    I want to run some UL listed monster cable speaker wire in my walls into the attic and then outside underground for some garden speakers, is this cable going to be alright underground or do I need to put it into some pvc pipe for protection. I really don't want to cut and splice two different cables together. Thanks

    The Monster cable will probably last at least a few years when buried directly, but unless it is designed for direct burial the plastic covering tends to biodegrade. A PVC pipe whose joints are well sealed and waterproof is desirable.
