What is speaker wire?
Speaker wire is a commercially available type of flexible wire used to connect loudspeakers to amplifiers, stereos, or audio video (AV) receivers, either in home stereo systems or vehicle audio. Speaker wire is very similar to other types of multi-conductor (stranded) wire along with a design and insulation material (often vinyl, PVC, or others) that make it well-suited for bending and being installed more easily.
Traditionally speaker wire was made using pure copper wire, although due to the rising cost of copper clad aluminum (CCA) wire is becoming more common. Speaker wire typically has one or more indicators, such as a strip or molded symbols or markers, to indicate one wire conductor as a polarity in order to make proper connections clear.
