Speaker cable can make all the difference in your speaker setup, but if you aren’t an audiophile do you really need to break the bank for speaker wire? Audiophiles listen attentively for the tiniest details of sound quality. But most people put on music and then read, talk, exercise, work, or a variety of other activities. Needless to say, they aren’t listening for the tiny details of sound. If that’s the case, inexpensive, good quality speaker wire could help invest more money in better speakers or other A/V equipment.


When deciding what kind of cable to use for your speaker setup, one of the first things to consider is the cable’s AWG. The American Wire Gauge (AWG) refers to the thickness of the copper wire in the cable. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire. Most speaker wire ranges from 12 AWG to 16 AWG. The higher the number, the skinnier the cable. For most speaker setups, 16 AWG will be fine, but if you need longer lengths of cable, around 25 feet or so, it would probably be better to get thicker cable, either 14 or 12 AWG.

Marked For Easy Installation

Ideally, the cables running to paired speakers should be the same length. We’ve made that process easy for you by marking our cable at every foot, so it’s easy to measure and cut at the length you need.
