Overview

Our take on the AudioQuest X2 Speaker Cable

Compared to commonplace 16-gauge wire, AudioQuest's X2 speaker cable reduces resistance over longer runs, so your high-quality components and speakers will get the cleanest, most accurate signal possible. As a general rule, the lower the gauge, the thicker the wire, and the better its capacity to pass amplified audio signal.

Compared to commonplace 16-gauge wire, AudioQuest's X2 speaker cable reduces resistance over longer runs, so your high-quality components and speakers will get the cleanest, most accurate signal possible. As a general rule, the lower the gauge, the thicker the wire, and the better its capacity to pass amplified audio signal.

AudioQuest's cable designs come from years of in-house research and careful engineering. Their X2 speaker cables use a special semi-solid concentric arrangement that keeps the bundled strands in the same position throughout the length of the cable. The signal encounters less potentially damaging interactions and shifts in magnetic environment, resulting in sound that's clearer and more dynamic. The conductors are made of long-grain copper to ensure efficient signal transfer with minimal loss.

Product Highlights:

  • flexible 14-gauge speaker cable
  • long-grain copper conductors
  • semi-solid concentric packing to minimize signal interference
  • PVC cable jacket
  • stripe on cable helps you make the right connection
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

What's in the Box:

  • 30' length of 14-gauge speaker wire (unterminated) in dark gray PVC jacket

Solid quality and works well. Happy with results

The X2 cable

average joe from USA on 7/11/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Super great cable. Very balanced and smooth sounding. You'll definitely notice a little difference from stock cables. The best speaker cable pool you can get for your money. Strips easily without a mess or destruction of cable. Not as many copper stands as basic cable pools. A little more solid with thicker strands. I used the Crutchfield speaker connectors as well, to finish cable. I would highly recommend for "snake oil" critics or music listeners who want great sound, long lengths, and high quality for a low price.

Pros: ideal for stereo setups that need a lot of wires. Great for basic music listening.

Cons:

Crutchfield customer from Leavenworth, KS on 1/13/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is excellent speaker cable. It made a noticeable difference in clarity compared to the old budget wire I had been using. It is not cheap, but was well worth it.

Pros:

Cons:

Easy to strip this wire

Josette from Ninety Six, SC on 12/24/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the best speaker cable I've ever used. I'm not sure if it provides any better sound or signal than other high-quality cable, but it's so much easier to strip the shielding off the wire! What I hate about speaker cable is cutting the plastic shield without cutting the underlying wires. I was able to cut this with a small knife and the shield is so soft and pliable that it was easy top cut it without harming the wires. Bravo!

Pros: Easy to strip, to connect terminals or for bare-wire install Great sound

Cons:

Crutchfield customer from Conway, NH on 10/31/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good product. Easy to work with and terminate.

Pros: This wire seems to have less memory than others I have used making it easier to route.

Cons:

Great wire!

Donald from Tonopah, NV on 9/25/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is great thick wire. I use this and AudioQuest's Rocket 33 exclusively in my system. I use the Rocket 33 for short runs and the X2 for longer runs. I've noticed my amp does seem to run as hot with 14 Gauge wire as it did with 16 Gauge, probably due to less resistance.

Pros: Thick sturdy cable.

Cons: As with everything Audioquest makes and sells, price, but you get what you pay for. The cheap stuff just doesn't sound as good.

Great product, surprising difference

Jon from Osage Beach, MO on 9/4/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had just purchased a new receiver and speakers from Crutchfield. When they both arrived I realized I didn't have any speaker wire. I didn't want to wait to order some so I went to my local home improvement store and bought some of their wire. After realizing I was going to buy some new tower speakers I decided to not short change them and buy some quality wire. I really didn't think it would make much difference but I wanted to put it to the test. After listening to my speakers with the new wire all I can say is WOW, I couldn't believe the difference it made! No distortion, no background noise and clean, clean music. The depth of the sound was unreal! If you are on the fence wether to invest this much money on speaker wire, don't think twice about it. Order this wire, it really makes a difference you can hear!! And with Crutchfield's guarantee you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Pros: Quality product that makes a real world difference. Piece of mind.

Cons: Wish I wouldn't have wasted $30 at the home improvement store

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very nice speaker wire and great price too. For a while I was using monster speaker wire it was pretty good this wire took my sound system to a whole new level. Nuances shine better and I like the fact that it's 14 ga.wire the jacket on it is very nice. Its noise free and just overall a great product I recommend this highly for anyone that wants good wire and not pay a fortune.

John from Maryland on 10/28/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Audio Quest X2 speaker cable arrived on time and was exactly what I expected. However, I was a little surprised at how neatly the speaker cable was packaged by Audio Quest (in a very attractive box). I especially liked the clear (easy to see) red marking indicating polarity.

Pros: Speaker cable has very clear polarity (red) marking.

Cons: None

Cost??

cspann from Maryland on 10/6/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pros: High quality cable, well identified pos neg wires

Cons: cost.. this was the big factor.... I latched onto several alternatives at much lower cost with no impact to audio

Cons: nada nada lemonada

yes

yes sir from clarksville tn on 9/30/2014

Nice basic good cable. Had some older type 4 cable i was using as main cables . I bought this stuff to use to upgrade some internal cable in some revel f12s . Actually made a difference so i use this as main until some kimber cable arrive . No difference when compared to type 4 but the 4 is going on 9 years i believe, cant remember but the ends could use some cleaning so it was a unfair comparison. Highly recommend for budget minded speaker runs , will not be disappointed.

Pros: Good quality for the money

Cons: None at this price

Worth the price

George from Lynchburg, VA on 9/12/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This wire was easy to install and provided immediate improvement in sound. There's nothing flimsy about it--and just in case I want to use it with my other system, there was wire to spare.

Pros: Good, clean sound.

Cons: None.

Crutchfield customer from Rocklin, Ca on 8/2/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Made my system sound great.

Pros: High Quality product

Cons: A little thick because it's 14ga. buut worth it if your running over 30 feet.

It Works

Steve_B from Prescott, AZ on 6/25/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I found this wire to be fairly easy to thread into binding posts in PSB Imagine T speakers and Marantz PM8005 amp. The white stripe is useful in getting the polarity right. In my setup, with the speakers a little more than four feet from the amp, I found the length of wire to be just adequate to do both.

Pros: Easy to use.

Cons:

AWESOME WIRE

Crutchfield customer from SO CAL on 4/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

THIS IS AN AWESOME WIRE. MAJOR DIFFERENCE FROM STANDARD WIRE UPGRADE. SOLID DESIGN AS STATED. HUGE DIFFERENCE IN SOUND QUALITY (CLEARER AND LOUDER VOCALS AND BACKGROUND).

Pros: OUTSTANDING DESIGN

Cons:

Was definitely an upgrade...

jmg from Charlotte, NC on 3/29/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It is true your system will only sound as good as its weakest link. Mine was the speaker wire. I was using some wire I had found around the house for my "listening room". A small room where I have a 9 yr old Arcam amp with a 30 yr old Dual 1264, tied to PSB Alpha 1 bookshelf speakers. The difference with this new speaker wire was astounding. The sound was much richer, fuller, and lifelike. The sound improvement was definitely noticeable. Highly recommend if you are using a basic, thin (high # gauge) speaker wire.

Pros: Great sound!!!

Cons: None.

Apparently All Speaker Cable is Not Created Equal

UR2 from North Texas on 7/29/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Was using Monster's XP Compact Precision speaker cable between my Yamaha RX-A830 and Klipsch speakers. The sound quality was good, but felt that it should have been better considering the quality of my receiver and speakers. Decided to take a chance on AudioQuest's X2 speaker cable, since I had earned some Crutchfield bonus dollars that would take some of the sting out of the high purchase price. Well, the soundstage and sonic quality of music improved quite markedly through the AudioQuest X2 speaker cables. There seemed to be less distortion and more instrumentation/note separation in the music with both classical and rock. To be fair, I also changed out my Sewell Pro-Maestro banana plugs with AudioQuest SureGrip-BFA gold plated banana plugs; so it could have been a combination of the speaker cable and banana plugs.

Pros: Crystal Clear Sonic Reproduction and Note Separation

Cons: Pricey

Cons:

Top Quality Cable

MikeW from Troy, Mi on 6/13/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a high gauge quality cable. It has a thick jacket and is somewhat inflexible. Note that when you run it, the arrows on the cable should be in the direction of the speakers. Due to the thicker gauge and jacket, it will take up more room if running through furniture with pre cut openings.

Pros: High Quality

Cons: Thick cable.

Great Cable

Ken from Maplewood NJ on 5/3/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great cable, using with front Polk speakers in HT, should have started with this vs standard XP, very significant improvement in all respects; detail, bass, etc, in my HT very nearly the equal of AudioQuest Type 4 - which I have used to biwire the center channel speaker, Also the X2 is much heaver than the G2 that I have used - in a different application,

Pros: sounds great,

Cons: none

14 is bigger than 16?

Emmanuel from Lubbock, TX on 4/21/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Did you know that a 14 guage wire is bigger than a 16 gauge wiring? Niether did I. And did you know that the thickness of your wiring could affect the signal your speaker receives? All these little infos are the kind of things the average buyer looking for a speaker wiring easily overlooks. But don't worry I got a solution for those of you that are technically challenged like myself; just buy a quality wiring like the audioquest X2. I didn't know where to begin when I started looking for a wire but after talking to a Crutchfield Advisor named Josh about an infinity speakers he suggested I asked him to suggest a good/solid speaker wiriing that won't break the bank he suggested the X2 and boy was he right on both counts. The sound coming out of my Infinity P363 has as much to do with the speaker drivers as it does with the wiring. Sadly, I failed to give Josh the advisor his due credit when I placed my order from Crutchfield. Please help me rectify that guys.

Pros: Quality and value Deliver stron clean signals

Cons: Uh...can't think of any

AudioQuest x2 speaker cable

John from Riverdale, NY on 1/17/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent heavy duty cable that will last. Coupled with Infinity Primus P363 speakers the sound was excellent.

Pros: Heavy quality covering and red marking on one lead makes life easier on making the proper connections to receiver and speakers. Also markings to show the proper direction for running cable from receiver [never realized there was a difference] and footage.

Cons: Little pricey.

TOTALLY AWESOME CALBES

Samuel from Poulsbo, WA on 8/27/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I received the white X2 speaker cable today and was VERY IMPRESSED by the QUALITY and size of the cable. I own a pair of Klipsch Icon VF-36 floor standing speakers and I am able to Bi-wire them and that is what I did. I am playing the cd player to burn in the cables. I have noticed a quicker and more detailed sound even at very low volume, this is quite a feat as I was in the artillery when I served in the military and I lost a lot of high end in my hearing , so for me to hear detail at low level speak volumes for the ability of these cables to deliver sound clearly and fully. I will be buying more AudioQuest products in the very near future.

Pros: DETAIL, SPEED,SMOOTHNESS, OPENNESS

Cons: NONE

high quality cable worth the money

william t. from paducah ky. on 8/25/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

this cable improved the quality of my system i have a nad integrated amp and polk speakers,and the X2 cables cut out distortion improved definition so i can hear everything better,and i had a good pair of speaker cables before these.the red marking makes it much easier to connect the X2 cables than any cable ive used before,i am pleased and recommend these cables,and the price is really good too.the crutchfield advisor recommended the monster dual banana plugs and i am glad he did,they are less expensive than some connectors and better in my opinion.

Pros: great quality at a reasonable price making listening more pleasurable.

Cons: none

Great Speaker Cable

nuclearmedicine4u from Shreveport, LA on 4/2/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is GREAT speaker wire. I changed this out from another brand cable that had preattached banana plugs. The sound from my rear speakers in particular seems much cleaner now as I could was getting a strange light noise before I could not trace down to anything but the other brand speaker wire. I did add the "M" brand gold banana connectors to ease with connectivity and I would highly recommend this product.

Hands-on research

Product Research

Features

Overview: This package contains a 30-foot length of Audioquest X2 speaker cable. This 14-gauge wire comes in a dark gray PVC jacket. The speaker wire is unterminated, allowing you to add your own optional connectors. The jacket features a red stripe along one conductor to help you make the proper connections.

Design: Audioquest X2 speaker cable features Semi-Solid concentric packing. In conventional multi-strand speaker wire, strands can change position within the bundle. Electrical and magnetic interaction are compounded as each strand changes position, causing distortion. Audioquest's Semi-Solid concentric packing, the long-grain copper strands within the smaller, tighter concentric bundle do not change position, significantly reducing distortion.
