    Less $ per foot than Insignia, still fine quality

    I was going to purchase 50' of 18-gauge speaker wire by Insignia at my local Best Buy, then saw this 40' bundle for less money. The Insignia wire is kept in the home audio section, this wire is sold in the car stereo/speaker section and it is a penny or two less per foot. The Insignia brand does come wrapped around a metal spool and this wire is in a tight loop (pull from the center as you would from a ball of string -- not from the outside) so that might explain the price difference. However, that metal spool would have been something I had to recycle or dispose of once my project was finished so I'm glad I didn't pay more for something I didn't need. The wire is perfectly fine and may be made by the same manufacturer as the Insignia wire. Thanks for the options, Best Buy.

    What can you say about speaker wire? It's a decent quality wire for what I paid. Be careful with the wire strippers as it is easy to cut through the wires in the core. I can't really tell any difference in sound using this wire over the heavier gauge wire I was using before and it did not transfer any more white noise either. I would definitely buy this again.

    get's the job done

    I bought this wire to extend my home theater speakers as the "HT wiring" is expensive, and really it's just a wire. get's the job done, wire feels cheap, definitely not worth its price, or maybe wire prices have increased? I used to install car stereos and speakers, so I know it was cheaper before, at least for this quality. get it if you are in a rush and this is your only option, otherwise, find the cheapest price for the same gauge.

    My husband and I couldn't believe how quickly item was delivered. We ordered on Monday and got on Thursday! Putting the air conditioner together frustrated my hubby so just to let you know it needs to be set up with the air hose out a window or screen of the room you are cooling; It's not really super portable. Also noise level is pretty high for the bedroom but otherwise works great! THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    Horrible product

    Wish there was 0 star option, this wire was completely trash. After you use wire cutter to remove the safety plastic protecting the wire, most of the wires inside come off with the plastic. So your left to keep cutting away until some wires decide to stay in place. DO NOT BUY THIS, go else where for speaker wires.

    I use this wiring to replace all my stock wiring in my auto - because this is flexible while still handling the higher watts I put through them form my amplifiers. You could spend more, but why when this wiring holds it's own against the more expensive wiring. Unless you're showing your car at competitions you don't need anything else.

    The only thing i can say is it's the best speaker wire not only in the world but the galaxy! I've bought some junk speaker wire from other planets but the copper wire from earth tops them all! That imported stuff is no match! I'll never buy speaker wire from anywhere else! Best Buy is the place for me!

    I'm sure this wire will do the job. I probably shouldn't have bought it since the color is visible in the package. This wire looks more like house speaker wire and not for an automotive application.

    It's OK Speaker Cable...

    I have used many types of speaker cable, and I was in a pinch to finish a setup, so I grabbed some of this wire. It worked well for the job I was doing. For my own equipment I am typically using 12AWG or 14AWG, but this 16AWG will do in a pinch.

    I used this in a car stereo install. Replaced 4 OEM speakers with a component set, 6x9's, a modest 4x50 watt amp and new head unit. This wire was perfect for this application. My mom totally rocks out now with her new system!!

    I was a little hesitant to purchase a new MAC when I've been in love with my current MAC for so long. I def. did my diligence with reading reviews and asking around before purchasing but so far so good!!

    Inexpensive but just what I needed. Actually, it turned out that I didn't even need any cable but I kept this small roll anyway. It so far has been really clean with the sound and that's what it's all about!

    When you need some speaker wire. this is what you need. Plain old speaker wire. Does the same as the other wire. Just with out the cool colored insulation that you would normally get over charged for.

    This product is exactly as advertised. No unnecessary frills, just good speaker wire at a fair price. No need to overpay for the shiny stuff, it's a waste of money.
