        Comments about Megacable® 50-Ft. 14-Gauge Flat Megacable® Wire (Clear):

        I'd give this product a 4.5 if I could. It's not perfect, but very good. I wanted some regular 14 ga. cable, but the flat type was all my store had.

        I was using some short (6 ft.) runs of this cable with great results on my 2-channel audio rig. But when I rearranged equipment, I needed longer cables. I made a new 10 ft. pair using another brand of 16 ga. 99% Cu cable. Now, 16 ga. should be adequate for such a short run, yet I noticed that the sound was lacking, especially in the bass frequencies. I picked up another roll of 14-Gauge Flat Megacable and made another pair of 10 footers. Wow! The difference was amazing. I replaced all my cable with the Megacable, and I'm really pleased with the sound.

        This cable is hard to strip, but it can be done if you take your time. I 'nip' each edge of the flat insulation, then gently cut into the flat sides with the cutter on my wire stripper. By pulling the end with the jaws of the stripper, I check to make sure I've cut through both sides of the insulation. If not, I gently cut a bit deeper until I can easily pull the end off.

          Comments about Megacable® 50-Ft. 14-Gauge Flat Megacable® Wire (Clear):

          USE: 3 rolls for a 7.1 retrofit

          Great: Price, looks, can be folded axially

          Not Great: Stripping is impossible without conductor damage which diminishes wires capacity for current.

                This flat-14 cable actually tests out very close to 12 gauge as far as resistance per 100 ft. and the extra separation between wires compared to "zip" wire should result in lower capacitive coupling. I've used this for years and am very happy

                I mainly wanted these for my front speakers and ended up using them on the Center channel as well. I wished they came in 30' lengths because thats all I need. I like the Braided design that the wire uses. my only gripe is that The wires aren't clearly marked for polarity.

                    The Monster XP cable I was using started to turn green at both ends. I believe it was 16 AWG cable but it had a non-conducting center. This cable has been in use for maybe 1/3 of the time but shows signs of aging or turning green, I'm getting more because I just moved. The flat 14 AWG works great!
