Ensure top-quality sound reproduction with this 50-foot AudioQuest SLiP speaker cable. Its semi-solid conductors provide smoother audio, and the copper core reduces distortion for a more authentic result.
Long-Grain Copper construction
Helps eliminate harshness and enhance signal clarity.
PVC jacket material
Protects the interior cable and components from dust, moisture and breakages.
I was so happy to find this. It’s rated for through wall use as well as direct burial in ground (without the use of conduit or sleeve). I got 4 rolls and used one used 1 each to wire 4 outdoor speakers and haven’t had any issues so far, and we’ve had a handful of very heavy rains since I installed. I will use left over lengths that are long enough to wire indoor surround speakers because it is such high quality and slippery enough to snake through walls and joists with ease.
A:AnswerThere are four SLiP models: 16/2, 16/4, 14/2 and 14/4.
16/2 is 2 x 16 awg conductors, 16/4 is 4 x 16 awg or 2 x 13 conductors; 14/2 is 2 x 14 awg conductors and 14/4 is 4 x 14 awg or 2 x 11 conductors.
The SLiP cables are not shielded.
A:AnswerIt depends which model you have. SLiP 16/2 uses 2 x 16 awg conductors, so it's a 16 awg cable; SLiP 14/2 uses 2 x 14 awg conductors, so it's a 14 awg cable.
SLiP 16/4 uses 4 x 16 awg conductors. If you double up the conductors (as you should if your speaker cannot be biwired) it's a 13 awg cable; SLiP 14/4 uses 4 x 14 awg conductors. If you double up the conductors (as you should if your speaker cannot be biwired) it's an 11 awg cable;
