Howdy everyone.. was setting up a speaker system for a friend of mine and noticed that their speaker wire had one bronze colored line, and one silver colored line. Just wondering what the significance of this is..

I have seen this at Walmart on one of the speaker cables they carry. I believe the main reason is so that you can differentiate between the two...so that you don't hook it up the wrong way. But I am not sure if color is the only thing that separates these cables.

Anybody else know about this.

The Home Depot 12ga is the same way. It's like Neeraj said... it's so you can differentiate between the two so you can hook up the polarities correctly.

Inside, it's still copper.

positive to positive, negative to negative. you pick the color you want to be it and just stick with it. different manufacturer's have different ways of differentiating which is which. You may even find wire that is copper both sides with the sheathing carrying the identification markings.
