16 Gauge Speaker Wire

16 gauge speaker wire is used for a multitude of installations and applications. It’s used for speakers, audio components, security systems and much more. If you’re looking for the best 16 gauge speaker wire, you’ve come to the right place. Primus Cable provides many types of speaker wire, including direct burial 16 gauge speaker wire.

With subpar audio wire and cable in your system, you’ll notice a substantial decrease in performance. But with Primus Cable’s high quality products, your sound system will produce crystal clear sound while standing the test of time. Our 16 gauge speaker wire is made of high-purity, oxygen-free copper which maximizes conductivity and carries audio signals better. Each conductor is also color coded for polarity identification.

For easy installation or removal, the entire cable insulator is a white or black PVC jacket. The Speaker Wire, 16/2 Oxygen Free CMR, 500' – White is perfect for outdoor sound installations. Our 16 gauge speaker wire is CL3 and CMR rated for riser applications. It is comprised of two conductors made up of 65 strand pure copper. This 16 gauge speaker wire is also supplied in a pull box of 500 feet.

Purchase Considerations

Many factors go into purchasing the right speaker wire: gauge, distance, cable quality, strand count and purpose. Based on an 8 ohm output (most common), 16 AWG speaker wire should be ample enough for runs of up to 48 feet—perfect for a small home, office, dorm room, and car. If you’re concerned about a thin gauge wire and would like a thicker gauge, check out one of our lower gauge (larger diameter) wire.

However, we assure you 16-gauge is ideal for any small to medium audio job. A higher strand count adds to the total surface area of the cable, giving it more conductivity. If your project requires a larger number of conductors, Primus Cable offers the Speaker Wire, 16/4 Oxygen Free CMR, 500' – White.

This 16 gauge speaker wire is a 65 strand audio cable comprised of four copper conductors. The copper strands are made of pure, oxygen free copper, making it conduct signals clearer. This cable has a white PVC jacket and is suitable for riser applications.
