Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Griff Exterior of one reel clipped with damaged insulation
What can I say, it's speaker wire. Get the 14 gauge at least as the 16 is silly thin at this length. One reel of this (I should have returned it, but instead I just cut around it) was damaged on the outside, nicking the insulation, and forcing me to cut it at that break-- annoying at the very least.
If you're a code freak, technically this isn't plenum cable so keep it out of your wall-- the plenum stuff, at least at my store, starts at 500 ft and it's $200+, so that was out for me. :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TFD VERY GOOD PRODUCT AT A GOOD PRICE
As a retired Broadcast Engineer, I guess I've bought tens of thousands of feet of wire & cable over the years so I definitely know the good and the bad. This is very good 14 ga speaker cable for surface installation. I would not recommend it for permanent in-wall installation as it's not rated for that purpose.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Captainsursea Good for other low voltage applications
14AWG wire is rated for 15 amps as specified in the US National Electrical Code which means you are allowed to use 80% of it's amperage rating, or 12 amps. [15 amps x 0.8 = 12 amps.] Since my particular application was for 12VDC, 1 Amp, I used this wire for installing a few low voltage LED ceiling lighting fixtures in my study. I installed a Leviton slide dimmer that uses 120AC into the LED AC to DC transformer using the transformer's wiring. From the 12VDC tap of the transformer I used the 14AWG stranded speaker wire directly to the LED light fixture. Total load on the 14AWG Stranded Speaker Wire is 12VDC/1 Amp. To insure "meeting code" all the wiring to the fixtures were routed in a PVC 1/2" tubing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Davkozy Its Wire
What can I say.....its wire. What could go wrong? Not too much to say other than trying to meet the minimum amount of characters required for this field.

Nice sized wired for a good price. Plastic jacket is easy to cut. Wires are color coded (silver and copper) for easy polarity. Used for a 9.2 in wall speaker setup.
