Default Brand of wire

What brands of Wire are good? I've used KnuKonceptz in the past & had good luck. I'm fixing to wire up my RE XT-4000DE. The cables will be short, so I assume 4ga will be plenty big enough.

I use Stinger but IMO it's way overpriced. Any oxygen free copper Wire will do fine.

Im guess that amp doesnt put out 4000w, or even 2000w for that matter. Us amps is lame with their marketing lies. Im to lazy to look up its specs but if it accepts 0 guage its probably for a reason. look in the hot deals forum someone posted a link to some 0 guage street wires for a good price. Or if its a short distance like you said buy KNU by the foot

I personally like the JL wire over stinger, it has a wayyyy higher strand count (I can barely fit it in my 1/0 stinger distro block) but no issues fitting it into the amps. When I Build my new box next month Ill take some build pics and show the difference in the size and strand count. Its closer to my street-wires wire but alot more flexible, but for what I paid for the 25 ft of street wires 1/0 I cant complain (was ~30 bux off ebay with fuse holder and welding lugs). Stinger is still a great choice though, aswell as KNU, Street Wires, JL (pricey as hell though). There are a few other good brand but I'm too tired to try and think of them right now.

Remember boys and girls, strand count only helps with flexibility, not power carrying capability.
Welding wire has proved time and time again to be one of the best ratios to size/price. And its plenty flexible

Lol, I dunno what you guys are talking about, but most of the welding wire I've seen can't hold a flame next to my knu wire. Although, if you route it right, you don't need to be bending it at some crazy angle anyways in which case flexibility is a moot point.
