I ordered some of this for the purpose of making a metal detector coil. All of the local carriers (Wal Mart, Home Depot and Lowes) all carried the copper/aluminum wire (with one copper, one aluminum wire). I was worried that it wouldn't work properly, so I ordered some of this.
This stuff costs about 40% less than the big retailer prices, and has the same material running down both wires. I haven't verified whether it's pure copper or CCA, but at least it's uniform. Truth be told, I'm not sure that there would really be much of an impact...but why risk it when you're getting a better deal anyway?
I'm not an audio expert, and I was in a hurry setting up my theater so i ordered these to overnight.
I didn't know they were CCA, and thought they were full copper.
The cable is more rigid than the full copper cables I had that were too short for the new theater room, however I couldn't hear any difference between them, so I didn't end up replacing them with full copper. I do feel cheated though... It's not mentioned anywhere on the page that it is Copper Clad Aluminum, so -1 star.
It has a white strip printed on one side of the cables, allowing you to easily figure out which side is which.
I've got a pair of Self-Adjusting wire strippers ($10-20) from college and they easily stripped this wire. Normal strippers or even some type of knife won't be as fast but will work fine. When unraveling the wire it helps to pull it straight and untwist the wire so you can route it easily. As the wire comes off the spools it's a bit curled.
I didn't use and banana plugs or solder and the speakers sound great.
Heavy gauge speaker wire is more durable, better insulated and will carry a heavier load over longer distances with less signal loss (lower resistance). For most audio installations 16 gauge is fine. I like 14 gauge because I know it will endure the pitfalls of home use such as being nibbled on by the cat and such. The down side is it is not as flexible as 16 gauge speaker wire and that's OK with me.
For those who want to know this wire is easily soldered using regular rosin core electrical solder. Do not use acid core solder or the wire will corrode over time. Instead of buying expensive wire pins to terminate your wire I perform a process known as "tinning". I simply strip 1/2" of insulation from the wire and use a good hot soldering iron and apply solder to each wire end. I then trim the ends to 3/8" length and they are ready to go.
Would I recommend this product? Absolutely. Unless you spent $5000 on a dual mono block tube amp, then this wire should work just fine. KB0QAQ
The white stripe designating ground wire and the RCA label designating signal wire sealed the deal during installation.
I recently washed (industrial sonic bath) my 1977 Harman Kardon model 330B to restore it to the full 16 watts per channel that blows away my new Onkyo 115 watts per channel even prior to this speaker wire upgrade. The biggest difference right now is that speaker wire: 16 gauge on the Harman Kardon vs. the 22 gauge speaker wire supplied by Onkyo, UNLESS Onkyo is resorting to Pyle's technique of reporting 115 watts per channel as peak to peak instead of rms power.
