Default My 2/0 Gauge Welding wire review

Hey guys its been a while since ive been on this site. im starting to gear more towards the SQ side of Car audio instead of SPL. so here is my last SPL-related purchase. 2/0 AWG welding Wire recomended by our very own 666 (thanks buddy!!). the wire can be seen and purchased here.. SGR 2/0 SAE J1127 EST-M1L118-A 19x70/30 BC BATTERY CABLE

first off is the price: ONLY 2 BUCKS A FOOT! (plus shipping) i looked all over the internet and this was the cheapest by far i could find.

next is the copper to jacket ratio. its great. the jacket may be a bit thin but words cant really describe so heres pics!!

aint she purtyyy

now is the flex.. and holy h*ll. i can pretty much tie this stuff like i would tie my shoe laces. and not only does it flex really well, but it can hold its flex. its not all floppy which can be a pain in the ass when installing (that feeling thats kinda like shooting pool with a rope haha) but one again take a look for yourself..




another great thing about it is the copper strands. NO aluminum what so ever.. and the strands are as thin as possible. overall it seems like it will be amazing wire. all thats left now is to actually hook it up. when i do il make sure to post.

ps: the site also sells anywhere from 8 gauge to 4/0 gauge (which i almost bought for the "lolz")

Good post. Welding wire in general is better than audio wire as tinned wire has a slightly higher resistance as it's not just pure copper.

Nice review man.

Kyle why wouldn't you use 2/0 again? You think that is tough to use? Try my 3/0 lol. Bending that is difficult lol.

Anybody know the difference between the welding and battery cable? More strands? More flexibility???

Usually battery or automotive cable has more strands in a smaller gauge; Ie: 2000 strands of 30awg. Where as welding cable has less strands in a bigger gauge like 1000 24awg. So yes, battery cable is more flexible due to the strands bending easier.
