire is manufactured with the highest grade materials in the industry. And most importantly, is rated in true AWG spec which stands for “American Wire Gauge”. The AWG rating was developed by the USA as a result of some wire manufacturers stating their wire was a certain spec when it really wasn’t. You’ll notice most imported wire and cable manufacturers will rate their wire in “G” or Gauge (not AWG). The “G” rating can be used for any wire size. For example: A 12G rated cable m

    Heavy duty speaker wire made of copper and not all that filler crap. The wire does have an indicator on one side for polarity (white line on one wire) for those complaining about it, open your eyes. Is 12 gauge overkill? Maybe, but I would rather run the wire once, and run it right. Pairs very nicely with Sewell Deadbolt Banana Plugs for a very nice fit and professional install. For my rear surround speakers I went down through the floor and under the house to come up behind the couch. Remember the further you go the more resistance you get, and the bigger gauge you are going to need.

    Wire gauge
    Thicker wires reduce resistance. The resistance of 16-gauge or heavier speaker connection cable has no detectable effect in runs of 50 feet (15 meters) or less in standard domestic loudspeaker connections for a typical 8 ohm speaker. As speaker impedance drops, lower gauge (heavier) wire is needed to prevent degradation to damping factor – a measure of the amplifier’s control over the position of the voice coil.
    Insulation thickness or type also has no audible effect as long as the insulation is of good quality and does not chemically react with the wire itself (poor-quality insulation has occasionally been found to accelerate oxidation of the copper conductor, increasing resistance over time). High-power in-car audio systems using 2-ohm speaker circuits require thicker wire than 4 to 8-ohm home audio applications.
    Most consumer applications use two conductor wire. A common rule of thumb is that the resistance of the speaker wire should not exceed 5% of the rated impedance of the system. The table below shows recommended lengths based on this guideline:
    Maximum wire lengths for two conductor copper wire

    Wire size 2 Ω load 4 Ω load 6 Ω load 8 Ω load
    22 AWG (0.326 mm2) 3 ft (0.9 m) 6 ft (1.8 m) 9 ft (2.7 m) 12 ft (3.6 m)
    20 AWG (0.518 mm2) 5 ft (1.5 m) 10 ft (3 m) 15 ft (4.5 m) 20 ft (6 m)
    18 AWG (0.823 mm2) 8 ft (2.4 m) 16 ft (4.9 m) 24 ft (7.3 m) 32 ft (9.7 m)
    16 AWG (1.31 mm2) 12 ft (3.6 m) 24 ft (7.3 m) 36 ft (11 m) 48 ft (15 m)
    14 AWG (2.08 mm2) 20 ft (6.1 m) 40 ft (12 m) 60 ft (18 m)* 80 ft (24 m)
    12 AWG (3.31 mm2) 30 ft (9.1 m) 60 ft (18 m)* 90 ft (27 m)* 120 ft (36 m)
    10 AWG (5.26 mm2) 50 ft (15 m) 100 ft (30 m)* 150 ft (46 m)* 200 ft (61 m)

    While in theory heavier wire can have longer runs, recommended household audio lengths should not exceed 50 feet (15 m)

    good quality copper with 12 gauge size cable. If you are still confused by those deceptive marketing technique by audioquest, monster cables, cardas, transparents, do some research! Don’t go out and spend $1000 on speaker cables and thinking it makes different. It does not! A good reference will be from roger Russel, a former director of mcintosh acoustic research lab @ roger-russell dot com under speaker wire. Take care your wallet my friend.

    CCA, Not 100% Copper!, June 20, 2013

    I’m not about to debate CCA versus 100% Copper wire. My disdain is simple: There is absolutely NO indication that this wire is CCA! The product description itself is very misleading! In fact, the text criticizes the mass of other wire (assume 100% copper) then fails to divulge the use of lightweight aluminum in this wire. Heck, it might not even be aluminum, but whatever the material, it is a silver-colored core with copper crust.

    Here is the item description as of June 20, 2013:

    “GLS Audio speaker wire is manufactured with the highest grade materials in the industry. And most importantly, is rated in true AWG spec which stands for “American Wire Gauge”. The AWG rating was developed by the USA as a result of some wire manufacturers stating their wire was a certain spec when it really wasn’t. You’ll notice most imported wire and cable manufacturers will rate their wire in “G” or Gauge (not AWG). The “G” rating can be used for any wire size. For example: A 12G rated cable may only be equivalent to a 18AWG cable (or worse). There are no regulations or specifications on “G” rated cables. How can you determine if a “G” rated cable is the same spec as an AWG cable? Unfortunately, you can’t unless you test the power loss per foot. Sometimes the weight may be an indicator. For example: GLS Audio 500ft 12AWG spool weighs about 25 lbs whereas most of our competitors only weigh about 15lbs. This may be a direct result of the wire gauge not being true AWG.”

    The four product photos all ‘seem’ to show copper wire, yet that is NOT what you are getting. Although the seller was otherwise fine to deal with, this is a big negative against them.

    If you are claiming the ‘finest materials in the industry’ then it damn well better be!

    Me no like, bad medicine.

    UPDATE AUGUST 10 2013
    The seller has now included a note that it is CCA. This info was missing when I purchased the item.
