12 Gauge Speaker Cables
12 Gauge Speaker Cables
When it comes to choosing speaker cables, gauge, length and connection type are three factors that you should take into consideration. Gauge (thickness) is determined by an AWG (American Wire Gauge) number - typically 12, 14, 16 or 18. The lower the number, the thicker the cable... which means that 12 gauge speaker cables are often preferred for high power applications and long wire runs (25 feet or more). With that being said, you'll find in this catalog that 12 gauge speaker cables are available in lengths ranging from 3 to 50 feet. In fact, companies like Live Wire, Musician's Friend and Rapco Horizon all have 12 gauge speaker cable options here.
12 gauge speaker cables are often used by guitarists who use cabinets and heads, and the Musician's Gear 12-Gauge 1/4" - 1/4" Speaker Cable is a top seller. This cable features a rubber-insulated exterior and gold-plated tips on the 1/4" jacks for minimal noise and top-notch durability. Another popular cable with 1/4" ends is the Rapco Horizon Speaker Cable. Available in your choice of 20, 30, 50 and 100 feet, this hand-soldered, heavy-duty round cable is built to the highest standards to ensure it holds up through countless gigs and studio sessions.
Speakon-to-speakon connections are also commonly found in the 12-gauge style and the Monster Cable Performer 600 Speakon Cable 6 Ft. is perfect for connecting amps to loud speaker systems. Using an advanced cable construction technique to deliver a wider dynamic range and deeper bass, this cable's clarity and accuracy is everything you'd expect from a brand that has a sterling reputation. For that matter, the same can be said for the Live Wire Elite 12-Gauge Speakon-Speakon 2-Pole Speaker Cable. The superior wiring of this cable eliminates hums and buzzes while its flexible design reduces kinks and twists for a tangle-free performance.
