Post Wire comparison Review (1/0,4awg,8awg inside)

Review of: Wire Comparisons

I have been collecting for a while now.
I plan on doing the Big3 and running 1/0 though out my truck.

Here are some comparison pictures:















Well overall the most flexible 1/0 wire IMO would be the Knu KCA 1/0 and Shok 1/0.
The Raptor 1/0, Stinger Pro 1/0, and Tsunami Comp 1/0 is very still.
The Cadence 4 awg I picked the other day on a daily special online. It is a very good 4 awg and very flexible. Anyone wondering about Cadence wire I would recommend it to anyone. Its a really good bang for the buck.
The Flux EFX 8 awg is very flexible and I believe it oversized. Very nice wire for the price.
The Raptor 8 awg is pretty small. The wire came in a amplifier wiring kit my sister got for free with her amplifier order.

I figured this would help out a lot of people on choosing wire for the set-ups.
I knew I was on the fence on what wire to order. I couldn't find much comparison pictures online.
So I hope this will help some people out.

Let me know any of you need any better comparison shots.

I'd like to see more about the Cadence wire, can you get a close up? There seems to be mixed information about it being copper or CCA. From your photo its difficult to see, but if you look at the strands, is the core silvery like the KCA cable?

Thanks

I run 1/0 Knu and it is great! I think it is the best one out of those, IMO...

I run all knu wire. At least for 0 gauge. And from the pics, it's the beefiest.

That stinger and raptor wire is just sad....
