    Comments about 100ft 12 AWG Velocity™ Bulk Speaker Wire:

    I picked up a roll of this when I worked at an I.T. firm that dealt with a C2G distributor. I didn't want to shell out a bunch of money for speaker wire; I hate going into audio shops for just that reason - anyone who does their research knows that wire is wire. I'm not paying for exotic claims and salesman commissions. That said, I wasn't going to completely cheap out, especially not on the gauge of the wire. I'm running reasonably priced outboard amps, equipment, and speakers; mostly purchased internet direct due to my stated aversion to audio shops. I did my homework though, and have spent a decent amount on great bang-for-buck gear, so that factored in a bit. Given the price I couldn't pass this speaker wire up - but beyond that it is the gauge I needed, it looks like an attractive, nice heavy cable with a healthy amount of insulating material, and is completely 'snake oil' free.

    The looks of the cable itself factored in slightly, since I couldn't use in-wall wire for my theater room in the basement - it was newly finished before we moved in, and all are outside walls. I didn't want to tackle in-wall runs. So I picked up this with the intent to lay three runs around one side of the room from front to back. Installation was easy enough, the cable lays nice and flat and its radius in corners is perfect. 100ft was actually exactly the length I needed for my front three speakers. Longest run was no more than 45 feet, which is perfect as it is recommended to keep a run around 60ft or so with 12AWG wire for 8ohm speakers.

    My only quibble with this cable is that the insulation is a multi-stranded cotton-type material (not sure exactly what it is) and that it is hard to terminate cleanly. For a better look, I used heat shrink tubing from the main cable to the smaller internal cables, and from the smaller cables to the banana plugs. It looks quite high-end now. The nice thing is the room is dark enough and the cables are a nice flat finish, so you never see them unless they are pointed out with the lights up, and if you do, they look great.

    Sound is as expected, nothing introduced into the signal, no noise or hums or anything that could be attributed to the wire itself. I won't comment that it "sounds great!" as wire doesn't produce or alter sound, it merely carries a signal. If it does that right, then no complaints.

    Overall the speaker cables in my theater room appear just like high-end heavy audiophile cables but without the high price tag, and zero snake oil claims. Wire is wire! Great value overall.

    Comments about 50ft 12 AWG Velocity™ Bulk Speaker Wire:

    I used this speaker wire with my old ADS L810 and Bose 301 speakers, connected to a Pioneer analog receiver/amp putting out 200 Watts RMS per channel. The Pioneer allows three sets of paired speakers, so I have 20' of the wire left to hook up the last pair of speakers. Longest run is 10' through the walls, and other pair is closer. Excellent speaker wire but difficult to work with due to stiffness; it took some time to strip outside vinyl and inside wire,but I'd do it again as this is good stuff and the wire shouldn't ever degrade with the excellent covering (and easy color identification inside). I can tell the difference in the sound from the 30-year old speaker wire (10 gauge) it replaced with the new 14 gauge wire. The excellent screw-on banana plug connectors made the connections easy and more secure (although the paired set was too long to fit in my speakers). Product came quickly. However, wish I could have checked shipping information upfront to realize that they would charge State of TN tax.

              A:

              Resistance is 5.223 Ohm/Km. This speaker wire does not have a capacitance because it doesn’t contain foamed insulation.
