If you want 12awg wire, look elsewhere. The jacket on this wire is huge, and the wire itself measures only about 0.05" on my calipers - almost exactly what 16awg wire measures. No wonder it's so cheap. My Stinger 12awg wire measures about 0.08" on my calipers.

That said, it's a decent deal even for 16-ga wire, just know that's what you'll be getting.

This is NOT 12 gauge wire. The insulation is nice and thick, and it appears (from the outside) to be 12 gauge, but once you strip the insulation and compare it to actual 12 gauge wire, you will see. What you're getting is closer to 14 or 16 gauge wire. Whether or not it's OFC remains to be seen.

While it may not be true 12 guage it works well and transfers signal perfectly. I was looking for some for my garage speakers so this is better than what was on them by far. I do have two 70s era SPX-7000 Sansui speakers which benifit from the thicker guage like this and for anything other than your big main speakers it will work fine unless you have huge speakers besides your main towers in your system. They fit nicely into my dimondback connectores and for even my monsters angled twist on connectors.

Really great wire. I used it to replace all of my stock wire in my install. it's nice and think, very good insulation. It's not the flashy, colored stuff, but for my install, 99% of the wire is hidden. And best of all, it sounds great. I would highly recomend, especially for the price.

Like other reviews, this "Wire" is Maybe a 14agw thickness, definitely not a 12agw as you guys are selling it, but for the price it is okay. But, if anyone is looking for a REAL 12agw, do not buy this. Look for a "Name" Brand.

I ordered this roll of 100feet 12 gauge wire when i got it in the mail and opened it up I notice that the wire is not really 12 gauge more like 16 gauge. the insulation is thick makes you think its 12 gauge. but its not.....I guess you get what you pay for. still a good price for even if the 12 gauge wire is really 16 gauge wire underneath the thick insulation

**NOTE from ADMIN: The Hitron speaker wire is not going to be true AWG wire. If you want true gauge wire, we recommend considering the Monster Cable, JL Audio, or Kicker speaker wire.

This wiring is super affordable, its a real value deal. It is super effective as a conductor for your speakers and it is often also the same wiring used for in-home speaker hookup.

If you are looking for some bragging rights this wiring is exactly there for the looks it is simply for the purpose of conducting electricity for speakers. The jacket is not circular it is more of a rounded rectangle.

Still using it in my car to hook my amplifier to my 2-12" Fosgate's this wiring gets the job done and has worn well.

For the price you get your money's worth.
This is perfect for car speakers and just need to use double the wire for subs.
Pros: Low price, Polarity marked, Clean look
Cons:
CCA (Misleading since it says 100% OFC)
Thinner than what is marketed

I would be ok to settle for a little thinner gauge wire is the price is right.
Look closer here.
Why does 100' of this only weights 3.5 lbs
50 feet of 12 ga NVX wire is 3.36 lbs
100 feet of 12 ga Street Wire 8 lbs
This make me wonder even if this is cooper wire and not aluminum wire.
Is 15 ga aluminum wire worth $16 bucks? yes, but know what you are getting 16 gauge wire weights the same as this stuff

If you're looking for some speaker wire for mids and highs look no farther. The wire itself isn't crazy beefy but its more than enough for mids and highs, I wouldn't go using it for subs or anything. For 16 bucks for 100 feet you simply cant beat it. I put all new speakers in my car and had tons left over. Plus its marked really well so its easy not to get the positives and negitives mixed up. Can't beat sonic's prices!
