Selecting Your Speaker Wire

There are a few different properties that will affect the performance of your speaker. The most important measure is the resistance of the wire, which needs to be as low as possible. Low-resistance wire is better able to pull power from the source through the speaker wire, supporting more sound. You can find lower levels of resistance with thicker wires, which provide more space for the signal to move through and helps improve sound quality.

Other things to consider include:

  • Speaker impedance: Low-impedance speakers, such as those with 4 or 6 ohms, typically call for thicker speaker wire.
  • Wire length: Always remember that the distance where you want those cables to pass through has a great impact on the size of the wires. Longer distances will increase resistance, so you may need to compensate with thicker wires.
  • Connection types: If you’ll be connecting and disconnecting your wire, you’ll want to pay attention to the type of connector you use, which includes spade, pin and banana plugs. Pin connectors are straight or angled, spade plugs are u-shaped and offer a very tight connection, and banana plugs are straight with added width in the middle for a tighter fit. Check which type your speaker calls for before purchasing. You can also use bare wire, but many people prefer to use connectors for ease-of-use.
  • Installation knowledge: If you are not sure about the installation procedures that you should follow for your speaker wires, you should always consult the experts. Even though you might pay a small amount depending on the complexity of your installation, taking this step can improve safety, appearance and performance.

Speaker wire can be a contentious debate amongst audiophiles, so, while it’s not too hard to make it work well, if you’re after the best sound physically possible, you may want to do some more in-depth research to learn about the nuances of this kind of wire. You’ll also want to do some shopping around. Comparative reviews are very helpful in this kind of search. Various online stores may provide the same product but the only difference is the cost. Take care to identify these materials, so you can find the best possible price.

The internet provides a lot of useful information to help you develop a good home entertainment system, and speaker wires are an important part of that setup. They can help you enjoy first-class music and comprehensive audio from whatever you’re playing.
