Speaker Wire is used for A/V receivers, speakers, amplifiers, and many other wired resources to provide electrical connection. for paging or commercial sound systems. Our high quality speaker wires can be used for small or big gauge type of installation. The best speaker wire for paging system are 2 or 4 conductor type in a shielded jacket 18 or 16 gauge. The shielded jacket protects the wire conductors from receiving electrical interference from other electrical equipment of even florescent lighting. Local laws may specify that the cable be low smoke Plenum cable. Shielded Plenum cable should be used in areas where people are located such as office areas or classrooms.
Choosing the right speaker wire involves several factors to ensure that you get the best performance from your audio equipment. Here are some guidelines to help you select the appropriate speaker wire:
1. Gauge (AWG): The thickness of the wire is represented by its gauge. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire. Thicker wires (lower AWG) can carry more current and can support longer runs without significant signal loss. For most home theater or stereo systems, 16 or 14 gauge wire is sufficient. For longer runs or for high-powered systems, 12 or even 10 gauge might be necessary.
2. Length: The length of the wire affects the amount of resistance the signal must overcome. The longer the wire, the higher the resistance, and the larger the gauge you will need to minimize signal loss.
3. Impedance: Your speaker's impedance (measured in ohms) should match the output impedance of your amplifier. Most home speakers are 8 ohms, and most home amplifiers are designed to handle that load. If your speakers have lower impedance, consider a thicker wire to ensure that the amplifier can deliver the necessary current without overheating. Comercial Sound Horns and Speakers are usually 70V or 25V.
4. Resistance: Look for speaker wire with low resistance. Resistance can cause signal loss, so a lower resistance means more of the amplifier's power will be used to drive the speakers rather than overcome the wire's resistance.
5. Material: Copper is the most common material for speaker wire due to its low resistance and relatively low cost. Oxygen-free copper is often touted for its purity and better performance but comes at a higher price.
6. Connectivity: Ensure that the wire you choose can be easily connected to your speakers and amplifier. Some high-end wires come with pre-attached connectors, while others may require you to attach your own.
7. Environment .If you are running wire in walls, make sure it is CL2 or CL3 rated for in-wall use. For outdoor speakers, look for wire that is rated for outdoor use with UV protection and waterproofing.
