    You have Knu 4ga OFC as well? Or comparing it to the Knu 1/0ga CCA you have? I'm still undecided on whether I want to go with Knu or AT for my spring build either. I've dealt with Coleman so I may go that route just because of that. Or maybe I should get a 5ft piece of each before I get a 50ft roll? Hmm, decisions. Anyway, let me know what you think of both.

    I'll let you know. Comparing the AT OFC 4ga to the Knu 0ga CCA, even though it's kind of a one-sided fist fight lol. I'm using the 0ga as ground since it's just wrapped up in my trunk anyway and routing the 4ga AT for power. I would have done 0ga OFC/CCA, but didn't want to spend another 20 bucks getting a new fuse holder. Perhaps when I step up to a dual amp setup (or my Leviathan, you know...).

    Re: First KnuKonceptz Purchase

    Most will say Kolossus because it's OFC and can handle an extra 50a of current draw, but for the price the CCA is unbelievably awesome. I have it as the ground for my amp now and LOVE how flexible that stuff is. Plus it doesn't shed like crazy when you strip the insulation off for crimping to a ring terminal.

    I appreciate the answer, but I'm looking to get the best and fastest current wire possible. Can you PM the link for that item? Thanks

    Kolossus. Do a search on google to find it. Reason is not only does it handle more amperage, but more importantly it is less resistant.

    Speed of current flow won't change in either medium. Current is current. But if you want best of the best, here you go.

    Thanks sir, so in your opinion this power wire is the best option and quality available for the money?

    For the money? Absolutely. Though, like I said, unless you're looking at drawing a huge amount of current, this is a cheaper option and definitely better on the wallet:

    Re: First KnuKonceptz Purchase

    I understand and appreciate ur help on considering my wallet and all, but I would like to just buy one time, have good stuff, use it on my future installs, and that's why I'm trying to get the best option and get rid of all that bootleg cheap stuff I bought when I began my install on this car.

    Either of those two will be miles ahead quality-wise in comparison to what you've been using. Just go with the OFC, then.

    Re: First KnuKonceptz Purchase

    No doubt knu fleks... Just caught eye of the post from like a month ago, I can say that "built in remotewire" is my only complaint... I've done two installs, both with skar vvx 12 both with hifonics amps and both I recommended knu wiring... The first time I saw and intentionally ordered the 4 gauge cca kit with bolt in rca for the hfi1000d amp, hard to strip that remote wire. The second time I told him not to get the built in bc of my previous troubles, so we ordered a different RCA maybe the klarity kable and it came with it, honestly pissed me off how bad it was. When trying to seperate the remote from the RCA it tore the remote wire sheathing down causing me to constantly have to keep strippin the wire... long story short I thought it wasn't built in remote so I had him order knu fleks remote wire, that's the knu I'm used too...

    I'm nothin but a knu fan obviously my build has every bit of wire and RCA from knu. They need to get that built in remote **** together though. Other than that though the 2 cca kits I used were fantastic both 4 and 0 gauge, and yes it is oversized 0 gauge so much much bigger and better than any other wire on the market.

    Sorry about the review, but if your looking at rcas from knu I went with krystal and have no complaints, no built in remote.

    Have a set of Krystal 4-channels coming in soon. Hopefully they'll be better than my Krystals. I'll keep one set on the subs, though. That built-in remote wire was the whole reason I went with one in the first place. Further down the road, though, I'll be less lazy and just run up a separate remote wire.

    Btw this was posted in reviews, so you're fine. I kinda started this thread to gather opinions.

    Re: First KnuKonceptz Purchase

    Like I said Bud I went outta my way to run the knu fleks remote wire had to completely pull the indash out of a passat (Big pain in the a@@) just to do it again, because I didn't want that in my install.. I just got my 4 channel krystals my 2 channel 1/2M's to bridge my amps, I'm all set from knu except another 100ft of knu fleks ofc and a spool of remote wire lol

    Re: First KnuKonceptz Purchase

    Oh yeah also got 100ft ft of kord 10ga ofc, thats quality wire as well, just what you'd expect from them... Sorry xs I run your batts but someone tried to argue that the xs wire was better at 600+ strands less, and 1$ more per ft. Their argument was that little bit of wire won't even matter, the only thing I could say was "your still paying more for less!" Like what do you even say to someone so ignorant?

    Also did a fleks test (my way) and the knu fleks is much more flexible
