So far just power wire.

I'd do speaker wire as well if my install called for it. Although, I see trying to put RCAs through the conduit being a huge PITA.

speaking from experience helping my dad as an electrician.....Union and Non-Union electricians more commonly use dish washing liquid than any type of commercially available lubricant to pull large wire through conduit....probably the main reason is that it contains almost no conductive material as do some of the commercially available lubricants.....and in the worst case scenario if you get it on you or on your interior of your car it wont hurt you or it....just somethign i thought i would throw out there.....

i got some 3/4 inch conduet yesterday and ran it under my impala, it was way easier than i thought it would be, this thread helped a ton, and by the way when you run 1/0 wire through 20ft of conduet lubed up with armorall at about 2am, its aperently hilarous when you have a guy standing at each end trying to grab the wires from eachother, wow i am special, and i cant spell today either, but thanks for this tread, i would have been up the creek without it

i would not recommend using any petroleum derived lube for pulling wire as it will break down rubber and plastic, the best thing to use is electricians lube, or if youre on a budget, a lil trick we used to use for putting on our bmx handlebar grips,..... dish soap, dries to a sticky consistency and can be reused again and again by simply applying a small amount of h2o

Little side note. "Flex conduit" actually looks like this:



Good stuff, but not so good in the elements.

The OP used what we call carflex, or non-metallic liquidtight conduit.

There's also a mix of the above two conduits offered, known as liquidtight metallic conduit, which is seriously durable stuff. It has an inner layer of metal for added strength.




Carry on!

Default Re: Flex Conduit (Run Wires Under Your Car)

Please be carefull running your battery cable in that conduit. Thats called liquid tight. used for connecting a/c unit or disconnects outside. The code says you cant run more that 6' ft of this. also you are not giving the tube the alotment it need and your going to have heat build up and it will burn. You only use 80% has you need the other 20% for air movement. Then you have the issue with your hot ( positive ) cable isolated from the ground and your going to have electrons building up going no where and burning. Please dont burn.

Default Re: Flex Conduit (Run Wires Under Your Car)

:P heat builds up, not the electrons. Otherwise the voltage at that particular section of wire would be higher. Just does not happen with conductors, the electrons spread out evenly.

But yeah, true enough about the wire heating up.
