OSD outdoor speaker cable is priced significantly lower than other brands and performs just as well if not better. This 4-conductor oxygen-free cable can be used for outdoor rock, patio, or garden speakers, or for low voltage outdoor lighting. The cable features a specially formulated white polyethylene jacket that is U/V resistant and provides protection against water damage. The audiophile grade wire contains 99.9% pure copper conductors with a high strand count for excellent performance.

can i use this wire to install LED warning lights on my snow plow truck ? they are selling Current: .9 Amps MAX, .7 Amps AVG @ 12.8 Volts
1 Answer
Hi RP:

They use salt on the roads in the winter in Upstate (and you did mention your snow plow). I would recommend going to the auto parts store and ask them what they would recommend. I lived near Syracuse for four years and even married a girl from there.

Can I use this one cable to wire one 2 channel speaker? The speaker is a TIC GS4 8”.
1 Answer
Hi Marc:

The TIC GS4 8" is a Dual Voice coil single summed Mono Stereo (Full range), Speaker. It features two inputs left and right stereo input (+/-). The four conductor features four different colors coded jackets. Red, Black, White, and Green. Typically to be consistent we use red for right Positive, Black for Right Negative, White for Left Positive and Green for Left Negative. The TIC Owners manual shows a four conductor connection as well.

Will this cable work on intercom speaker from the house to my gate about 800ft ?
1 Answer
Hi Richard.: It depends on your intercom system. Can you tell me the Brand and model number. I believe if it is a 70V system you have no problem running 800 feet with 16 gauge. TL/4703

My intention is to run 16 Gauge 4-conductor CL2/3 cable from my receiver (in my garage) down to my basement and near an exterior wall. As some point I will split that run into two 16 Gauge 2-conductor CL2/3 cables (this will occur indoors). I will then run the two 2 conductor cables through existing wall penetrations and will connect them to my RS690s ohn the patio. 1. Do you see an issue with this? 2. Can I run the 4-conductor cable alongside some electrical cable? Or should there be a distance b/t the two.
1 Answer
Hi Chris: There should be no problem running and splitting the four conductor cables even if you did outside (where we would recommend using our Aqua Blue terminator caps filled with silicon). It always a good idea to steer clear of placing any cables near power lines. TL/4520

Do you have a shielded version of this cable?
1 Answer
Hi Andy: I do not believe we stock a shielded CL3/FT4 rated speaker wire. All of our Speaker Wires feature twisted pairs internally but no additional shielding. What is your application that you need shielded cables? TL/3942

I'm looking for outdoor speaker cable that I can run out to my fire pit in the back yard. This looks great, but it's only available in white. Once I get to the buried cable to the location, I need to run it up a few trees to my speakers, but I don't want the white cable to show so obviously! Isn't this available in black?
1 Answer
Hi Eric, Unfortunately we only carry speaker wire in white!

There is 4 wires inside the uv sleeve. Does this mean I can connect 2 speakers with one length of wire?
1 Answer
Hi Jeff, This wire should be used to connect amps to speaker selectors, volume controls or even dual tweeter speakers. I would advise against using it with two speakers though, because you would be removing the protective jacket. It's best to go with 2 conductor for speaker pairs. Thanks. -BM 2188

Are the individual wires twisted and if so what is the twist rate per foot?
1 Answer
Hi Bryan: There are four internal conductors in individual jackets color coded red, black, white and green. Each of the four conductors feature 25 strands of copper versus 65 strands for our step up High Strand Ultra Series wire. The four conductors are twisted roughly 3 to 5 times per foot on this our Elite Series and 6 to 8 times on our high strand count Ultra Series. The higher strand counts tends to be a bit more flexible and has about a 10% increase in current flow. TL

does direct burial mean you dont need a conduit, also is it recommended to use a conduit to bury the wire
1 Answer
Hi Silas: The cable can be buried without using conduit. The key is using our Direct Burial rated Aqua Blue terminating connectors featuring internal silicone when terminating the cables to the Rock or Garden Speaker. TL

Can this be used in wall?
1 Answer
Hi Charlie: This cable features a CL-3 Rated jacket approved for in-wall installation. The CL-3 means it is approved for both Residential and Commercial applications. The only limitation is running the cable in a Heating or Air Duct. The CL-3 means that it the jacket will not burn and spread a fire inside the wall (it melts first). It does not give off toxic fumes like a non CL rated cable. TL/MA
