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.
Amazon should clear all the old reviews as this is not the same product.
Do not buy this wire!
This is flat speaker wire made by RCA. It is 50 foot of 16 AWG, 100% oxygen free multi-stranded copper wire in a clear PVC jacket. One side is marked as positive. Mine came in sealed in RCA retail packaging.
The wire isn't thin like those micro-thin ribbon wires, but it is very thin - likely a millimeter or under. It looks to be the same size as the Acoustic Research PR361 Speaker Cable. I plan to use it under my living room carpet.
I can't comment on sound quality since I haven't used it, but I expect it would perform like any other decent 16 awg speaker wire.
I added some photos since it was hard for me to tell exactly what I was looking at from the original.
I'm giving it one star because I believe the manufacturer is trying to mislead us with copper-looking wire. I can imagine someone cutting this copper coated wire into several lengths, going to the trouble of soldering connectors, then realizing it's not up to spec. They'll then try to return the cut up wire and hear "but it doesn't say copper on the label and you already cut it." What garbage.

It's hard to find good speaker cable anymore, everyone tries to sell you 22-awg as 16-awg. This is real RCA 16-awg wire, and it is real copper. I highly recommend.Published 12 days ago by Melanie C
Excellent value and clean new product, but somehow all my gauge measurements deem this 18 gauge not 16 gauge. It is still a good cabling.Published 13 days ago by Robert Kirbo
