All the wire besides a select few which 99.9% know about, will provide plenty of bendabilty for your install..
and I've done a real comparison on some a couple years ago..I dont have that data anymore though
in all fairness this thread is only a wire comparison not a load test.
In this thread all I have compared is flexability which is important to a fair amount of people
and how much of the diameter is actually the jacket
plus a kind a thread count
with that being said if you look up a bit there will be a part 3 with a load test involved but for that to happen I will have to save up some more money so I can purchase about 50ft of 3 different brands plus I will have to purchase a load, say a 1000w 12v light. Now once I save up some cash I will be purchasing 50ft of :
and instrial 1/0 (which I have access to at my plant)
my source will be a 12v battery attached to a charger. I feel with 50ft of wire, a load (1000w) it should replicate how the wires will react in a car setting. so please everyone hold tight right now it is contract time where I work and things don't look good but I will know more once I get all set up.
If anyone else has an idea of how I can perform a load test please let me know your thoughts. and yes I have access to multimeters, timers, and clamp meters all of the fluke brand.
you did some load testing... this is what I need. I would like to know how you did this? How was your test for repeatability and how many brands did you check?
could you please drop me a PM and maybe we can put our heads together and get something that is worth while for my load test!
David.. Quit. I like you, but quit. Shok isnt the best. Russ may give you free wire, but there are other brands out there, and shok is.. at best in the middle of quality, price and performance.
what does everyone think bout monster wiring? i might score a nice length for cheap.
maybe i missed it but whats the best to worst over all thanks
so which one was the best over all top 5 if u can give me im bout to buy 0ga but i dont want to spend a ton thanks man it would help a ton
thank you for this thread! very informative! very good job!
Awesome information. I hate looking a gifthorse in the mouth, I wish I could see where AudioTechnix fell in there. :D
DB link? didn't see it in this review, i like db link wire, i dont know where it would fall in this comparison but i like it
is the cadence wire ofc or cca? i know it says ofc but i've been reading around and many people have said it is cca.
Awesome thread. Too bad a lot of "China made" wiring kits are passing off CCA wire as OFC. There are tons of this crap on eBay.
thanks for the awesome information. recently bought 50ft of the cadence 0 ga wire believing them when they said it was 100% ofc. then I saw the wire in hand and realized it was cca. wish I would have read the entire thread before dumping $100. But, here is the good news. I contacted the ebay seller I got the wire from and they offered a $25 credit per purchase so $50 total or the option to return for full credit. Not too shabby. From ebay seller's email response: "We honestly advertised this with all the specs given from Cadence. I just emailed them and they told me that these cables are CCA and they are not Pure Copper."
on the rf wire it has pc or pure crystal ofc what does that actually mean?
