This wire meets the highest specifications

Your amplifier puts out big power and needs low-resistance wiring in order to deliver its power effectively. This T-Spec 16-gauge speaker wire meets all American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) standards for size, resistance, and insulation quality, so you can be sure that your power will flow efficiently to your speakers and subs.

Oxygen-free virgin copper

Recycled copper often contains impurities and contaminants from the recycling process that can adversely affect a copper wire's conductivity. That's why T-Spec uses only oxygen-free non-recycled,virgin copper to maximize power flow in their speaker wires. The high strand count of this cable and its special PVC blended jacket give it an extraordinary flexibility for an easier installation. In fact, this speaker wire is so rugged that it's marine certified, too. Warranty: 1 year.

This wire is sold by the foot — enter the number of feet desired in the "quantity" field of your shopping cart.

T-Spec 16-gauge Speaker Wire

Written By Mdlbldrnt, Sioux Falls SD on Sunday, April 06, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed wire along with other items for my recent sound system overhaul. My Crutchfield rep suggested this product so I purchased along with other items. Wire being wire pretty much not a whole lot to say other than it is a quality wire with great flexibility for ease of installation. Cost was reasonable with anything I could get local. Ordering at the same time just made it easier to have it all at once.

Pros: Top quality wire and great flexibility for easy installation

Cons: none
