what gauge is best for outdoor speakers that the wire will be in the sunlight and on west facing wall
1 Answers
Hi Ron: All three gauges of our CL3/FT4 direct burial custom install cables feature a UV additive to the outer jacket so there is no problem being exposed to sunlight. And depending where you live in Oregon sunlight might not be a problem anyway. I know, I live in Lake Oswego myself. The rule of thumb when considering which gauge wire to use on runs up to 80 feet ; 16 gauge, 80 to 200 feet; 14 gauge and 200 feet and longer 12 gauge. Also if you are using a speaker selector or indoor volume control they typically work best with 16 gauge input/output. If you are running low frequency for a sub than 14 gauge up to 50 feet and 12 gauge beyond that. TL/4394

Will the wires corrode? I used a different brand of wire that claimed to be weatherproof, but it corrodes every season, and I have to cut it back about 3' to fine uncorroded wire.
1 Answers
Hi Devon: Are you terminating the wire with standard wire nuts or with something like our aqua blue wire nuts with silicon filler? I have not had any complaints regarding corrosion. And all tech emails and upload your plans come through me. TL/4132

You stock Monoprice 104045 100 ft 18AWG CL2 Rated 2-Conductor Oxygen Free Pure Bare Copper Speaker Wire Cable, I wanted to ask if this was suitable for outdoor use and UV safe, also what is the main difference with 12/14/18AWG thickness?
1 Answers
Hi Mike: We do not stock Monoprice cables. They are another Brand not associated with our OSD brand. But all of our OSD Branded speaker cable are CL3/FT4 rated certified for all residential in-wall/in-ceiling installations and most commercial applications except running the wire in heating and cooling ducts (that would require Plenum rated). All of our jackets are thicker and are UV treated so they can be used as direct burial. Regarding the gauges of the speaker wire a general rule is 0 to 80 feet use 16 gauge, for 80 to 150 ft use 14 gauge wire and 150 feet and beyond 12 gauge. Good luck TL/3769

do you have 300 foot roll, or waterproof connectors for underground ?
1 Answers
Hi Robb, If you order 3 of the 100ft rolls, it will come as a roll of 300ft. The same would go if you order 1 250ft and 1 50ft. We do have the KI-Blue6 Aqua Blue Direct Burial Waterproof Speaker Wire Connectors. CS 3267

What is the difference between a 14 gauge and 16 gauge wire. i would like too know what wire is best for outdoor speakers
1 Answers
Hi Dave, The larger the gauge of the speaker cable, the longer the run can be. However, gauge ratings can be confusing. Smaller gauge numbers equate to larger sizes; therefore, for up to 80 feet, you can use 16-gauge cable. For runs longer than that, consider the 14 gauge to ensure that volume capability and sound quality are not degraded. CL/MA 1820

What is the difference between a 14 gauge and 12 gauge
1 Answers
Hi Kathy, Longer wire runs require thicker the cable, and the 12-gauge speaker cable is the thicker of the two. If your longest run is over 100ft, go with the 12-gauge speaker cable. CL/MA 1528

14 Gauge, buriable speaker cable
Have buried total of 300 ft. of your speaker cable...appears to be good quality, fair price. Speakers are working well around pool patio. Am hoping this is a good long-term solution. My wife and I both like the rock speakers that these cables serve.
ProsFlexibility of the cable for burying application.

Very satisfied. Great sound transmission.
I used all 100 feet (2 speakers) and the sound from my outdoor speakers is even better than I had expected. The wire blends in well where exposed and I expect it to hold up to the elements (shoreline) well. It was also surprisingly easy to work with (stripping, threading through walls, etc.).

Great Cables
The cabling that I got works great and was easy to pull on runs but be careful when ordering as I specified and PAID for not one cut 0ff 200ft bunch of rolled up cable stuffed into a UPS small package box, but 2 100ft SEPARATE boxes of the same cable. It made my life harder and if I knew that that was what they would send me, I would have paid $40.00 more for the 500ft box and cut it myself. I feel as if I was bait and switched, as that WAS NOT what I ordered. I needed the cables for jobs and had no time to deal with returning it or I would have. Buyer Beware!

Best Quality for a good price
I wanted to bury speaker wire underground in order to place 2 sets of outdoor speakers in my backyard. So I went to the big box store to buy outdoor speaker wire. They didn't have what I needed on hand at the store but, suggest I try their web site as an option. So I did. The product they offered was $150 more than OSD. Before finding OSD I was willing to down-grade to save $$. Now I have what I need for a fraction of the price. And the music sound great. You don't need to spend a fortune for good quality at OSD.
ProsGreat prices, Fast shipping
ConsYou have to wait on shipping

Added On
Added 2 more speakers after years of trouble free music in my backyard. Although I didn't have to bury my cable, I ran it under my deck and through heavy landscaping with no problem besides a few scrathches along the way.
