Customer Q&A

9 questions already asked

Can this be used as outdoor wire? It'll be ran from the exterior wall up a post across a crossbeam to the speaker.

This speaker wire is not UV rated. However, it could be used in dry spaces out of direct sunlight.
zachary  Sep 03, 2023 (Staff)
I understand that CL3 wire CAN be exposed to the elements without running through a PVC-type tubing. I understand that running it through such tubing will protect it even more, but it should stand up to the outdoors elements. Can you confirm that?
john  Jul 31, 2023
1 answer
Technically, CL3 rating specifically regards fire-rating and voltage handling. We have other wire options that are specifically rated for direct burial.
zachary  Jul 31, 2023 (Staff)
Would there be any reason to keep all speaker wire the same length in a single room with 4 speakers? I have heard before that you want to but not from a reliable source.
rob  Jan 16, 2023

Ideally it's nice to have your speaker wire be consistent for all your speakers but you can have some variation. If you wanted to dive a little deeper we have experienced advisors available to help discuss your particular set up so please give us a call at 800.324.9695 and we will get you taken care of!

Can this wire be used to install low-voltage LED tape late?
kaya  Oct 27, 2022
1 answer
This will work as the wire is CL3 rated for in wall use and is thick enough at 14 AWG to handle some distance if needed.
zachary  Oct 28, 2022 (Staff)
Where is this wire (14 AWG, 2 conductor) made?
kent  Mar 26, 2022

Country of origin is China.

How many strands are in this 14/2 wire?
christopher  Dec 28, 2020
2 answers
Based on the product image, a reasonable estimate is 70 to 100 strands per conductor (probably closer to the lower end and knowledge of standard strand counts for a given gauge would likely give the exact answer). A greater strand count would require thinner strands and would make the cable more flexible. I can't imagine any installation where this would not be flexible enough. If the skin effect motivates your question, know that it is insignificant for audio frequencies (consult any competent engineering textbook on electromagnetics).
tammiw  Nov 04, 2021
We do not know the total count of the individual copper strands on each side of this wire as well as the other brand/sizes in-wall speaker wire. I wish I had different news for you there

What gauge wire needed to run 50 feet from reciever?
tony  Oct 03, 2020
3 answers
It depends on how much audio power you are pushing to the speaker. But, I run about 100 audio watts per channel and I buy from crutch field at 18 gauge. Great products.....
robert  Oct 08, 2020
I don't know the rule or requirements but I bought 14 gauge to run 3 speakers about 30 feet from my receiver. Probably overkill but they sound great and I ran them through wall so I didn't want any chance of a thinner wiring breaking on me mid wall.
patrick  Oct 03, 2020
From Crutchfield. "Thick wire (12 or 14 gauge) is recommended for long wire runs, high power applications, and low-impedance speakers (4 or 6 ohms). For relatively short runs (less than 50 feet) to 8 ohm speakers, 16 gauge wire will usually do just fine. It's cost-effective and easy to work with. Ask your advisor to recommend the proper gauge for your installation." I purchased 14 gauge wire because I wanted less possible interference. It is, however, thicker that 16 gauge wire. I recommend staying away from 18 gauge wire.
frank  Oct 03, 2020
I purchased your 2 conductor speaker wire that has 4 different colored wires for 2 pairs pf speakers. Is there a standard color code for the positive and negative wires?
john  Sep 18, 2020
1 answer
Typically, RED is positive (+) and BLACK is Negative (-). But, as long as you keep the colors the same on each end, it doesn't really matter, except if someone comes to help, and uses the black/red standard.
frank  Oct 03, 2020
Is this wire directional?
colby  Oct 15, 2020

troy  Oct 15, 2020
No it is not. Better that it not be as well. There is no scientific reason to make directional speaker wire, and it is easier to install this way. You should get the phase (black and red wires) right though; i.e., connected to the correct terminals.
daniel  Oct 15, 2020
This wire is not directional. After a year i will be upgrading the wire.
arn  Oct 15, 2020
I'm sorry, I don't know.
