Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Haven't had a chance to use the cable yet - I moved and have not hooked up my stereo system yet, but I knew I needed new speaker wire. I compared prices and at I found that Crutchfield's price was unbeatable, so I bought them.

Pros: Correct Size - Great Price.

Cons: Honestly, don't know.

Great Speaker Wire

Written By Anonymous, Louisville, KY on Monday, May 06, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very high quality speaker wire for an affordable price. The 16 gauge wire is great for home theater systems like mine. I combined the wire with Monster banana clips and the sound is great. Paired with polk rm87 speaker system and polk psw111 sub. Can't complain about the sound at all.

Monster standard speaker cable

Written By Todd, Alamogordo, NM on Saturday, February 02, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Quality cable, and very easy to run and connect between components. Glad I made the jump from using cheap cable in the past. I was afraid I needed to have connectors on the cable ends, but not so. I especially appreciate the white coding along one of the wires so you know which is pos/neg.

The Sickness (Good)

This is absolutely the most quality wire I have ever seen/used. My current stock is over 10 years old and still Exhibits the the same flexibility it did when I originally purchased it. My favorite attribute of this wire is the exceptional jacket. Very Flexible ... easy to strip and high-quality fibers within. The wire is Very easy to work with much nicer than the Standard Transparent copper wire jacket that That you have to fight with. The clearly branded silver letters make it easy to identify which side of the wire you are working. I'm relieved to find this wire 10 years later I'm going to stock up on it.

Pros: Exceptionally flexible and easy to work with high-quality Rubber jacket and copper fibers

Cons: Not available in thicker gauges

High quality, flexible cable for a great price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very nice cabling! I used a wire cutter and stripper I had to cut these wires down to size, and hooked them up to all my home theatre equipment. The cable is super flexible, with good heft to it and a thick, clean copper core. It sounds amazing, and I highly recommend it. Thanks again Crutchfield!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice heavy high quality cable. To my sense the 16 AWG gauge wire is the perfect balance point between light weight "zip cord" and the heavier gauge but far more expensive "original" Monster Cable. I got it with the Monster banana connectors (QL GMT-H MKII) and then went together very smoothly.

Pros: Soft flexible rubber coating and wire with enough heft that the cable lies nicely in use.

Cons: None that I see or hear.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have always used Monster cable for my speakers. I used this in combination with my Atrum4 Polk Audio speakers I bought. The cable adds a lot to the sound of the speakers. Great buy.

Wires were perfect for my Polk speakers

Good wire. Well constructed and easy to work with. Carries a good signal.

Great Quality Cable

Written By Tracy, Sandston, VA. on Monday, August 23, 2010

I purchased two rolls of this and was very impressed with the quality of it. Very flexible and
the jacket strips easily from the wire. I used it to run a pair of outdoor Polks on our patio and it
worked great. I'm going to use the other roll in my vehicle. I'm sure you have seen the price
of speaker cable, some of it is very expensive and this is a great alternative. Low cost and
great quality are usually not referenced together but what else would you expect from the
great people at Crutchfield.

Wonderful cables!

Written By Dan, Boston, MA on Monday, April 27, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These cables are a great buy. They aren't expensive and when you just feel them you can tell they are great quality. I used to have really cheap cable that was so stiff you could cut off three feet and swordfight with it. These cables are very flexible and the wires don't crack the instant you are trying to twist them into a connector.

excellent speaker wire

Written By Robin, Central New Jersey on Monday, August 13, 2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced older, lower quality speaker wire with the monster cable, and the sound improvement is significant. The music sounds more clear and louder at the same volume.
