    As a human with some knowledge of physics and electricity, I feel I must debunk something here. This IS copper-clad aluminum speaker wire. If you've been on Audiokarma, you've probably read that CCA wire is an affront to your ears. There's no evidence for this. Instead, consider the following:The amount of current a wire can carry is related to its cross-sectional surface area and its resistance. Aluminum wire is more resistive than copper, requiring ~1.5x the cross-sectional surface area to carry the same current as an equivalent copper wire. 12 gauge wire has a cross-sectional surface area of 3310 mm^2 while 14 gauge wire has a cross sectional surface area of 2080 mm^2.The long and short of it: 12 gauge CCA perform equivalently to -- and maybe a little better than -- 14 gauge oxygen-free copper wire. I couldn't find a 100' spool of 14 gauge oxygen-free copper for less than $ on the internet, so this stuff saves you $ on that. Spend the extra money on beer.

    Sound quality ended up being good. The wire is very difficult to split down the middle though. If you need to split positive from negative in long pieces, as I did, you will end up wasting a lot of wire. I had a 6-speaker series/parallel configuration to deal with. If you have a very basic set up, you shouldn't run into this problem.

          Comments about Pyramid High Quality 12 Gauge Speaker Zip Wire (100' Spool):

          I purchased this 12 gauge wire to replace older 24 gauge speaker wiring for my home theater system.
          The sound is much better, and the exterior plastic coating is much more flexible than what I was using previously.
          The price of this 100' spool was lower from B&H than a 100' spool of smaller gauge wiring at the other large electronics box stores.
          An excellent buy!

                  For the price, I wasnt sure of what i was going to get but at 12 gauge it was at least 3 times the girth of the cables that came with my Home theater system and since i was running the surrounds almost 40feet from the receiver this was needful. Splicing was a breeze and one side of the cable is colored which helps.

                  In 2nd semester physics, we all learned about resistance in a DC circuit: V=IR. Well this wire will lower the resistance from your amp to your speakers. I will buy more of this wire. Buy the 100 foot roll; it is a bargin.

                                      Sound quality ended up being good. The wire is very difficult to split down the middle though. If you need to split positive from negative in long pieces, as I did, you will end up wasting a lot of wire. I had a 6-speaker series/parallel configuration to deal with. If you have a very basic set up, you shouldn't run into this problem.

                                            Comments about Pyramid High Quality 12 Gauge Speaker Zip Wire (100' Spool):

                                            Hooked it up to the speakers and they worked!
                                            Nice red line on wire to decipher each side of wire.
