JL Audio comes up with another money-saving idea — you can change the color of MetaWire™ cables simply by stripping off the outer jacket. One roll of cable can handle power and ground requirements, so you never buy or use more than you need.

JL Audio encases the Metawire cable in a clear, heat- and chemical-resistant jacket, then covers the cable with a second colored outer jacket. Run the Metawire to your power and ground connections, then strip the outer jacket off your ground cable — instant color coding, with no waste. The oxygen-free, fine-strand copper cable is also rated for marine use.

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