I bought some off of fasfocus00 on here. Not sure what your intentions are, but it will work for me. I just wanted something with a strong enough jacket. That wire will stand up

NOt sure what you're gonna pay but I got 135 feet for a great price from fasfocus00

It's wire. Wire is wire.

Not always.

Any "name brand" wire will be good. Knukonceptz, Kicker, Monster... even most non-brand name wire is good. Especially speaker wire. It's not really that important unless you're running an EQ comp set-up.

The brand of wire starts to get important around 8- AWG where different brands will put in less wire and call it a smaller AWG. (Of course, remembering the smaller the gauge the bigger the wire)

Audiopipe skimps on wire.... if you need 16 gauge I would buy 14 gauge because you will end up with 16 gauge even though it says 14 gauge on it.

Actually, now that I think about it, my 16 AWG Monster cable was mostly jacket with little wire. I don't really remember it. But, I can't complain. It was free.99 :fyi:

I think Monster Cable is pretty good about giving you what you pay for. There are a lot of companies that don't have the strand count they should.

Proof? The AudioPipe wire that I have is exactly the same size as the same gauge Rockford and Stinger wire that I have.

BS. Wire is wire. What magical properties are imparted on copper by these companies that charge a ton of money for wire that affect the measurable values of wire (resistance, inductance and capacitance) in a way even approaching audibility?
