    It's speaker wire

    This is speaker wire for connecting speakers to stuff. I mean really it is just speaker wire, it carries a small current to the speakers. When I used it to connect my speakers to my receiver, the speakers functioned exactly as expected. I could place these two speakers 25 feet away because I bought 50 feet of speaker wire. I apologize if you read this review and felt it was a waste of your time, but come on, it is speaker wire, it has one function, why would anyone research user reviews for speaker wire?

    Magnolia guy was fantastic with helping me pick out receiver and speakers and cables to hook the new stuff up to the tv. Sold me 18 awg wire for back channel surround speaker 50' away from receiver. Researched it after I got home and seems like I should of have gotten 16awg for that length. Because its surround sound probably any distortion minimal but probably would have preferred to spend a few bucks more for heavier wire. Sounds fine but not the same as other speaker wire in the rest of the system.

    When you need a longer run for your speakers

    With the general demise of Radio Shack, it is hard to find good speaker wire when you need to further the distance between your device and your wired speakers. This is a quality wire that seemed to be a little pricey, but in reality I haven't bought any for quite a few years. Overall, I am very satisfied.

    It's wire - It works

    I've had no problems with this wire at all. My only advice is, use proper wire strippers. I had to use my teeth on a quick installation job, (come on, admit it, we've all done it), and the insulation is just so elastic that it stretched more than I'm used to. Performance is flawless and the copper seems to be of good quality.

    Great wire for speakers that are cheap speakers

    Not crazy about the wire hype and will pay hundreds for wires. This definitely does the job dfor cheap or older speakers. However. I did change the wiring after buying my more expensive Klipsch speakers. There is no way that I would use regular wires without banana plugs for my more expensive speakers. Great for length and as mentioned earlier older speakers.

    Perfect for hooking up two speakers to my receiver

    To be honest, I had no idea how to use speaker wire. I figured when I bought the speakers I could just plug them into the receiver. But nope, and I had no idea how to connect them with just wire. But it turned out pretty easy and now my receiver delivers awesome sound and both my speakers are set up in perfect locations. This wire was the perfect length!

    After looking all over town for some Old school 18 gauge wire to connect my speakers to an A/V receiver. Wire is a standard 18 gauge as described, 50' length to enable a very versatile setup. Hum not sure what to do with the extra 40’ I didn’t need! Regardless it is nice to still find the speaker wire available!

    Unfortunately, this was the only speaker wire they had in stock... had to buy it. Got it home and the wire was britte and kept breaking. The plastic did not cut well and I had to use much more wire than I had initially intended.

    Exactly what i was looking for - no need to go to a specialised retailor. I moved to the USA last August and after buying a GPS at best Buy have not looked back. Customer service has been excellent across several different stores and have purchased 2 x GPS, 1 lap top, One Hi FI system , a Printer / Scanner ......the list goes on and on.

    Woke up one day and just had to move my left floor speaker to the other side of the room. Of coarse I headed to "BEST BUY". There was a more expensive choice but I like to save. My speakers are over 25 years old. "Liquid Cooled" which was the best than. The speaker wire had no ill affect the speaker sounded superb!

    Good wire, easily stripped and spliced. used it to complete my 5.1 speaker arrangement. Come to find out the sub woofer requires it's own power amp. Would be nice to see labels for connections defining Right Front, Left Front, Right Rear, Left Rear, Middle, Sub woofer, etc.

    Good, inexpensive speaker wire

    I've been using this speaker wire for my personal applications for a couple years now. It is what it appears: simple, inexpensive speaker wire. The positive/negative color coding on the insulation is clearly marked, and the insulation is plenty flexible and does not retain the coil from the packaging.

    Purchased for rear channel speakers in our media room theater set-up. Thin enough to be tucked cleanly & out of sight along baseboards for wireless presentation. Sound was on point when got everything laid out & operational. Rocketfish brand (BBuy's house label) works just fine. Completely satisfied.

    I used this product to extend the speaker wire on my home theater center and it works great. Good, thick insulation makes this a great addition as an extension or replacement for old wires that have magnetic interference due to them being close to high-output electronics like flat-screen TVs.

    The Insignia 50', 18 gauge speaker wire does a great job at powering up speakers! They also come with a marking to distinguish between positive and negative. And are reasonably priced. So let the music flow!

    Basic speaker wire and works as described. The two wire are easily separated for custom lengths and one wire has a white stripe to easily determine positive and negative connections, great price also!

    Was looking for a good and inexpensive wire for my system. I found this wire at a great price and just the length I needed. It is a quality wire for your system and clearly marked for polarity. This should last me for the rest of my lifetime! Great deal!

    It has good enough thicknes to provide low resistance to carry great sound to the speakers. It has little spool memory, so it unwound and lays flat, so it is easy to work with while installing. Do not have to keep undoing coils
