How to Choose the Best Speaker Wires

by | Jun 14, 2016 | Business

Whether you’re at your desk or on the road, the right sounds can get you in the right mood. Whether it’s heart-pumping rock and roll during a particularly brutal traffic snag, or jazz for a lazy Sunday afternoon, music can make any situation a whole lot better. That is, until you hear the sound coming out from your speakers. If it’s tinny and just about the furthest thing from great, then you have your work cut out for you.

Wire Troubles

One of the problems could be your speaker wire. If your cables already show signs of stress, or if it’s been with you for years of constant use, then this issue might be a long time in the making. The best thing you can do is to opt for a replacement. Getting your hands on the best speaker wires can be easy. Just make sure to consider the following:

  • Length and gauge. Gauge runs from 10 to 18, with lower numbers corresponding to thicker wires. If you want better signal flow, the larger the wire, the better the signal possible. Length matters too. You wouldn’t want to stand too close to your amplifier or speakers.

  • Material. Copper remains one of the best wire materials out there. Highly conductive and resistant to corrosion and creeping. And while some might use silver, that can jack up the price. Silver might also have impurities that could end up compromising your audio system over time. With copper, you get functionality and affordability in one package so it’s the go-to choice of a lot of audiophiles who want value for their money.

  • Quality. Capacitance and inductance affect the sonics, or sound quality, of your cables. So pay attention to those numbers as well.

So don’t let bad wires get the best of your audio experience. Consult EWCS for help.
