JSC Wire 8 AWG Black High Current Power Cable 1 ft. USA is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from JSC Wire & Cable 8 AWGI just finished installing the amp in my car. I decided to get this wire for a couple of reasons. One, I have been using all oxygen free speaker wire on my cars and love it. This was pure copper wire and it looks very good. I only got a few feet of this black one because I already had a bunch of the red 8 awg wire. I like to keep the positive red and my negative black to make things easy to work with and consistent. Plus my positive and negative are usually a very short distance. Now getting connectors for this size takes patience. I found the ring terminals at my local autozone. I also got the spades here, but I can only use those for the ground terminal since I don't think I saw any terminal that can go into the screw on the amp. They were just too big to fit. I ended up just sticking the wires in those terminals and using them without anything. They seem to hold and work fine, but if there are any with smaller spades for this size of wire, that would be great. Which brings me to my next point. If you only have a simple setup like me, one amp and a set of component speakers, you may be able to use 10 awg instead and connectors may be easier to find. Why do I point this out, well my other car has a 10 awg size wire to the starter! So this size should be fine for a single amp. I like to use one amp to run the system in my car as they are very minimal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Flexible Ground CableI used this for amp installs and also to replace a friends short little ground cable that came in his cheap 6 gauge kit, It's true 8 gauge and was letting more power flow more freely then in the cheaper shorter 6 gauge cable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Take Care When Cutting This CableCable like this is commonly marked with one foot marks along its length to make cutting to the correct length simple. Unfortunately, the run of cable I received had the one foot marks about 18 inches apart, and I cut incorrect size pieces. A rather unfortunate QC Faux Paus. You cannot return custom cut cable. This may be on one run of cable only, but who knows? Look and measure before you cut. The new supplier of this cable to PE uses thinner insulation than the SAME PE part number I purchased a while ago. These two cables of identical gauge are now of different overall diameter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes great speaker cable too!I bought a bunch of this for my car, too much actually. (It worked great by the way.) I had about 15 feet of black and red leftover. I got froggy one day and thought, hmm, wonder how this would work for speaker cable. Well, if you can find connectors or bananna plugs that will accept 8 gauge cable, you're in for a treat. Soooo much more power delivery, especially in the low end. It seems to be pretty hih quality copper. I'm thinking of getting some of the 10 gauge cable to wire my home theater speakers with, I'll post a reveiw if I do decide to. All in all, Good quality cable for high power car audio, and it makes a great speaker cable as well!
