This wire is great. The length remaining markings allow you to easily measure out the length you need and know how much wire you have left. Quality construction, especially for the price. Only 4 stars for the value for the price because you can get it cheaper directly from the monoprice website (which I only realized after my purchase from amazon). I would recommend this wire for anyone who wants/needs larger wire for their home theater system.

The spool and cable was marked as 16/2 Awg. However when I stripped the wires, I noticed that they were very thin. I then compared it to some 16/2 Awg speaker wire that I have on hand, and it was clearly much thinner. I am waiting for a response from the seller.

What can I say-- does exactly what it's supposed to do and seems first quality. Arrived promptly ahead of schedule and at a very competitive price.

This stuff is a great deal for the price but as others have mentioned, the wire gauge seems to be shy of what I would expect a 16 gauge wire to look like. I have other spools of 16 gauge wire and there is definitely a difference in the diameter. I used it for wiring up my surround speakers and I doubt I would be able to tell any difference due the to wire size.

Bough a few rolls before for my complete surround sound system project. Woks great. Now bought 2 more rolls to run lengths from stereo in family room (to a speaker channel selector) then to the attic for second floor in ceiling speakers to supply tunes for 2 of the bedrooms. Now we don't have to have the music turned up super load to hear the music upstairs!

I bought 2 rolls to easily run 2 lengths side by side all the way through the walls. By the way, you always need more wire than you think. It doesn't always go as far as you might imagine. 250 feet gave some leftover after my project but not much!

I use this wire to connect low-power surround speakers to my home theater. It's rugged and fairly well shielded, making it trouble-free when installed in inaccessible areas such as behind walls.

For my main speakers, I tend to like thicker gauge wire (10 to 12 gauge), but surround, in-wall/ceiling and other remote applications tend to be low power and less critical. In these cases, the quality of the shielding, stiffness and UL ratings are more important, and this is there this product shines.

Definitely recommended, especially considering the low price!

I bought two rolls of this and really only needed one. I wanted to be on the safe side and have it and not need it then to need it and not have it.

Pros: The amount of wire remaining on the roll is printed every foot on the white insulation. Great wire, color coded.

Cons: Silly little string left behind for a third wire to be pulled through the insulation if desired by the manufacture I am assuming. Not anything to be concerned about but its the only thing I can find wrong with it.

I have used the cheap stuff for years but decided to splurge and get this instead. What a difference. I am real happy with the wires being together in a sleeve, cuts down on the mess in the back of my receiver. I also heard that for house installation it needs to be this kind instead of the cheap bare wire stuff. Overall I am glad I paid a little more for this.

Got this speaker wire to hook up my surround sound for my home theater system. I like that it has the white outer coating so that it blends in with my floorboards. This is a huge roll and will be plenty of wire for me for a while. Sound transmits great through these wires even through long wires to my rear speakers.

i ordered this speaker wire to run all over my house to install some speakers in the sealing and seems like a good product. easy to run, easy to strip and easy to attach to the speakers. i have yet to test this with my surround sound because i'm not done with the house but otherwise no complaints here
