Everyone knows, if you can afford it go OFC, as an "it is better / do it once method"

0 gauge ofc wire: https://www.down4soundshop.com/accessories/cables/1-0-gauge/

nothing special some tinned some not, Tinned ftw, just my opinion

but now this

2 / 0 gauge wire: https://www.down4soundshop.com/accessories/cables/2-0-gauge/

mother of gawd that's big! that's what she said.

That's a lot of excessive wire, looking at the mass-produce amplifier terminals.

at this point, since we are clearly trying to put the energy of the sun in these amps, ( totally exaggerated ) we just need to make square inputs on amps with slide-out multi-point inserts wire.

You think that's big? (Which it absolutely is) check this out

I like the writeup. You can tell they have to deal with complete fuckwits asking stupid questions on social media 24/7.

My only concern/comment (which they did not address) is that if you're not planning to DIY distro blocks for these they will be challenging to work with on the ends. I doubt Jim's or Toolmaker is making blocks to fit.

That said, I'm pretty loyal to the orange ultra flex at weldingsupply.com. Been running that for 20 years with no issues... in fact I've been running the first piece I ever bought for 20 years now, it has followed me through several vehicles, it's made in the USA, and they always have a human pick up the phone if you need help placing your order. 2/0 welding cable from them fits snug in most of the 1/0 amp terminals and distro blocks commonly used for car audio.

That definitely looks like some beefy 2/0 OFC. I bought my 1/0 from here as well. https://www.down4soundshop.com/down4sound-0g-ofc-tinned-wire-clear-by-the-foot/

In all honesty, its legit!
