Steve from Jacksonville Beach, FL on 12/20/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used this speaker wire to re-wire the 6 speakers on my boat. This wire is far superior to what was originally installed. Nice thick protective casing and VERY limber. The Plus symbol on one side makes for keeping positive and negative connections super simple. Great product!

Pros: Nice Coating, Very Limber

Cons: 16' feet of it had to be cut out due to cuts/nicks through the protective coating exposing raw wire. The wire was shipped and received this way.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used this 16-gauge speaker wire to connect an external PA system. The wire strips well and has a quality feel. The braided wire inside is soft and can be a little annoying to terminate, but it also helps with overall flexibility. I will be buying this again for any outdoor projects.

Steve from Wichita, KS on 9/4/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is some of the best wire you can find for marine use. I'm a big fan of high quality wire and have used it to make low quality components sound like pro quality systems. For automotive and home use where corrosion isn't an issue in would still go with fine strand copper but for a wet environment it is this JL wire all the way.

Pros: Tinned for corrosion resistance. Positive side is clearly labeled on the wire every foot.

Cons: None that I can think of

Monty from LOs Angeles, Ca. on 7/17/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This wire is two conductor CL3 audio wire from JL Audio features clearly marked with 1 foot marks and + (positive) references the length of the wire making for a very simple installation. The cost per foot is competitively priced. All wire is not created equal! You may be tempted as I was to use some really good speaker wire. But is it marine rated? I did my homework on this one so this review is not two lines. First let's briefly look at common wire on the local shelf of you custom car audio shop. This wire is industry standard multi-strand copper UL (Underwriters Laboratory) rated as CL(Class)2. This is high quality oxygen free copper. Next would be UL rated CL3 and this is what you want. CL3 wiring is used in high-end home theater installation and HDMI cables as examples .CL2 offers some electric shock protection while CL3 offers a bit more because it is rated to carry more voltage. CL3 may be used in place of CL2, but not the other way around. CL3 wire is used in marine applications because of its tough jacket (protection from elements and constant vibration), signal transfer (clarity), and shock protection. Do your install once right or do it once a season.

Pros: Price, UL CL3, clearly marked, stays flexible

Cons: only comes in white

DT from Fair Oaks, CA on 3/14/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speaker wire looks to be of great quality! I noticed how thick the protective jacket was and how good the core wiring looked also. I had actually left the wiring out in the sun (on top of my boat cover) on accident for a few days and when I went to get them, they still looked brand new. Can't wait to put them to the test.

Pros: Thick wire protection that's water resistant.

Cons: None so far

Thanks for your question. The price is per foot. You can just choose whatever length you need in the quantity. Hope this helps.[ Kenny  May 01, 2017 ]  Staff
I don't see why you couldn't. I did the same thing a couple years ago, everything still works. Just make sure you use heat shrink butt splices. Those help keep it together when you are going through those rollers out there.[ Jonathan  May 14, 2016 ]
