The speaker cable that started it all, Original Monster Cable helped audiophiles and music lovers get more out of their music simply by upgrading their cables. Original Monster Cable has earned it's reputation as the industry standard for high performance speaker cable, which is one reason why it's in use by more audiophiles than any other brand.

Reproducing the wide dynamic range in today's digital recordings requires impressive amounts of current and power, which can cause audible distortions as the music signal travels down the wire. By using advanced design and manufacturing technologies, Monster Cable minimizes distortions, maximizing the strength and quality of the signal that reaches your speakers.

Monster twist-on connectors highly recommended.

  • Large copper conductor area for better power transfer and improved dynamics
  • Special Monster Cable winding configuration for improved clarity and a more natural reproduction of the music
  • Wide dynamic range, improved low frequency signal performance, and improved clarity
  • Recommended for all speaker systems and power amplification levels

Very impressive

Written By Eddy, Boston, MA on Friday, March 09, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This wire from Monster is amazing. It is incredibly thick. As a matter of fact, when stipping it I had to use the 10 guage slot on the wire strippers and it was still too small for this wire. The new Energy Veritas V5.1 monitors sound great. Thank you Crutchfield.

Pros: Very thick and heavy.

Cons: There is no indication on the wire to deliniate black from red or right from left which becomes frustrating when you've got long wire runs. This is why I gave it 4 and not 5 stars.

This is definitely MONSTER Cable

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased 80ft of this cable so far for building my component HT system. I knew this stuff was thick, but was suprised at how thick when I took it out of the box. I terminated it with Monster Banana Connectors and it sounds great. I bought the largest gauge wire strippers I could find and glad I did because I had to use the 10-gauge hole or else I would have cut into the wire when stripping it. I don't think you can be disappointed with this speaker wire.

It you have invested in top quality stereo equipment, why would you half-step on the speaker wires? You wouldn't. Monster is hands down the Best.

Fantastic wire. Truly professional grade. I connected my amp and speakers with this wire, plus some Monster banana plugs. The speakers sound great! Not a hint of anything but clean sound.
