    MONSTER CABLE 25' 1/0 AWG POWERFLEX POWER/GROUND WIRE | eBay
    MONSTER CABLE MPC 400 1S 25' RED 1/0 AWG POWER+GROUND WIRE | eBay

    or this...

    WELDING CABLE 2/0 50


    Seriously? No one would prefer one over the other? This place is usually full of opinions....

    I use Flexaprene, have not had a single issue with it. Monster nope no experience with it, also watch out cause of the plastic piece they stick in the middle of the wire on the Monster Cable.

    flexaprene is decently flexable.. good strand count ... pure copper... exalon is also another good welding company...

    edit: just realized that $2ish a foot is not cheaper than the diyma cca.... but its still better.

    Do you think that monster cable can really take 325 amps?

    I used this in my Camry Copper Clad Aluminum

    I don't even use half the wires capacity... (I am maybe using 100 amps atm.)

    I know that buying the wire separately is going to save money and I would like to buy 50+ feet...
    So maybe I'll save and get this: Knukonceptz product detail for KOLOSSUS FLEKS KABLE 1/0 BLUE POWER/GROUND WIRE - 50FT
    Stuff appears to be about the best out there. By no means cheap, but rated for 375 amps.

    Sigh... it's approaching the cost of what I'm paying for the new amp...

    I would rather be investing in ultra high end RCA cables to try to further enhance the sound, but I don't know if I am eventually going to want to install some 2k+ rms sub amps...

    WOW... I didn't know that stuff was rated that high, lol. I can't find amperage ratings for the monster anywhere... still looking.

    In the wire comparison sticky the conductor weight of the monster was second only to the knu.
