Jesus christ dude its huge! funny right? Lol but for real 4/0 means 4awg...do they have a 1/0? That would be almost retarted to see and or try to run thru your car lol. I thought it looked big then saw the comparison. So is this "welding" cable but its just bigger because its Carol? Whats the strand count on this? and maybe you could give me some insight on into whats so good about welding cable specifically 3/0 or even 1/0 that alot of people use and then pay more for a wire that just seems like it'd be cheaper in nature

Say what?

4/0 isn't 4 gauge.

4/0= about 4 4 gauge runs

...wrong 4/0 is way bigger than 4ga chief.. ur totally misundertanding how wire sizes work lol.. 1/0 is smaller than 4/0 by alot look at the comparison..bigger wire means more current can flow meaning more power thats why people use it...

i really wish i had the budget for this right now.

and for the record, the cheapest i could find this online was close to 12 dollars a foot + shipping. so **** good deal.

Price drop $150 shipped to the lower 48 for this 4/0 wire. I will also trade for a 50 foot rool of 1/0 that's real copper and normal diameter. No welding cable please. Lemme know

until you convert it wire this big is used for higher voltage lower amperage systems.. I.e houses

....huh?

KyleBechtold
07-30-2011, 02:49 AM
....huh?

to figure out how many amps it carries.. meant to quote the guy asking how many amps it carries.. wire this big is rated at volts not amps as they usually aren't thought to be used in high amperage but instead high voltage..

This is not wire like you find in Home Depot, this is fine stranded wire used for industrial tool power. The system that this wire was used on is a 400 volt 300 amp service for each tool, so it is made for large current and higher voltages.

that is just what it is used on.. this stuff is rated at 600v.. couldn't find amperage

Yeah, plus in reality the huge differences between wires are strand count and jacketing type. This is high strand count with a neoprene jacket, so just high quality wire.

lol your wrong too, 2 4awg=0awg so 4 4awg would=2/0.............8 4awg=4/0

This is also wrong, Wikipedia is your friend. Cross-sectional area of true American Gauge 4AWG is 21.2 mm^2. 1AWG is 42.2 mm^2, so its more accurate to say that 2x4AWG = 1x1AWG. 1/0 AWG is 53.3 mm^2. This wire here however is a whopping 107 mm^2, which is about 5x4AWG, and is exactly double that of a single 1/0 AWG cable. Which actually makes it the perfect size for serious audio installs, as the most I've ever seen used is 2x1/0 runs for power. I'm sure there are builds out there that use more, but I'm not into looking at SPL setups. Source (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_wire_gauge#Table_of_AWG_wire_sizes).


that is just what it is used on.. this stuff is rated at 600v.. couldn't find amperage

Should handle up to 400 amps of power draw and not break a sweat. Had to look around a bit to find this figure, but makes sense now that I think about it. Exactly double of a 1/0s cross sectional area, which handle about 200, 210 amps. So double that. Beastly!


Anyway, sorry to hijack thread, just a lot of misinformation going around. This is beastly and I eagerly await the day that I will require this sort of copper for my audio system :D. Till then, GLWS!

In a 12V-14V, short run system like your car, this will handle up to 400 amps of power draw and not break a sweat.

problem is its only one 25ft run.. that would be a run for me thats it in a big truck.. I would like a + and - run front to back and for $300 - $400 to get this would be a little on the high side.. still a great price..

Leave it at that price, someone has GOT to pick it up soon... I can't believe it's not gone yet. How heavy is this run anyways?! Cheaper than a run of name brand 1/0, and shipped right to your door.
