Overview

Our take on the Arista 16-Gauge Speaker Wire

Most speakers don't include speaker wire. Arista's 50-foot length of 16-gauge wire is an affordable solution. Warranty: 90 days.

This stuff works great!! very easily installed and easily marked for wiring up!!

Arista Speaker Wire

Chris from Creede, CO on 7/30/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered the wire along with some new speakers and a receiver. I guess for convenience sake. I was disappointed when installing the wires. You have to be really careful when separating the conductors because the insulation tears randomly. I had to carefully cut the conductors apart with a sharp blade. Never experience that before.

Pros: Convenient to order

Cons: First time I ever had trouble separating conductors without randomly tearing the insulation

easy to work with

Tim from Indianapolis, IN on 4/5/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was the first time I used this brand of speaker wire and I had no problems at all. It's easy to work with and sounds just great.

Pros: No problems separating or stripping. Sounds great.

Cons: none

Don't buy it

drlawrence from Spring Green, WI on 2/3/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

trisha from South Carolina on 11/6/2015

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

invaderzim from California on 11/4/2015

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

JoeP from New Jersey on 7/15/2015

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

Scotty from Scottsville, KY on 6/17/2015

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.

Pros:

Cons:

inspect every inch

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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!

Connor G from Colleyville, Texas on 1/19/2015

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

Cons:

Nice Wire

This is nice wire to use when installing your mids and highs. It cuts cleanly and is very flexible even in the cold.
