    have been debating ofc vs cca for the new system im building it.

    People should do testing...I remember back in the "moster-cable" days for home audio, similar tests were done. The funny thing is, no one really could tell the difference between a wire-hanger, and 1000.00 speaker wire.

    But its just for the sake of over doing it. The internals on some of the most high-end speakers in the world, use regular basic, wire.

    Like the studies done on $5 HDMI cables vs. the $80-300 ones. NO ONE COULD TELL A DIFFERENCE

    only difference in HDMI cables are build quality. Ive gotten tons of stuff from Monoprice.com and some of the cables are just built bad and will have signal loss if its bent the wrong way..but other than that, its all just marketing. Dont fall into the hype.

    Just like the majority of things in life, you get what you pay for.

    I feel better knowing I can always upgrade than knowing if I wanna upgrade I gotta rip out my **** wires and basically restart.

    So BAM spent 100$ on 25 feet of pure ofc 1/0 welding cable and I'm good for pretty much everything I'd like to do. 1/0 ofc is at 25' is good for I think 250-300 amps of current..cca is probably half that?



    Headunit - Stock cassette player - Pioneer P9400
    Front Stage - Pyle 8 inch subs (1000 watt peak!!) - Polk DB6.5 (about to be CDT 6.5s)
    Rear stage - Deleted (stolen) - Deleted
    Sub stage - custom built 15 inch sony xplod (5k watt peak!!!) (huge box) - Two SA12's built by Corey
    Sub amp - Pyle 8000w peak!! (spl edition) - AQ2200
    Electircal - 35 amp alt from ford festiva upgrade, stolen battery, 28 gauge solder coil for my cable - Dual D34 Yellows, 1/0 trystar OFC, 135amp alt

    Shok OFC or KnuKoncepts. The latter has more strand count. I use the former a lot more though, I forgot why though.

    $265 shipped on 70 feet of OFC Stinger 1/0 wire.

    It would be $295.50 shipped for KNU OFC 1/0
