Litz wire as internal wiring for speakers

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever used Litz wire to replace the internal wiring in speakers?

I recently visited KAB Electro Acoustics in Plainfield, NJ to purchase Litz wire for some turntable tonearms that I’m rewiring. KAB sells a custom made Litz wire that is covered with silicon instead of the standard Teflon. The silicon covered Litz wire is very flexible making it easy to use in tonearms. The proprietor of KAB recommended trying Litz wire for the internal wiring of vintage speakers. He claimed that the sound would become more “transparent”. I’m tempted to try Litz wire on my next re-cap/restoration project, but it is expensive so I was wondering if anyone had any experience using it?
