I have a roll of 14 gauge speaker in my garage and I do not know if I can use it or buy another roll of 16 gauge speaker wire. When an amplifier supplies an audio signal with a given voltage output, speakers with a lower impedance draw more electrical current (higher amps) than higher impedance speakers. This can make a difference in the wire size you need based on the length and power carried to audio speakers.Power, current, voltage, are critical for calculating wire size we need for any type of electrical load – including the speaker Ohms load. This is one reason why power companies can use high-voltage power lines to distribute thousands of Watts using smaller wire gauge while reducing wire cost power losses over long distances. A tape measure works well and so does string or rope you can place along the path where the wire will go.

I’m sorry to see that for some reason you feel like it’s incorrect. It’s not wrong and certainly not misleading; I’ve gone to great lengths to make it more accurate and practical than other wire size guidelines out there based on hard data. Both copper wire and copper clad aluminum (CCA) wire charts are provided. Because aluminum has a lower conductivity than copper (higher resistance per foot), the length will be shorter than for real copper.

Using the amperage from (2.), calculate losses across 4 meters of 16AWG stranded wire at maximum power (maximum current): A 14 AWG wire has a diameter of 1.62814mm, translating to a cross-section area of 2.08mm2. The cable grants you a maximum of 32 amperes for chassis wiring and 5.9 maximum amperes for power transmission. Lastly, the breaking force for 14 gauge copper wire is 119 lbs. First things first, the speaker cable’s size can heavily impact the quality and volume of sound. This article will explore the factors considered when choosing speaker cables and give you an in-depth understanding of the 14 AWG vs 16 AWG speaker wires. What’s AWG?
Overwriting your speakers may lead to melted wires or even burning the wire inside the speaker. And lastly, if you have a warranty, always follow the warranty guidelines stated by the manufacturer. The chart and tables above are handy if you aren’t sure about your stereo or amplifier power. You can estimate the length of wire you can use without losing a lot of power (at maximum stereo or amplifier output) knowing only the speaker Ohm rating.
