Our take on the AudioQuest G2 Speaker Cable

Low-grade speaker wire can often be a weak link in a home theater system. Upgrade to AudioQuest's G2 speaker cable and make sure that your speakers are getting the cleanest, most accurate signal possible.

Low-grade speaker wire can often be a weak link in a home theater system. Upgrade to AudioQuest's G2 speaker cable and make sure that your speakers are getting the cleanest, most accurate signal possible.

AudioQuest's cable designs come from years of in-house research and careful engineering. Their G2 speaker cables use a special concentric arrangement that keeps the bundled strands in the same position throughout the length of the cable. The signal encounters less potentially damaging interactions and shifts in magnetic environment, resulting in sound that's clearer and more dynamic. Conductors made of long-grain copper ensure efficient signal transfer with minimal loss.

Product Highlights:

  • flexible 16-gauge speaker cable
  • long-grain copper conductors
  • bundled strands use concentric packing to minimize signal interference
  • PVC cable jacket
  • stripe on cable helps you make the right connection
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

What's in the Box:

  • 30' length of 16-gauge speaker wire (unterminated) in dark gray PVC jacket

The white color is a good change from transparent. Seems to be better quality than Monster.

Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: This package contains a 30-foot length of Audioquest G2 speaker cable. This 16-gauge wire comes in a dark gray PVC jacket. The speaker wire is unterminated, allowing you to add your own optional connectors. The jacket features a stripe along one conductor to help you make the proper connections.

Design: Audioquest G2 speaker cable features Semi-Solid concentric packing. In conventional multi-strand speaker wire, strands can change position within the bundle. Electrical and magnetic interaction are compounded as each strand changes position, causing distortion. Audioquest's Semi-Solid concentric packing, the long-grain copper strands within the smaller, tighter concentric bundle do not change position, significantly reducing distortion.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I have heard from numerous sources that the AudioQuest speaker cables are the best right now, and my Crutchfield advisor, Dwight, specifically recommended the G2, to run from my new receiver to my front and center channel speakers. [ William  Sep 07, 2018 ]

I did a lot of research on the Definitive Technology system I was purchasing, and it did not make sense to pair 10 dollars of lamp cord from a box store with such a high-end investment. [ Jeremy  Aug 18, 2016 ]

Good quality & price. [ Larry  Feb 27, 2016 ]
I felt the price was fair. I trust AudioQuest products. The total footage will be perfect for my needs with some left over, and I think the white suits the environment better than the grey option. The marking to avoid mixing up your speaker connections is very helpful. [ JUSTIN  Jul 14, 2018 ]

I am not an expert, but I would think so. If you are going from a head unit to speakers, than you shouldn't be pushing a lot of wattage, and if you are going from an amp to speakers, as long as the distance is not too long (under 5 feet), then you should not need a heavy gauge cable. [ Fred  May 12, 2014 ]
Yes, i have it hooked up to a couple of subs using banana connectors while trying different hookup configurations. works just fine. little bulky for hiding under trim if your limited on room [ JOHN  May 10, 2014 ]
