Stinger PRO Series Speaker Wire
Priced per foot (16 Gauge)
Our take on the Stinger PRO Series Speaker Wire by Crutchfield's Jo Greene
Don't let cheap speaker wire strangle your amplifier. Get every ounce of juice from your amp to your speakers with Stinger PRO Series oxygen-free copper wire. The positive markings and ribbed jacket make it easy to keep your speakers' polarity straight. The lower the gauge, the thicker the wire — we recommend 14- to 16-gauge wire if you're connecting your speakers to a small or moderately powerful amp. Warranty: 1 year.
This Stinger PRO Series speaker wire is available by the foot. Enter the number of feet desired in the "quantity" field of your shopping cart.
Stinger PRO Series Speaker Wire Reviews

Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: This Stinger PRO Series 16-gauge speaker wire is sold by the foot and cut to length. It is made of OPC (Oxygen-free Copper), and features length markings at every foot on the black jacket. The speaker wire's polarity is marked by the shape of the black jacket: one wire has a square jacket and the other wire has a round jacket.

I used the square as the negative but it really doesn't matter. Speaker wire is marked + or - so you don't cross them during installation with the exception of some that uses two types of conductor. (i.e. copper one way and aluminum the other) [ Kevin Feb 03, 2016 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The Stinger SPW514K is 0.325" wide (both wires side by side) and 0.16" tall. Each strand individually if you separate them is 0.16" x 0.16". If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

Each job is different. It depends on exactly where you place the amp, where you place the subs, how you run your wire, where the battery is located, & how you penetrate the firewall. You are going to have to either estimate it or measure it. Add a few feet to your estimate. It's better to have 5 ft extra than to be 2 inches short. [ JASON Dec 01, 2015 ]
The size of the wire you need can vary depending on how much power (wattage) is going to each speaker, and the distance the wire needs to run from your amplifier to your speaker(s). In order to determine what gauge wire is best for your system, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. I hope that helps! [ Larry Oct 05, 2016 ] Staff
