    Re: who makes the best power/gnd/speaker wire?

    for something people rarely see, why buy expensive *** power wire and cheaper wire will do the same job...

    i mean come on, $8.25 per foot for pear cable?
    or $1.75 per foot on KnuKonceptz cheapest line.

    Id rather say flexibility, although nice, is not worth the extra 6+ dollars per foot.

    You can not have a tinned silver copper or tinned aluminum copper cable, the word "tinned" means its coated in tin - in the above you have three metals in one cable....
    Now you could have a tinned silver wire or a tinned aluminum wire - (notice the Silver or aluminum is the core metal)

    The KLM cable is copper clad aluminum - its core is aluminum and the outer is copper.
    im not sure of all the terminology.

    all i know is my kicker says "Silver tinned OFC copper", and the other run of the kollosus i have i think just says 5xxx strand ofc.

    i know what tinned means, and i thought yours was copper that was coated with aluminum to save on production costs due to the rising copper price, no?

    here is a pic, its not mine but you can see it written on the grey wire




    edit: hmmm i guess i dont know what tinned means...tin is a metal? i thought it just referred to a process of coating something with a metal

    Re: who makes the best power/gnd/speaker wire?

    Yes - tin is the metal you see making the cable silver in appearance - so the text:

    Silver Tinned OFC Copper

    is very redundant, Tin is silver in color and OFC is short for Oxygen Free Copper So the cable says Silver Tinned Oxygen Free Copper Copper......interesting.........

    Copper is the core material, but it has been tinned to prevent oxidation. I suppose you could call it tin plated copper, just as silver plated copper. I am sure Kicker is not Silver plated, silver is a brighter color metal then tin

    And the KLM cable is Aluminun coated in copper. The Kolossus series is Tinned OFC (both std and Fleks)

    yea i noticed the redundancy. i actually thought it said "silver tinned ofc copper", but when i posted it i left the copper part out, until i found a picture, because ofc copper sounded funny.
    eh, i like the kicker 1/0 and the kollosus 1/0 i have in my car

    Because the road noise and lack of optimum listening environments in cars renders any (hypothetical) advantage gained by these rca's moot.
