Speaker Wire

I tried the search. No Luck.

I tried the Googler. No luck.

Does anyone have any idea where I can get the color coded speaker wire that matches what I already have in the boat? It has been spliced three times and I want to replace but cannot find matching wire.

Consider some better tinned speaker wire from KnuKonceptz and wire labels from parts express or ebay etc as an alternative idea.

Whats in the boat is probably tinned marine primary wire. Green and purple is common for the tower speakers and white, gray, green and purple for the in-boats. Dont get caught up on color, its used to keep track of how its connected on each end.

I know how to keep track of wire. I want to match what is there now. If no one knows where to find it that's OK.

Whoever worked on the stereo before me spliced in some generic speaker wire with the factory wire and it is driving me crazy. I guess I need to go ahead and decide on 4 speakers and an amp and just redo it all.

Only speaker wire they have has a grey sheath...I appreciate the link though. Have saved for future projects. I will probably order the multi color shrink tubing and use it to identify the wire over the splice or to the amp.

THanks.

Not arguing your findings and maybe I don't understand what you're looking for but they have every color of tinned wire in any gauge one could possibly want. Maybe you are wanting it in some particular configuration.???? I'd be inclined to rewire the entire boat (speakers etc.) in lieu if matching via splicing OEM type wire. It's an easy project and you'll have fresh tinned wire and no intermittent splices. A couple of 25' spools, s few tie-wraps, and some shrink-wrapped connectors will do the trick. I have done two boats in the last two years with a complete rewire and it was easy pie. ==> $0.02

I read it, he is so MCCOD, he want the EXACT same wire as stock.
A boat is not a classic corvette. I would suggest a few sessions with a professional or spend the money on new wire.
Cant go wrong with either source listed and likely go back with larger gauge wire better suited to high output speakers.
