I run Knukonceptz and a little bit of Sky High Car Audio OFC 1/0 and they're both great wire. They're both around $3.50 - $4 per foot

SHCA is the way to go. Shipping, customer service, and wire are great.

If you go the CCA route Sky High has rolls of 50' oversized 1/0 on ebay for $80 shipped. I was looking at getting a roll earlier tonight, lol.

SHCA is all hype. Their wire isn't tightly wrapped nor compressed, making it seem a lot larger than it is


You can't go wrong with welding cable. eBay has the best prices

As been stated, Sky High is NOT the way to go. Pull the jacket right off the wire.

and I second the notion for welding cable. Holding it's ampacity up to 100' for 600v?!! no contest



just no point in buying car audio cable unless you plan on tying knots in your wiring

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's noticed it.


I have 2 runs of welding 2/0 and it's plenty flexible for running through a car/truck
