I've used a lot of different speakon cables in the past few years, many of which were cheaper options. But you get what you pay for, and soon the connectors start falling apart, kinks appear in the cable and it becomes harder to coil up. Safe to say I'm not worried about any of these issues with these cables. They have big, chunky Neutrik connectors with a catch release, and along with the thick cable make for a real solid and reliable speaker cable, but it still remains light enough to not cause any unnecessary strain on cable or connection plate on your speaker. The cable flexes with ease and always coils up perfectly. The sound quality is superb, and this is probably the best cable you're gonna find in this price range. Excellent value for money!
