    Built for commercial and residential installations, our Professional Grade speaker cable is designed for pros who want to provide customers with the best quality audio and get the job done quickly and efficiently. Rated for both in-wall and direct burial use, this two-conductor high strand count copper cable provides excellent signal transfer for installations where background music is needed, and the 16-gauge thickness is ideal for shorter wire runs (under 50 ft) with 8-ohm speakers. The reinforced but flexible polypropylene jacket is UV resistant and protects the copper conductors from high heat and cold conditions as well as dirt, dust and other elements that can degrade cable integrity. Features that cater to demanding integrators include a reinforced box with an easy pull, snag-free design, and tissue-wrapped conductors for quick stripping. The extra sturdy box has a large payout hole, so cable runs are fast and smooth while the patented REELEX technology pulls coils from the inside out to prevent twists, knots, and tangles that can slow job progress. This sturdy audio speaker cable also includes two-foot increment printed markers so you can determine how much cable has been used and how much is left in the box, making long cable runs easier than ever.

    Jim • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM What gauge speaker wire do I need for a 50 in interior walls?
    Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
    Hi Jim, For a 50 foot run, you can use 16 gauge speaker wire. If you are getting close to 80 feet, that's when you would would to use 14 gauge. CS 3649
    jeff • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I know this is rated for direct burial, but is there any problem with running this wire in underground conduit?
    Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
    Hi Jeff: The speaker wire has no problem running in conduit versus direct burial. Typically the direct burial cable needs to be buried deeper than the conduit to avoid being accidentally cut. The conduit helps protect the wire from that as well. You will need to check the local regulations which covers the specifics on depths for both wire by itself or the conduit. So yes, no problem running in the conduit. TL/3832
