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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The wiring was heavy duty, and was easy to cut. They hide better with having a black color. The square and circle casing made it easier to install, especially for people with bad eye sight.

Pros: Different shape of positive and negative wires and black casing. Flex easily

Cons:

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfectly made speaker wire. Has white and black colors, also has square and round so you can tell whats positive and whats negative without seeing the wire. True to gauge. Awesome wires!

Pros: Black and white colors. Square and round texture.

Cons: A little pricy, but worth it.

Stout wire.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This differs dramatically in quality from the no brand, low spec wire I currently have in my 2014 Ford Focus SE Hatchback at present. Originally I was ignorant of T1 Spec Wire and it's benefits to the sound system operating at its highest performance capabilities. I added a pair of Focal tweeters to my car in a rather unconventional place between the C and D pillars. I called Crutchfield to ask what wire I should use and this was recommended. I was originally intent ordering 20 feet, but after consulting with the Crutchfield advisor I upped it to 30 feet (15 ft each side from speaker placement to rear of the JVC KW-NT810HD head unit) and If I had not done so I would have come up about 2 and a half feet short. It is better to have too much wire than not enough! Otherwise, you will end up having to make unconventional and deviating the runs to your wiring system harness, and that is not acceptable to me. Now I will begin to replace all of my cars 14 speakers with the Focal brand and convert it to T Spec Wire from Crutchfield!

Pros: A stiff but pliable and oxygen free also wire that speaks of quality and endurance!

Cons: None whatsoever!

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
