I would use them for speaker wire, but I am sure others wouldn't want to even get close to them. Why don't you just try it for yourself? You won't break anything.

Edit: They ARE insulated, aren't they?

I would use them for my car audio amplifiers positive and negative power cable. These cables would go striaght to my altenator or battery, with a fuse on the positive cable of course, these cables offer lower resistance than the car frame. This lower resistance is a good thing for the amplifiers which have capacitors that charge and discharge...........and guess what determines there speed of recharging when decharged by a loud musical peak, yes the resistance from there power source!!!!!!

ANYWAY, WORKED GREAT IN MINE!
