    2/0 welding wire

    What are your thoughts on 2/0 welding wire?? I can get it at a good price and was wondering if it is as good as 1/0 ofc from audiotechnix

    Re: 2/0 welding wire

    For what?

    Do you mean for ground/power?

    I used to use that 20+ years ago as an alternate to audio power/ground in order to save some cash. Though it did work for what I needed to do, I don't use welding cable anymore for anything other than a welding ground on my MIG.

    It deifnitely can handle as much or more current than the AT OFC, but the jacket will be a bit more fragile and it will be less flexible.

    Re: 2/0 welding wire

    Assuming it's a high strand count then it will work fine. I've used 2/0 & 4/0 welding in a few builds....

    Yes, definitely beware, some wire has a few giant strands, it's a pita to work with.
