Manufactured with the highest-grade materials in the industry, our 12 gauge CCA wires deliver the best of the copper and aluminium worlds. Our 21 Gauge CCA wires are perfectly crafted to the highest safety and durability standard, so you can enjoy similar performance to a copper wire at only a fraction of the cost!
12 Gauge Wire is ideal for long wire runs and can carry up to 20 amps of power. You can also use it for low impedance speakers and high-power applications. You can’t go wrong with a 12 gauge wire for speakers,electrical outlets, appliances, laundry and bathroom circuits, in your kitchen and outdoor receptacle, and 120-volt ACs that support 20 amps
Speaker wires with a gauge between 12 to 16 are found to be effective to connect speakers with an amplifier or an Audio/Video (A/V) receiver. They can be comfortably used for long-distance connections like 80-feet with speakers having a resistance of 4 or 6 ohms. If the speaker happens to have a larger resistance like 8ohm, 16 gauge wires are most commonly used. The higher the gauge, the thinner it gets and the more resistance it would offer to the current flow. So, 12 gauge speaker wires are highly recommended.
Speaker wires do not age with time. If you’re taking good care of speaker wires, they can last for years without causing any disruption in the service. However, if the copper wires are exposed to the air, they are likely to suffer from oxidation. Even in that case, you can remove that oxidized part and use the remaining speaker wire. As commercial speakers have evolved, so is the quality of the copper wires. Long story short, the 12 gauge speaker wires have a long lifespan than you presume.
CCA is Copper Clad Aluminium, an electric conductor with an outer sleeve of copper metallurgically bonded to a solid aluminium core, making it uniquely suited to various applications. Our CCA wire is lighter and more flexible than copper wires while being as good as pure copper when it comes to corrosion resistance and signal frequency without the additional cost.
AWG is American Wire Gauge, which denotes the diameter of wire without its insulation. Quite counterintuitively, thicker conductors have lower AWG ratings, so 12 gauge electrical wire is bigger than 18 gauge wire. AWG is developed in the US, and it ensures you get the wire spec you ordered, unlike other ambiguous rating systems
