    14 AWG should satisfy majority of installs, November 4, 2011

    This review is from: RCA AH1650SR 50 Feet 16-Gauge Speaker Wire (Electronics)
    As stated, this is not pure copper…it is copper clad aluminum (CCA). Cost is less, but that’s because aluminum is cheaper and more resistive than copper. I work as an engineer for a power company. Lower voltage distribution power lines used to often be made from pure copper – however it is more cost effective to use aluminum or aluminum alloys… but since the resistance is greater for these wires, the wire gauge is increased – so you need thicker wires to accomplish the same thing…however this is more cost effective. Same theory applies here…it’s not pure copper, so ideally – you should use bigger wire than what your application would require if pure copper was used.

    General rule for 16 AWG wire is to keep runs at 48′ or less. Most runs aren’t that long, so 16 AWG will even satisfy most short wire installs… having said that, if you purchase the 14 AWG CCA wire – I’d imagine runs of wire up to 50′ would be acceptable.

    Some reasons to shop around include corrosion resistance found in oxygen free coppers.. The other issue is unlike my power industry example, this product isn’t necessarily cost effective if you know where to shop…pure copper from bigger bargain sites (or even 12 AWG lamp cord from a local hardware store) are priced about the same as a roll of this 14 AWG wire sells for. So….having said that, you might as well purchase a better quality product given the same cost and a choice between the two.

    good speaker cable, October 26, 2009

    I am no pro but I can say that I can not tell the difference between this speaker cable and the more expensive stuff. I’ve been doing this sort of thing for many years and always used the more expensive cables but a friend, who is in the business, told me recently that copper wire is copper wire, no matter what company you buy it from and as long as the wire is shielded properly, why pay more? Made sense to me so I tried it and guess what? He was right! I don’t have test devices to check OHM loss and all that stuff, only my ear and my ear tells me I can’t tell the difference at any volume or range. Never too old to learn something new!

    Quality true 14 guage cable, October 8, 2010
    By

    At time of purchase, was BEST price for true 14 gauge speaker wire (CAUTION: cheaper brands may be deceptive and count the wire coating with the wire as the guage size- VERY deceptive)

    PROS:
    – True 14 gauge (if you need this gauge for the length of your particular run)
    – Well marked polarity
    – No nonsense quality wire (read reviews about physics of electric current etc and realize the low oxygen, super shielded, etc are just that- hyped marketing. i.e. Wouldn’t buy Monster wire or cables unless your friends check out your brands and measure the height of your ceilings on the second floor to make sure you didn’t go cheap.)

    CONS:
    – As another reviewer noted could be marked every foot for measurement purposes (this was not important to me).
