High Performance 12-2 Speaker Cable



Item: TRP-HP122SC

HP12-2 is an ideal speaker cable choice for better home music and theater system installations with moderately powered amplifiers at lengths up to 60 feet per channel. HP12-2 provides better than average performance in lengths greater than 60 feet; however, Transparent recommends using the heavier gauged HP 10-2 for speaker cable runs longer than 60 feet to avoid the possibility of resistive signal loss. You can confirm here that High Performance 12 AWG Speaker Cable is the best choice for your installation.

For a palpable increase in performance, connect the HP 12-2 cables to the speakers with Transparent 12-2 Bricks. If your speakers each have 2 sets of red and black speaker terminals, use Transparent 12-2 Brick Biwire Networks to deliver your amplifier signal to both sets of speaker terminals.


HOW TO ORDER: Every speaker cable package comes with a single length of cable. For example, selecting 20 feet in the length option menu results in ordering a single piece of cable that measures 20 feet. The single length gives you the opportunity to cut that cable into as many or as few pieces of cable in whatever lengths you like. If you want to make a 10 foot pair of speaker cables, order 20 feet from the length menu, and cut the length in half to create 2- 10 foot pieces. The kit comes with a complete termination kit for a pair of speaker cables. You can select your option for soldered or no solder connections and banana or spade terminations in the Term Kit option menu.


  • HP12-2 has roughly double the number of heavy, tightly twisted OFHC copper strands per conductor when compared to HP 14-2 Speaker cable, thereby increasing its current carrying capability significantly.
  • Two 12 AWG conductors in a fire retardant, pressure-extruded outer jacket that reduces electro-mechanical vibration and preserves the intended electrical characteristics of the cable when flexed or bent.
  • HP12-2 is available in continuous lengths from 10-100 feet.
  • If you have biwire speakers and you do not plan to add Brick Networks at this time, use Transparent Premium or Basic Biwire Adapters which provide far superior performance in biwire applications compared to the gold plated jumper plates that come with most biwire speakers. See DIY Speaker Cable Accessories.
  • Use High Performance 12-2 Brick Networks or 12-2 Brick Biwire Networks to optimize the performance of this cable.
  • See DIY Speaker Cable Accessories for extra termination supplies and solderless connector options
  • HP12-2 is upgradeable to The Wall Premium or The Wall Reference Speaker Cable through an authorized Transparent dealer.
