    This is *NOT* 12 gauge wire!

    Posted
    CorX

    As a warning to anyone who is legitimately wanting real, actual 12 gauge wire, this is not what you're seeking. It's easy to tell as soon as you open it that the conductors are obviously undersized. It's not even 14 gauge, the next size down. This wire is 15 gauge; yes, I said 15, and it does exist. So if you're like myself and are on the hunt for 12 gauge speaker wire (that really is an actual 12 gauge) then please, please heed my very sincere warning: This product is NOT 12 gauge and you will be disappointed. You're welcome.

    Exactly What I Needed

    I was able to find this gem of a product (at a good price too) at my local Best Buy. I was looking for new wire that would be able to accommodate my new sound system; something high quality, with durability. I tried this out and set up my system and everything sounded perfect. I know speaker wire is not the only component to a sound system that you have to worry about but if you're looking for something good to start a system with, then this is the product for you.

    I found my self in a pinch I needed some whir to complete an install I looked all a round and could not find any in my shop. I dropped by Best Buy to pick some up. Well they only had a smaller size then I was looking for how ever it would do. I found what they had was over priced as well!

    Exceptional Accessory

    Vital for connecting high-wattage drivers to power amplifiers. The bigger the wattage, the bigger the gauge you will need. Pushing 1.4kW to two DVCs using this very product.  The package contained just enough to wire the inside and outside of the subwoofer cabinet. Could provide a foot or two more for the price. Overall, an exceptional value.

    The wire quality is surprisingly good and the two wires are made of different material so it makes like easier to see which one is positive and negative. This wire can definitely handle any subwoofer you use it for.

    Bigger speaker wire have less resistance when high levels of wattage are passing through them. In my case I bought this speaker wire for my subwoofers, because there was warm air passing through the port. The new wires are keeping that part of the system cool.

    This speaker wire is great for higher wattage short length runs. I use it iny my home theater setup in combination with banana plugs as well as a subwoofer install in my vehicle. The shielding is a bit stiff but durable

    Exactly what I needed, most places only sold 25 feet. I found this product to be a better deal and didn't require me to buy more than I needed. The girl that helped me was very helpful

    Bought this speaker wire because my old sub blew, so I bought this just in case. Way more length than you need, but that's by design so you can cut off the excess you don't need. Is working great, Great bang for the buck.

    Wrong Gauge (this is 14 ga at best)

    playhardlivelife

    This wire is not even close to 12AWG. It is at best 14AWG. Decent 14AWG wire, but definitely not 12AWG as stated on packaging. Pretty bad that they would advertise it on the packaging as something that it is not.

    Bought this so that I could use my old laser printer with my new computer. The computer didn't have a serial port and this worked out great. The printer is up and running and I couldn't be more happy!

    I love this speaker wire, just the right thickness. My trunk packs alot of bass and I don't have any problems with cutting out or melting wires.

    Great speaker wire for anyone needing 12g. I used this to install a couple new front speakers in my Optima a few months ago and it's held up well. Great quality.

    No complaints. Easy to use when we did a self install of my husband's new speakers in his SUV. Wires work well and haven't been replaced yet.

    The sub woofer wire worked perfectly with my amp and subwoofer. It was easy to unpack cut and install. The length of the wire is great and always for multiple usages.

    This 12-gauge speaker wire worked great for hooking up my sub to the amplifier and there was plenty of wire to get the job done.

    Nice package size. I was able to get a little heavier guage speaker wire that's nice and flexible without having to buy way more than I needed.
