This is what I got...Welding cable.
I got 20 ft. of solid black 1/0 awg wire for $50 bucks from a local welding supply retailer.
My welding cable has a high strand count, is very flexible, and is pure OFC.This is what I got...
KnuKonceptz KCA Black 1/0 Gauge Power Wire 20 Feet | eBay
It's aluminum coated in copper, not sure how it compares to welding cable, but it's nice and flexy!
Well, most of the time, industrial grade products are more superior than hobby use products...... Because industrial grade are using logical numbers on product spec, while hobby spec are more on "wah" spec, like a xx brand power cable are using 99.9999% OFC.....I'm not knocking knu though. They offer great deals.
IMO 9 times outta 10 you can find an industrial product that the same or just as good as many products made and marketed for car audio use.
The welding wire I bought is just as flexible as anything I've ever seen. But the fleks is the only OFC wire they have and $187+shipping for 50ft. is almost twice the price of my OFC welding cable for $50 for 20ft.Here is the scoop:
Want bend ability up the a$$ and most expensive: Kicker
Want the second best bend ability and a higher strand count and cheaper/ best all around: KNU
Want the cheapest without bend ability (still bends well) then welding is the way to go.
I would never go Kicker. Why? Bend is beyond what you need in a car and I want a higher strand count. That leaves KNU and welding. I still buy KNU since it has ALL the parts I need for my audio system RIGHT there.
