Great Sound

Mike from Indianapolis, IN on 11/9/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I didn't think that speaker cable would make a big difference in my surround sound system, man was I wrong. I rewired my 9.1 surround system with this speaker wire and it made a big difference in sound. I don't have to crank my Marantz receiver up as loud and the clarity is much better. It made such a big difference, that I rewired my other surround system. I would recommend this product without hesitation. Also, the arrows on the wire make for easy direction of install.

Pros: better sound

Cons: none

Blackbird from Mt. Vernon, Wa. on 10/16/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I received the wire well packaged without damage. The outer jacket of this wire is pliable and durable. It was easy to route. As of this review I have not terminated any end so I can't say how workable this wire will be.

Pros: I receive red the wire well packaged without damage. The outer jacket of this wire is pliable and durable. It was easy to route.

Cons: The wire had a sufficient amount of memory causing it to coil up off the spool. This made it a little awkward to route.

Pete from Warrington, PA on 9/9/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is some serious speaker wire! I ran about 100 feet for 2 surround speakers. Even though I accidentally stapled through it on several occasions, the wire worked perfectly!

Pros: Thick, easy to work with, comes on a nice wooden spool.

Cons: Pricey for sure, but definitely worth it if running in walls and ceiling ls.

Best bang for the buck

Dan from Croydon, PA on 8/21/2016

For the money I feel this speaker wire is the overall best designed cable in the market. It's very affordable, it uses high quality materials and keeps your signal in tact. It's even Direct Burial rated which is awesome if you plan on some outdoor runs. Buy a roll and have it for all your speaker wiring needs. AWESOME!!!

Pros: Best all around speaker cable you can buy

Cons: You not owning it period.

Audio Quest review

Chris from Arizona on 12/2/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This cable is great. It is strong, sturdy, and seemed very robust. I had to pull my baseboards in order to run the cable behind them along with going through the wall to get the clean look I wanted. I also had to pull the molding off around a sliding glass door and run the cable in a channel between the door and drywall. The cable felt robust and up to the task. The cable is considerably thicker than competitors of the same gauge, which created challenges in fitting the cable in the space I had. I had to cave out some dryall behind the baseboards and trim off wood on the backside of the baseboards in order to get everything back in place. The cost of the cable is also a lot more expensive than the in-wall options I found in Home Depot and Lowes. This, however, is a job I wanted to do once, and do it the right way, which is why I used Audio Quest. In the end, I have been real happy with the result!

Pros: great quality cable, and great signal transfer

Cons: expensive, large diameter compared to competitors

Patrick from Buffalo, NY on 12/8/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Prepping for a 7.1 movie room that would be built up as the budget allows. From the studs out, wanted an in-wall installation of all wires. AudioQuest product is beefy yet easy to pull through holes and around duct work. Very happy I opted for 14 guage, a little more, but no matter what speaker/receiver combo I put in, this wire will handle it.

Pros: easy to install spooled wire

Cons:

Very satisfied

Fred from Lincoln, RI on 8/26/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ran these wires 100 feet to supply two Definitive 5.5 speakers. There getting a lot of power from them with no distortion. The wire is easy to work with and very easy to pull. I've priced other wire as well and this is the best value I could find anywhere.

Pros: It's a good felling to have safe reliable wires running in the attic and through the walls.

Cons: Need to do a little work for long runs. Same goes for anything else.

Great Cable to Run With!

Mark from Reading, MA on 2/20/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this cable to run from my Yamaha receiver 50' to each speaker in a billiard room through finished walls. The thick cable jacket on this product allows for that extremely easier. Using a 25' fish tape, the cable was easily pulled through the wall and the jacket protected the inner copper. Great quality cable ... and so easy to run. Can't go wrong with AudioQuest!

Pros: High quality, easy to run cable. Foot marking on the jacket makes measuring out super easy.

Cons: None

TJH from Pittsburgh, PA on 12/24/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased a 250 foot spool to wire indoor and oudoor speakers for an addition. It came well packeaged and appears to be high quality. The wire was easy to run especially since my walls are not finished, I have not connected them to speakers yet so I can't comment on sound. I hope it is good because they will be buried in the walls.

Pros: directional arrows, remaining feet on the roll printed on the wire.

Cons:

Pros: Packaging, semi rigid wire, and high quality wire

Cons: Arrows on the jacking showing directional path need to be bigger.

Cons: None

Easy install

Geoff B from Clarksville, TN on 9/1/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this product for in-wall install for a 5.1 indoor theater in our bonus room and a 2.0 install of outdoor speakers on our back deck. The product was easy to use, slick enough for a +25' pull through a knee-wall area, two different attic spaces and around some tight areas. It was flexible enough to pull around those tight areas, but rigid enough to not bend up like regular wire. Additionally, the spool was well-constructed and did not fall apart like a cardboard spool sometimes will. The outer insulation coating survived the pulls with no damage, though when stripping, I had an issue with going through the inner insulation to the raw wire. I recommend using just the point of a razor knife to barely score the coating, then bending the cable to cause the outer insulation to tear along the score. I used a Vise Grip self-adjusting wire stripper (best stripper I have found) for the inner insulation, which gives a perfect, measured stripped section of wire every time. http://www.irwin.com/tools/pliers-adjustable-wrenches/self-adjusting-wire-stripper

Pros: Easy to run, slick outer coating, quality solid spool, rigid with sufficient flexibility, good sound transmission

Cons: Inner insulation prone to cutting when stripping outer insulation

AudioQuest FLX-14/2 14-Gauge 2-Conductor In-Wall Speaker Cable

Mark D from Arvada, CO on 7/5/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I found the product extremely durable and well shipped. I also found that the product came with arrows pointing in one direction. This created quite a debate among us installing it. However after some tech research we found the arrows to go from the receiver to the speakers. We really are going to enjoy this wire for years to come no matter what speakers will be in place.

Pros: Well shipped, easy install and durable

Cons: the arrow should come with a small label stating from power source to speaker. It was fun laughing about the whole thing.

First time I've ever used this wiring. It worked great for the application I was involved with. It's the right gauge for the outdoor speakers I'm installing and it went very well. The sound from the speakers is very crisp and clear and I'm certain the wiring is part of that.

Pros: Very easy packaging to work with, rolls out well, easy to work with.

Cons: Wish it came in black.

Picky John from Chicago, IL on 5/11/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Speaker wire that makes a difference. I used this wire to connect my receiver from a another room to the in-ceiling speakers in the kitchen. The extra gauge wire (14 AWG) was worth the extra money. Before, the sound was sort of muddy, but now it is crisp and has more clarity.

Pros: Flexible and heavy jacket makes it easy to pull the wires through conduit and walls.

Cons: A bit pricey.

Great Cable

Harbir from Ashburn, VA on 5/4/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My contractor building the basement wanted me to order the cable prior to the county electrical inspection. So, I ordered this cable from Crutchfield and he pulled it. All the electrical work passed, including the cable for surround sound. I haven't tested the sound yet but I think it's worth mentioning that the cable is high quality that you don't have to worry about the safety of it, especially in the walls. Can't wait to test out the surround sound once the basement is all done.

Pros: Great quality cable and passed electrical inspection for in-wall/in-ceiling speakers.

Cons: None

Roubaix from Harrisonburg VA on 4/11/2013

We've only installed the cable, not 'used' it yet, but I will say that it pulled through the walls/studs etc. very easily and I found the feet-remaining marks on the cable remaining on the reel extremely useful. It told me if I could make the next run of cable work or not...

There isn't much to tell accept it's great wire! Very smooth and easy to pull through walls. It doesn't kink up and it's very well made.

Pros: Great construction.

Cons: None

Very nice sound

I selected the AudioQuest FLX-14/2 for my home theater wiring and it really rocks. My room is 25X20 and this wire did the job. Remember that it is on the pricey side. Use banana clips for best performance.

A little stiff which made it difficult to manipulate through tight spaces in the wall.

Absolutely great product and worth every penny! Have used lesser wire with other guys and went to wire my house so I got a roll to try and wow! Strong case, smooth and slick. I trust this in my walls for the next 50 years both for the safety and the sound. I spent a fortune on this wire, wired the whole house, and was glad to pay it. Kept calling back for more and adding additional rooms since I had the confidence it would work indefinitely. Everyone including electrician and contractor ranted about how good it is...

Got this to run out to my patio for Polk Atrium 45s as a 2nd zone from Denon . 2808CI thru an old Yamaha receiver. Speakers are mounted on mailbox posts . at corners of the patio, so fully exposed to elements. Had originally just run . some Monster XP out there, so knew I needed to improve on that. Was easier . to work with than I expected, and improved the sound depth significantly, . brought the Polks back to life. Unrolled it for a couple of days on basement . floor to reduce the coiling.

Quality Cable for the Price

Great quality cable for the price. I like the fact that the cable has foot markers and directional flow. The build quality is much better than the Monster Cable's comparable in-wall wires. Thanks Crutchfield for the fast shipping.

Cons:

Highly recommended

I think Audioquest has some of the best audio/video cables out there and even when I'm not a real audiophile, I can tell the difference in sound coming from cheap, stock cables and good cables and interconnects from good brands. The good thing is that Audioquest has products suitable for people that can't afford a 1k interconnect. I used this product to bi-wire some speakers and even when it 's optimized for an in-wall application, I used it as regular speaker cable, just adding banana connectors in one end and the bare cable on the speaker side. The sound was great and is a very good quality wire. I went with the 14 AWG wire over the 16 AWG for obvious reasons and it's very easy to work and terminate the wire. One thing that surprised me is how the guys at Crutchfield protected the cable when they shipped it to me, there was like 5 levels of protection, it took me like 3 minutes to see what I had just bought. Price was great, I really needed the cable and I went with the ad to BBuy and they didn't match the price of the same product, so I had to order from Crutchfield on line, I had to wait a few more days but it's worth it, they shipped it very quick and for a very reasonable price. Next time you want to buy something compare, don't rush. Good job Crutchfield , great product.

Prewired my basement before I finished it off. Really liked the wire, very sturdy and durable. Liked the markings every foot to let you know how much wire you used.

In-wall speaker wiring

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product worked well. I wired several rooms for Bose jewel cube speakers. I had to fish the wire up from the basement into first floor walls and that has fairly easy. The wire on the smallish spool (125') took a little while to "relax" but was easy to pull. The gauge was probably a little big for my application as I ran six lines to the terminal location and it is a little snug going up into the wall from the basement.

Purchased this speaker wire for use in a home project - running speaker wire from inside the house to the ouside covered patio. Was wire thick enough to run up the indise of the walls without too many issues (bending). Easy to hook-up into speakers an stereo. Would purchase again.

Puts Monster to Shame..

RICHARD from Woodcliff Lake, NJ on 1/31/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought the Monster CRS142rcl-80 and Audioquest flxx14/2 as CF didn't have enough of the Monster which I thought I liked better. Upon receipt and inspection of each, the quality of the Audio Quest product for product price for price is superior.. You're paying for the Monster name in many cases if it comes down to just speaker wire..

Cons:

Nice Wiring!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As a retired electrician I can really appreciate well made, quality wiring. I have never seen anything like it (ie: the way the copper strands are concentrically wrapped around each other). Seems to perform flawlessly with no noise, and pulled easily thru the walls. My only negatives were #1- outside jacket is cream colored and does not look good coming out of a pure white ceiling, & #2- the cable is wrapped way to tightly on the small reel, so you get curly-cues- especially at the end. It would be better packaged as a 1 foot diameter "loop", & get rid of the small reel. I highly reccomend this product, but next time I would take it off the reel and let it "relax" on the garage floor for a week before installing.

Features

Overview: The FLX-DB14/2 in-wall speaker cable has two 14 guage conductors to supply wiring for one speaker. Using Semi-Solid packing, the individual copper strands within the bundle don't change position, resulting in reduced distortion. The long grain structure in the low distortion, oxygen free, high-conductivity copper AudioQuest uses results in a natural sound, uncolored by the cable. The Star-Quad geometry lowers cable inductance, reducing susceptibility to external noise sources.
