Get our Speaker Wire with Cheaper, Stronger, and Faster from PrimeCables!

Cheap high quality speaker wire in Canada is a specialty for PrimeCables. Throughout the past couple decades, speaker wire has become the go-to method for connecting loud surround sound speakers and amplifiers. To audiophiles and home theater enthusiasts, the benefits of speaker wire are well understood. In this space, it is considered one of the best cable types to use which is in large part what got us so interested in it. For the lowest prices on speaker wire in Canada, we’re proud to say that no one comes close to PrimeCables.


Speaker wire is a tremendously diverse way of hooking up a speaker system for the home. Refined from a wire system originally developed in the 1920s, speaker wire comes in a range of price, quality, aesthetic, and convenience. Beyond the obvious benefit of paying less for it, PrimeCables has worked with our manufacturers and suppliers to prioritize quality as well. After all, there’s no need paying less for speaker wire if what you’re receiving is a low quality version. When you shop with PrimeCables, know that you will receive a high performance, conveniently packaged, and affordable speaker wire that you can manipulate to your home theater surroundings.


Browse home theater speaker wire from PrimeCables today and choose from the 100ft Speaker Wire 14AWG Enhanced Loud Oxygen-Free Copper Cable – PrimeCables® for $24.99, the 100ft Speaker Wire 14AWG CL2 Rated 2-Conductor Cable (For In-Wall Installation) – PrimeCables® for $34.99, the 50ft Speaker Wire 16AWG Enhanced Loud Oxygen-Free Copper Cable – PrimeCables® for $12.99, the 50ft Speaker Wire 12AWG Enhanced Loud Oxygen-Free Copper Cable – PrimeCables® for $19.99, and the Speaker Wire 12AWG CL2 Rated 2-Conductor Loud Cable(For In-Wall Installation)-4 lengths-Monoprice – 50Ft for $31.99.


Though speaker wire comes in many different specifications, something we recommend Canadian home theater enthusiasts to pay attention to moreso than others is resistance. A low-resistance speaker wire will provide more energy and power. Thereby, the shorter the length, the more optimized the performance. The longer it is, the more one may lose power over extended distances. This is why for many of our commercial clients using speaker wire across large buildings, they will commonly employ interconnected speakers and amplifiers, and possible a constant voltage speaker system to help.


Speaker comes strong and for cheap at PrimeCables. As if we haven’t given you enough of a reason to shop with us, consider we offer free returns, a 1-year product guarantee, and fast, free shipping to anywhere in Canada on orders above $49.

The Best Way to mount rear Surround Sound Speakers for Home Theater Systems

Spending thousands of dollars on state of the art home theater equipment does not necessarily guarantee an aesthetically beautiful and immersive experience. If you don’t know how to maximize what you got and ensure all components are properly coordinated, even the most expensive of home theater systems can fall flat.

If you have rear channel surround sound speakers, what we recommend is getting them up off the floor and mounted. There are many advantages to having mounted rear surround sound speakers.  There’s no chance you’ll accidentally knock them over getting popcorn, it’ll look great, and best of all, you’re optimizing the way your ears catch the sound.


Every Canadian household should be mounting their rear surround sound speakers for maximum effect. Though the sound that comes through your speakers will be more or less the same, you’ll notice a big difference in your home theater’s appearance and the functional layout of the room. All you need to mount your rear surround sound speakers are the appropriate mounts and mounting hardware, a stud finger, and cordless drill. If the intention is to also install new cables, a wire stripper and cutter may also be required. If you’ve ever mounted shelves before, it’s pretty much the same task.


After you’ve chosen your surround sound speaker mounts and know the location of where you want to install them, use a stud finder to ensure there are no electrical conduits, pipes, or other hazards you could drill into. From there, drill a hole into the wall, clean out the holes, and then, insert the appropriate wall anchors. From there, the process should be pretty straightforward. We recommend examining the installation instructions for further information on how to proceed.


If you’re not sure where to find the perfect set of rear speaker mounts, there are a few dozen options to browse with PrimeCables, including the Universal Sound Bar Speaker Bracket-PrimeCables® for $9.99, the Adjustable Satellite Speaker Wall Mount (Max 7.7LBS/3.5Kgs) – Set of 2 – PrimeCables® for $7.99, the Universal Wall & Ceiling Projector Bracket, Support up to 20kgs/44lbs – PrimeCables® for $14.99, and the Adjustable Wall/ Ceiling Speaker Mount (Max 7.7LBS/3.5Kgs) – Set of 2 – PrimeCables® for $9.99.


The best way to mount rear surround sound speakers ultimately comes down to your preference and the space you’re using. Decide on the best position for the speakers, ideal for both sound and aesthetics. See why so many Canadians have already made the switch to mounting their speakers and shop with PrimeCables today to find the perfect speaker mount for your home!

The Ultimate Guide to Buying Speaker Wire in Canada

Buy Best Speaker Wire in Canada - PrimeCables
Buy Best Speaker Wire in Canada – PrimeCables

Various gauges, lengths, and types of speaker wire make it not so clear on what the right speaker wire is for your home entertainment setup. As most speakers do not come with their own wire, it leaves the door open for the consumer to customize their own audio setup. For cheap high quality speaker wire in Canada, there’s only one place to go. Buy from PrimeCables and receive the best speaker wire in Canada for huge discounts. Even better, receive a 1-year guarantee, free returns, and fast, free shipping on any orders above $49.


Before you buy speaker wire from PrimeCables though, let’s jump a little into the different gauge types. Gauge is communicated as a representation of wire thickness. The thickness of wire controls the resistance to electrical flow, meaning that the thicker the wire, the more resistance there is. Wire that is 12-gauge or 14-gauge is considered thick wire, and comes recommended for longer lengths, high power applications, and low impedance speakers of 4 or 6 ohms. Comparatively speaking, less thick gauges such as 16-gauge wire is recommended for shorter runs of wire under fifty feet.


Though gauge type is one of the bigger decisions that one has to make when it comes to buying speaker wire, there are other considerations to make. How much wire you need and the length required can be easily mapped out by using twine to run between location to location. Be sure to keep in mind that some slack is recommended with speaker wire so add on an additional five or six feet to any speaker wire order. That way, you have some slack and some room for error if you accidentally calculate short or require more speaker wire than you have.


From there, one can decide on whether they wish to have speaker wire with or without connectors. If the speaker wire you buy does not come with its own connectors, we recommend using banana connectors on at least one end. Why we recommend this is because attaching bare wire ends on a receiver can be an unnecessary challenge. The last thing we want to mention is to ensure that positives and negatives are appropriately connected. If a connection ends up crossed, the audio will not sound correct or may not work at all.

What Speaker Wire Gauge should I use?

speaker wire info, image credited by

Searching for the right speaker wire gauge to use can be challenging. There are many specifications to consider when selecting a speaker wire gauge. To begin, resistance is arguably the most important component to choosing a speaker wire. For example, a low-resistance speaker provides more power from the amplifier to the speaker. All in all, resistance is influenced by three components – conductivity, length, and thickness.


Conductivity measures the flow of electricity and is measured in Siemens. All PrimeCables-branded speaker wire is made with oxygen-free copper ensuring some of the highest conductivity ratings in Canada. Then, there’s length of the cable. The general rule regarding length is that the longer the wire, the more resistance. Therefore, the longer the cable is, the better the resistance needs to be, or else one will have to increase power on the other end to achieve the same sound as one might hear from a shorter wire. Please note that it is not recommended for any speaker wire cable to be longer than fifty feet. The last component is thickness. As the thickness of a wire increases – which is measured in AWG, gauge number – the resistance of the wire decreases accordingly. Thereby, for longer wires, a thicker wire is required.


There are some golden rules you want to remember when browsing speaker wire. For example, when the gauge of a wire is tripled, its resistance doubles. The best thing we can recommend is to browse the PrimeCables speaker wire chart indicating the different requirements for wire gauge numbers 18-16 AWG and across 2 ohm, 4 ohm, 6 ohm, and 8 ohm loads. Using this speaker wire gauge chart is a great way to get a handle on what’s best for your home setup.


Connecting your home theater system begins, in many cases, by knowing how the cable and wire setup is going to be structured. Deciding on a speaker wire gauge can provide some direction on where to begin hooking things up. Though it can seem daunting, hooking up your home theater system is made easy once you get a hang of speaker wire. Be it for audiophiles, casual listeners, and/or for everyday Canadian households, the right speaker wire gauge can help significantly improve and upgrade a stereo system.


Needless to say, we know our wires. PrimeCables is a premiere Canadian ecommerce cable and speaker wire retailer, with over a decade of experience serving Canadians far and wide. When you buy speaker wire from PrimeCables, you receive a 1-year guarantee on any purchase, free returns included, and on any orders above $49, fast and free shipping to anywhere in Canada.
