Quality in-wall speaker cable on a budget

Enjoy crisp, detailed sound with this two-conductor in-wall speaker cable from AudioQuest.

Plus, twisted pair construction minimizes radio frequency and electromagnetic interference to keep your music noise-free.

Handy extras for easy installation

AudioQuest includes sequential footage markers on the cable jacket to simplify measuring. Directional arrows tell you which way the signal should flow through the cable for the best sound.

Durable in-wall- and direct burial-rated speaker wire

When you're running wire inside your walls or underground, it's important that you use speaker cable that's approved for that purpose. This cable's CL3 certification means it passed NEC (National Electric Code) safety tests for in-wall usage. AudioQuest's FLX cables are also rated for direct burial. You can run FLX cables to your outdoor speakers and bury them in the ground without a protective conduit.

Excellent, high quality speaker wire! If you're doing longer runs, I recommend getting the 125 ft or longer because it will come on a spool. This is much easier to use than the 50 ft which comes coiled in a box.

Features

Overview: The FLX-DB16/2 in-wall speaker cable has two 16 gauge conductors to supply wiring for one speaker. Using Semi-Solid packing, the individual copper strands within the bundle don't change position, resulting in reduced distortion. The long grain structure in the low distortion, oxygen free, high-conductivity copper AudioQuest uses results in a natural sound, uncolored by the cable. The Star-Quad geometry lowers cable inductance, reducing susceptibility to external noise sources.

Needed quality cables to hook up new in ceiling speakers, had to be approved for in-wall use, this fit the bill. [ James  Feb 03, 2017 ]

I am remodeling kitchen and need speaker wire that can be installed behind drywall [ Jeffrey  May 05, 2017 ]
Running outside speakers. [ JAMES  Apr 12, 2017 ]
Its as simple as having the combination of being in wall compliant, individual red and black colored lines at a reasonable price. [ Steven  Mar 16, 2017 ]
Needed to wire 6 Polk in-ceiling speakers in 3 different locations in a new construction home. Some long runs back to the amp, and this wire has performed accurately and dependably. Also easy to use for typical hook-ups (i.e. not behind walls/ceilings) Just a great balance of value and performance. [ John  Jan 16, 2017 ]
Already had this brand installed in walls and needed more. [ Todd  Sep 04, 2016 ]
Great quality [ THOMAS A  Jul 03, 2016 ]

Rating on Crutchfield's site [ Raymond Di  Feb 26, 2016 ]
Best product for the price [ John  Jan 06, 2016 ]
short runs [ David  Oct 28, 2016 ]
We've been using it since 2011 and it's been great to work with, easy to fish, strip, doesn't kink and rubber threads inside along wires help with durability and protect from smashing. Good conductivity/no noticable current loss- all we like is background music inside and outside anyhow. [ DAN  Mar 30, 2016 ]
length of in wall wire [ Susan L.  Feb 14, 2016 ]
