We tend to think of cables as just dumb wires that go in and out of our amplifiers, but lately I've come to recognize that our instruments, effects, amps and speakers are all part of a system, rather than discreet unrelated units. Cables are important at every link. Anything which affects a part of that continuous circuit will have an effect on the quality of sound. This seems obvious, but it's surprising how many people don't think that way. I've always used good cables, I thought, on the instrument end. And then I bought some GREAT cables as an experiment. I expected, at best, subtle differences, but got enormous ones. I have no similar comparison for these speaker cables - I got them when I got a new cabinet - but I suspect the principle holds, just to a lower extent because it's further along the signal chain.
These are big beefy cables. The distinguishing features are the size of the conductors and the heavy duty insulation and connectors. They're made for performing under difficult circumstances. With 12 gauge conductors, each of these cables can easily carry 2400 Watts of power without heating up! If you need more headspace than that, I can't help you... With instrument cables the concern is minimizing the effects of capacitance and (to a minimal extent) inductive reactance. With speaker cables you're more concerned with resistance. These are really some LARGE pipes.
The connectors and visible parts of the cables are first rate. I haven't taken them apart, so I can't really say what they're like inside, but everything you can see (and hear) from the outside is excellent.
This is the area in which Live Wire cables really shine. There are no other manufacturers I've found who offer such high quality at such a reasonable price. This is especially true for Live Wire's Elite line of cables, both instrument and speaker. I have better instrument cables, but I haven't found better speaker cables at any price.

At first glance, I loved the look and feel of these speaker cables. They're made of nice, soft, heavyweight (12-gauge) wire, with equally heavy and high-quality 1/4" plug connectors, but unfortunately, I experienced a number of connectivity issues with them on certain amps and cabs.

When plugging into certain jacks (both input and output), the 1/4" plugs on these cables would fail to fully travel all the way into the jack before striking the seat of the plug, causing an incomplete connection with no transfer of signal. In other words, before they would 'click' fully into place, the seat of the plug would strike the outside circumference of the jack, and this hasn't happened with my gear using any other brand of speaker cable.

I can't really explain it - perhaps the shaft length of the plugs themselves are slightly too short, or maybe the tip of the plugs is too rounded after the insulator, I don't know. The added weight of the large and extra heavy metal plugs seemed to make matters even worse, by putting excessive and unnecessary downward pressure on the jack. Anyway, the problem was/is bad enough that I won't be buying these cables again, but your mileage may vary.

              I purchased a pair of these cables because of the quality and the warranty. However, I had a concern before I purchased it because the connector appeared to be very thick and in my application the two output jacks are very close together. So I called and spoke to one of the "gear heads" and he looked up the device I use and took a look . . He assured me it would work so I made the purchase. Guess what?!? . . . They didn't work. These guys are still great, but I would recommend steering away from this cable if your jacks are less than and inch apart.

                            I kept trying to get the cable to plug into my speaker cabinet and it would not go in completely. I noticed that the connector on one end of the cable is slightly thicker about an 1/8 on an inch farthest from the tip. It appears that it is designed this way. As I was looking at the reviews I saw the first review from Stardust above and it seems he has the same problem.
