Overview

Our take on the T-Spec 16-gauge Speaker Wire

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.

This wire meets the highest specifications

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.

Over all, very good quality.

Excellent quality speaker wire! Purchased about 40 ft to rewire my 2012 Toyota Camry SE. Black and White color makes no non-sense install. Will buy again!

Pros: Great quality, thick insulated coating, thin enough for tight locations

Cons: None so far

I'm no expert, but everything sounds good. If this isn't something you do everyday, be advised, the black half strips much easier than the white half.

Pros: System sounds great.

Cons:

Works very well

Quentin from Woodbridge VA on 10/15/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very glad I opted for this speaker wire, used on a component set install, tested used stock wires and these, 100 times better with these wires, so I dumped the stock wires and never looked back, if you are comfortable with rerunning new wire in your application, worth the extra work.

Pros: Great quality, makes the the most of your project

Cons: None

Good wire.

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.

Randall R from Phoenix, Arizona on 2/24/2015

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!

Mdlbldrnt from Sioux Falls SD on 4/6/2014

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

If you a referring to a continuous (RMS) wattage output specification, no, not at all. If your amp will provide a true 1,500 watts RMS, I recommend using a much thicker wire gauge to connect your subwoofers. The longer the run of wire between the amp and subs, the thicker you'll need the wire to be. I would recommend using a minimum of 12 gauge wire for that type of power: http://www.crutchfield.com/g_50600/Car-Speaker-Wire.html?tp=2917#&nvpair=FFGauge|12-gauge I hope that helps! http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan  Aug 27, 2016 ]  Staff
16 is fine but I would run 14 gauge [ CHUCK  Jan 27, 2015 ]
16 gauge will work. But, 14 or 12 gauge will help with signal loss versus the smaller wire. [ JOHN  Jan 27, 2015 ]
Wire Gauge Size Total Amplifier RMS Wattage 0/1 AWG 1000+ Watts 2 AWG 1000-1500 Watts 4 AWG 400-1000 Watts 6 AWG 600-800 Watts 8 AWG 200-400 Watts Kicker Kit, 20 ft, 50 amp, good choice 10 AWG 100-200 Watts Hope this helps, Best, [ Jerry  Jan 27, 2015 ]
