    Very good service; easy to chat or get phone help. Unfortunately i goofed; missed some info on our cable; erred on my order. However every person i dealt with along the way was gracious & helpful. Even though the cable isn't an exact match i might go ahead & try it anyway.

    The speaker wire worked just fine. I had quite the experience hooking up my 6 speakers. It was delivered right on time and i had no problem picking it out. It is an excellent grade wire. I liked the price and have a lot left over if i ever get new or more speakers. Thank You so much for selling them to me. The price was just right and like i said i have a lot left over, for more hook up's. Thank You and sincerely your's keith sullivan.

What does 12/2 (or 14/2 or 14/4) mean?

This is standard nomenclature for differentiating speaker wire. The first number, 12 in this example, is the AWG or wire gauge of the cable. The second number, 2, is the number of conductors.

What is AWG?

AWG is the gauge size and denotes the thickness of the cable. The lower the gauge, the thicker the cable. AWG stands for "American Wire Gauge" and is a standardized wire gauge system used throughout the industry.

When would I use one gauge size of speaker wire over another?

The main consideration when choosing speaker wire should be the distance of the run. Longer runs require thicker conductor (lower AWG numbers) to make sure the signal does not degrade over the distance. On the other hand, a thicker conductor cable will be less flexible, more expensive, and potentially more difficult to terminate. Here are some rough guidelines:

Distance AWG
25 Feet or Less 18+
25-50 Feet 16
50-75 Feet 14
75 Feet or more 12 or less
