Don't buy it

Written by: drlawrence from Spring Green, WI on February 3, 2016

It is difficult to tell which wire is the + or ground because the white stripe is hard to see. Stripping the two wires away from each other exposed bare wire instead of separating nicely.

Pros: cheap

Cons: cheap

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

i had other speaker wire but i kept stripping the wire and then it was too short. i call and talked they suggested too get their wire. i am very pleased with this product. the sound with the sony receiver i bought from them is good as a home theater quality. i'll be looking for more of their products in the near future

Pros: wow sounds good beyond my expatations

Cons: haven't found any yet

Okay, but doesn't separate well

Written by: invaderzim from California on November 4, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

good enough wire but as mentioned in another review the two strands don't separate easily. Usually you can just snip between the wires and pull them apart when needed; these require being cut all the way along where you want it separated.

Pros: overall fine

Cons: doesn't split easily

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used tow 50' lengths of this cable to wire outdoor speakers under the eaves above the deck and it's working fine. Seems like good quality stranded copper conductors and sturdy enough insulation that it handled stapling and jamming it into small spaces between shingles to hide it with no problems.

Pros: Performs as expected, even for limited outdoor exposure.

Cons: None

Mixed Feelings

Written by: Scotty from Scottsville, KY on June 17, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Reasonably priced, adequate quality. Certainly does the job. But my one complaint is that it is difficult to split the two wires apart without breaking through the insulation. Just pulling the two sides apart leaves patches of bare wire, where the insulation splits unevenly. I finally used a sharp knife to cut slowly and carefully down the middle trough between the two wires. With a little trial and error, this gave me enough separation, without damaging the insulation, to connect the wire ends to the speaker and received terminals.

Brand new pdx-v9 amp tripped on start-up. I found an internal short on a new wire.

Pros: Most of the wire was fine.

Cons: Found a short wire did not separate easy.

Great length wire!

Written by: Connor G from Colleyville, Texas on January 19, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This speaker wire came with the correct length I needed for my install and still had a bit of wire left over! Wire stripping and soldering was easy with the wires material!

Pros: Easily stripped and color coordinated with a white stripe on one side showing which was your negative or positive
