Real Upgrade

Tom from Bronx, NY on 7/19/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought the 14 gauge speaker wires with Banana Plugs as an upgrade over the Radio Shack bare wire end cables that I had been using. I really like these. They look, feel, and sound very nice. I am now confident that my connections are solid and I can just forget about wires and enjoy the music. I am very happy with this purchase. Oh, and Crutchfield had them delivered to my door in just a couple of days, very fast turnover. I like that.

Pros: Well made, sturdy, and confidence inspiring. These cables do what they're supposed to do, and look good doing it.

Cons: Real nit picky, but I at first thought that the banana plugs wouldn't fit. I had to apply a little more force than I expected in order to complete the hookup. Now, I know what it takes.

Crutchfeild cable

music man from america on 7/8/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not bad for the price. If your just looking for a basic speaker hook up, this can definitely do. Just plug in and play, no extra hard work. Comes in a ziplock bag. A single cable with 2 Left and 2 Right connections (from one speaker to another, etc.). The sound is good! You will hear all the notes that the song had to deliver. May not be the most accurate (small decibels), but if your just a casual listener and need a quick connection, I would highly recommend. Nice quality.

Pros: shielded, installed connectors, great quality, affordable price, simple and easy.

Cons: For casual listeners of music. Not for super accurate mixing and mastering engineers.

Yes!

Okay For Beginning Setups

Anonymous from Chicago, IL on 5/29/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice looking cables and okay sounding, but not worth buying unless you are just starting to build your stereo set-up. I double-blind A/B'd them against some cables that I made myself. The homemade ones sounded much cleaner, tighter, & overall just better. With lengthier low & high freq. extension, wider dynamic range, and better stereo separation at a fraction of the price.

Pros: -Fairly well made -Inexpensive -Decent sounding up until a point.

Cons: -May not help the sound of mid- to high- level setups. -Make sure your amplifier AND speakers accept this type of banana plug.

Ed from Long Beach, CA on 5/12/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What a difference, I was using what I thought was pretty decent speaker wire and actually it was, but over the last few years I've upgraded every part of my system except for the twenty year old speaker wire. The Crutchfield speaker wire has made a very noticeable improvement in every aspect of the sound in my system. The audio is more detailed, better dynamics, quiet passages quieter. Over all design and build quality are excellent.

Pros: excellent value

Cons: none

Speaker Wires have Excellent Quality, Sleek Look & Solid Connections

coco from Seminole, FL on 4/23/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crutchfield Single 14-gauge Speaker Wire with pre-attached banana plugs are the best! Excellent quality components with a clean look, good solid connections and better sound from my speakers. Best of all, the positive connection from the banana plugs have totally eliminated the dog's oh-so-annoying habit of disconnecting the wires. I only wish I'd bought them when I first bought my stereo - speakers sound better plus would've saved me lots of time reconnecting speakers!

Pros: Excellent quality components Sleek, clean look Solid Connections Better sound from my speakers. Positive connection from the banana plugs eliminate speaker wires becoming disconnected

Cons: None

High quality cable that also looks great. End connectors are heavy and feel very sturdy. The braided cable looks much better than traditional speaker wire when visible running across the floor.

Pros: Heavy duty Sturdy Looks great

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Recently came back to a proper audio system after years of blue tooth speakers and Sonos. Since the layout in the living room is not ideal for the audio components and speaker placement the speaker wire is very visible. I wanted a quality wire with good connections to the speakers and amp but is also attractive to please my wife. These wires accomplished both wonderfully. They are very transparent and well made with the attractive outer jacket. A definite upgrade from basic speaker wire and doesn't break the wallet.

Pros: Transparency Quality build Attractive Affordable

Cons: On the longer run (20'-0") it would be nice if it had a couple more clear sheaths to hold them closer to together.

I have used many types of Audio and Video cables in my time, and the quality and price of Crutchfield's Flagship Cables are, in my opinion are by far, the best!! I used their product to wire my Home Theater and plan to use it during my Home Remodel.

Pros: Premium Quality for Affordable price.

Does job delivering high current signal

Andrew from Capitola, CA on 3/11/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speaker wire is of very nice quality. Does the job delivering high current signal to my speakers. The banana plugs need a firm push the first time. A little tight feeling the first time inserting into both the amp and my banana plug wall plate, but with a little pressure they pop in and stay set in place.

Pros: The speaker wire is of very nice quality. Does the job delivering high current signal to my speakers.

Cons: Banana plugs need some pressure, they pop in and stay set in place.

Great product and quality made. Love 'em.

Anonymous from Mesa, AZ on 3/7/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great speaker wire. Loved them. The banana plugs made them very easy to plug into my Denon Amp and Polk floor speaker. The only minor issues I found were that the aluminum ends come lose but they are just a twist to screw back tight so that was easy to fix. Also, the banana plugs were a little tight to push into both the amp and speakers but with a little pressure they pop in and stay put. I guess the tight fit will help transfer the power to the speakers better. Thanks Crutchfield for a great product. Oh yeah and did I mention the price? Compared to other pre-made speaker wires they are WAY more affordable. Get them you wont be sorry. I would buy them again. I wouldn't mind seeing Crutchfield add a spring right behind the banana plugs to the wires arc in a smoother arch rather than bend right behind the banana plug. But this is very minor.

Pros: Quality construction. Easy to use banana plugs. Great price point!

Cons: Bend a bit more than I would like to see right behind the banana plugs, a spring here might help them to have a smoother arch rather than a sharper bend.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent feel, quality & sound conduction. I've made my own lengths of finished wire with plugs and , relative to my own, these are worth purchasing if the length is appropriate for your use, considering the labor involved.

Pros: Cost effective if the lengths work. Quality appearance if exposed. Sounds fine.

I like and trust Crutchfield products. I needed to replace my 16ga wire that doesn't have and connectors. When I had to move my Home Theater I noticed that it was difficult reconnecting my Klipsch RP-240 floor speakers to my Yamaha AV-A1050 receiver. The position of the four binding-post connectors made it difficult to re-connect the bare wire into the post hole's. Now I don't have to worry about any bare wire cross-short, especially since I am going to bi-amp my RP-240's. [ Mark  Mar 29, 2018 ]
