    audio technix , knu, or shok ?

    I'm soon to be getting my two sa-8's with 1200 rms going to them and i'm wondering which type of wire to get ? I know some that you mainly buy the name but i want experiences not just " i heard or i know a guy" oh yea OFC FTW!

    In my experience it's the other way around...the knu and shok i had seemed very well held together but the AT cca i got moved a little too much and you could feel the wire moving around in the jacket. I know coleman did some different runs to try and fix it so idk if I got a bad run or not...just my .02

    Knu and Shok are slightly bigger then AT but it is still a good product for the price... On that note though I do use Knu

    Re: audio technix , knu, or shok ?

    The monster 1/0 that mclerico83 mentioned is by far the best deal going right now. It's going for a tad over two bucks a foot. I bought fifty feet of the clear jacketed stuff, since it's tinned. The red and brown isn't tinned, but it's still great wire at that price.
