Knukonceptz product detail for 1/0 AMPLIFIER INSTALLATION KIT

i was thinking about buying that, but compared to the 4 gauge kit it doesnt have a whole lot of wire, or extra features like the rca's, or things like that, and im a lil uncertain if thats enough wire to run from the batt to the trunk(id rather have extra than not enough in this case)

so just wondering anyone know wher ei can get some good deals on wire or a kit?

thanks

I'm not really sure where you can get a good deal on a kit, but if you do a little searching local you can probably find nice welding cable for no more than 1.50/foot for the big stuff. It's not pretty, but it does the job. I got mine from a local Praxair.

The only thing that scares me about welding cable is that some tends to be stiff and a pain to work with. The stuff I got from my local Praxair Distribution was pretty good though. I looked and there are a few in New York, if you have any close to you you might want to stop by and check it out.

I like it because it doesn't have the big plastic casing around it. My 2/0 is physically the same size as car audio 1/0 because it doesn't have the bulky case, so if you get the 1/0 it should be easier to squeeze into places than reg 1/0 :)

ok im doing some comparison shopping on knukonceptz.com,

Their 1/0 gague kit is as follows:
18ft 1/0 power
5ft 1/0 ground,
FH20 fuse holder wit fuse,
4 ring terminals,
6 ft split loom and wire ties

And this is if i bought it individualy from knukonceptz.com
25 ft of power wire @ 2.35/ft = $58.75
FH20 fuse holder and fuse = $19.99
4 ring terminals @ 1.75 ea = $7.00
5meter RCA = $7.99
__________
and my total is : $93.73 + S&H

and the search continues.
