So far so good to have hooked up my streo system for my computer with it even though it mention it works better for car's audio. Afterall, cooper is cooper and will still do the conductivity it has to do for speakers equipment. It was easy installation, no fuss to arrange the ends of the wires or to cut them at the right lenght. i am satisfied with this purchase. Not sure yet of the Monster's quality or brand name but i have no loss of sound so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for installing an amplifier in your car! Jan. 20 2012
By D. Sourile - Published on
Verified Purchase
I am going to make this short and sweet. I purchased this cable with the intention of wiring my car up with a new amplifier. I only used this cable to run wires FROM the amplifier TO the four door speakers in my car. I ran the wire from the amp (located under the passenger seat) to each of the four doors by routing it underneath the carpet, up the center pillars (rears) or dash (fronts), and through to the doors. This wire is thick and high-quality. I personally can't stand Monster brand products because they are way over-priced, but this one is a fair price and of good build quality. I used 49 out of 50 feet for my install - so it was perfect for my job! If you're installing an amp in the trunk, plan on buying more. Also, if you need wiring to get TO the amp from the stereo, plan on buying a second spool for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good wire with a very minor weakness May 27 2012
By F. S. MCMILLAN - Published on

Monster has been making wire for a long time; I've been using it on and off since 1993. They were more boutique then; more mainstream now, but this has helped them to offer a wider array of products at lower prices. Monster products can be found almost everywhere, and this typically hurts image and sales to enthusiasts like me. The good news is that Monster is big enough so they can make price point products for the masses while still offering cutting edge products for the enthusiast.

This speaker wire is by no means cutting edge, but it does have useful trickle down features that make it a high value solution. Much better than "zip" wire (twin conductor like lamp wire- the original speaker wire), the positive and negative leads are individually insulated, helix twisted, then encased in a clear PVC jacket. This results in an overall cable diameter of about 1/4-inch. The PVC outer jacket is smooth, making it easy to route and pull through the vehicle; I performed a full custom rewire of a medium sized SUV and had no difficulty in this area. The only downside to the outer jacket (and the reason I gave four stars) is that it has to be slit and trimmed back to expose the two inner conductors. This is a minor inconvenience compared to all the benefits the outer jacket provides (ease of install and additional protection), but you do have to be careful not to cut through the insulation of the inner wire or your finger (I slipped once and got my thumb pretty good- I found a good pair of cut-resistant gloves for day two of my install and will never work again without them!). As it turns out, I never did cut the inner jackets by mistake; I would say it is just as easy to make a bad cut on cheaper zip line. The outer PVC jacket is very tough but pliable; this renders the whole cable flexible enough to work with, but stiff enough to stay where you want it.

This is true 16-gauge wire and accepts blue (16-18 gauge) crimp-on connectors perfectly. Overall, a good quality, basic speaker cable- especially for the price. Recommended with a warning to be careful cutting the outer jacket, then highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome sound quality Feb. 2 2012

Installed this when I did a full stereo system in my truck instead of using the factory wire, which is way to small to push any kind of amplified signal through. This wire is 16 gauge and performs flawlessly! No complaints here. Will use this on my next install without hesitation

4.0 out of 5 stars Great cable Aug. 2 2013
By Steve Boatman - Published on

This cable is pretty big. It's twin spun cables inside a clear plastic sheath, so it's going to be stiff during install. You can't ask for better protection though, you have the protection of speaker cable itself, plus an added barrier of almost-unable-to-cut-without-razor-blade vinyl.

My only complaint is the overall diameter, makes it hard to run this cable beneath a flush panel. But it was of no concern for me, I just re-routed everything and cleaned it up nicer. I'll definitely use this again in either a home install, or even a vehicle install. 50 feet goes a long way unless you're running long lengths of cable from a 4-channel amp.

I actually used this on my subwoofer as well, just ran both strands together, and ran two lenghts of cable. I marked each one with black and red heat-shrink tube to mark which one is which. Looks nice. matches everything else coming out of my amplifiers, is strong, appealing, and I will never worry about cutting or wearing through.

3.0 out of 5 stars Middle of the Road Jan. 8 2013

Average product, has good and bad points

- True 16 gauge wires
- Color coded wires make it easy to tell positive from negative
- Outer sheath offers some additonal protection and helps when installing
- Twisted strands help prevent crosstalk

- This is not copper wire, it is aluminum. At $15 for 50 feet, that makes sense, but if you are looking for copper, look elsewhere
- The outer sheathing is difficult to strip without severing through to the inner wire. I tried a wide variety of wire stripping/cutting tools, and none of them worked well. The sheath is not perfectly round, so even ethernet-type cutters will either cut too deep on the wide sides, or not go through on the narrow sides. Slitting between the inner wires is difficult too, as they are twisted. Each end terminated took 2-3 tries to get the outer sheath off without screwing up the inner cable.

All in all, the sound quality seems decent enough. I don't know how much better it's going to get if I went to all OFC instead.
