Anyone knowing of some good deals on true Ofc copper wire?
Or what is a good bang for the buck.
I'll be getting about 200-300ft.

i typically just suggest either welding supply or KNU's KLMX and go to Lowes and get some of that No-OX stuff and coat the wires with it so they don't corrode over the next few years and that's the cheapest i've seen.

When doing it this way, i usually run twice as many of these cables as i would with something better like Kolossus, etc..

The cost is cheap and 2 runs of WS or KLMX will kill Kolossus.

Idk. Knu kollossus flex is $175 for $50 that's really high and not even copper its aluminum.
Also the plain kollossus is $87 for 50ft and still carries 250 amp load which isnt bad.

Kolossus Fleks Kable 1/0 Translucent Black (Smoke) Power Wire features 5145 Tinned Strands of Pure Oxygen Free Copper and a new Ultra Fleks Matte PVC Jacket. Our new jacket allows for improved flexibility and maintains exceptional resistance to abrasion, oil, and extreme temperatures (-40 to 105 C). Capable of loads over 300A.

MAXIMUM load @20ft- 375A.

I don't know where you got the idea that Kolossus was Aluminum... That wouldn't make any sense for it to cost so much.

I don't know where you got the idea that Kolossus was Aluminum... That wouldn't make any sense for it to cost so much.

Kolossus Copper Aluminum Kable (KCA Kable) has arrived! The KCA Kable uses the same ultra flex PVC found in the Kolossus Fleks Kable and the Copper Clad Aluminum (CCA) conductor from the KLMX Kable. Copper Clad Aluminum (CCA) is made up of 90% Aluminum and 10% Copper. CCA overall provides a cost effective solution to most audio systems. Assembled from stranded 34 gauge CCA, the KCA Kable is equal in size to the Kolossus Fleks Kable, but is designed for lighter current loads and not lightening your wallet.

The KCA series 1/0 Black Cable offers improved flexibility over the 'KLMX' Series and a rugged PVC outer jacket that is impervious to grease and oil. The PVC outer jacket can with-stand the extreme temperatures (-40 to 105 C) and capable loads of 250A. Price is per 50' section. Buying 2 or more 50' sections will result in one continuous roll of wire (example - Purchase 3 and get 150' continuous)

250A @20ft.

I'm looking for wire and was planning on welding or Knu Kolosses Flecks. If I can get better for the same money, I'm down. I'm in for finding wire!
