Monster Cable is a world leader and innovator in the highly specialized field of speaker cables. Their research has found that cable construction, the method of winding, and the insulating dielectrics around the cable all have a profound effect on controlling the distortion-producing electromagnetic fields generated by complex audio signals.

Monster's high-value, entry-level speaker cable offers audiophile-quality performance at low cost. XP is thinner than Original Monster Cable, so it's great for small speakers, mini systems, and rack systems. It is also excellent for surround speakers.

Monster twist-on connectors highly recommended.


  • Specially designed cable windings for more accurate transfer of musical signals
  • Patented Magnetic Flux Tube construction breaks up internal magnetic fields for more natural music reproduction
  • Linear Polyethelyne (LPE) insulation around conductors reduces dielectric signal loss
  • Impressive frequency response, and dynamic range for a cable of this size and price
  • Monster's "Best Buy" entry-level speaker cable offers audiophile-quality performance at low cost
  • Especially recommended for small speakers, mini systems, and rack systems

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent product at a good price. You need at least 100 ft if you're putting in a 5.1 surround sound speaker system. 16 gauge works well for most people, but if you have really long runs (greater than 80 ft) and high power (greater than a few hundred watts) you might want to move up to 14 gauge speaker wire.



Perfect Gauge

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This stuff is great for my modest home theater. The gauge is just right for my small front channels, though I went with a larger gauge for my center channel.

I will definitely be buying more of this gauge when I add 5.1 surrounds.
