GREAT Product

The 4 AWG was just what I needed to fit 2nd Battery.

VS
Not 4 gauge. NO WAY!

This cable is in no way 4 gauge. It seriously is probably 8gauge. The red plastic surrounding the copper cable makes it appear to be a 4gauge. I do not recommend this unless you're using it for speaker wire. With this item, you get what you paid for. *** EDITOR NOTE: With "copper" wire of any kind... you definitely get what you pay for. We always recommend our Kicker power wire for a true 4 gauge wire that also allows complete flexbility for any installation. PART #: pre-05pwb4-blue-20ft (blue) pre-05pwb4-gray-20ft (gray) ***

This is a good 4 gauge power wire because it can handle a lot power for those bass amps. Its a good price for 20' of wire. You can ran it from the front to the back of your car without any problem...

I bought this wire for my jet boat as well. While it is four gauge in size the copper inside is very thin wire. Too small for my application but it would be fine otherwise. Two 4cha alpine 450's and 1800 class d kenwood just is too much.

This "4 gauge" power wire is set to be sold as a 4 gauge though it is not "true" 4 gauge. The only brands of "true" 4 gauge power wire would be the name brands like Kicker, StreetWires, etc. but also cost that much more, like 5 or 6 times the price. There would be no way a true 4 gauge wire could sell for the price of this wire, there are some manufacturers that can buy more and get better deals on wire(copper), but not significantly. At the same time, there are other cheaper brands that sell 4 gauge wire even thinner than this wire at about the same price. The value for dollar of this wire is unparalleled by any other.

It's about as flexible as you can imaging a 4 gauge wire could be. I use this in my Mercedes for the power wire to both amps. Since the battery is in the back with the AMPs there was no need to use 0 Gauge wire.

If you need a 4-gauge wire then this is not for you. This wire is thick enough to run a decent amp but not recommended for anything higher than 400 r.m.s, 500 tops. Go with streetwires or Kicker instead, it may be a little more but way worth it in the end.

Okay, Sonic Electronix is my first pick when it comes to purchasing electronic equipment for my ride. Always have had good customer service. So far I haven't bought any junk from this company. I bought this low buck :"4" gauge wire for my 1994 Honda Civic Ex. It's not a true 4 gauge thickness. I think the reviews I read about this product said the same. Having said that, It was a good purchace for me. Plenty flexable. Not as thick as standard 4 gauge, so this may work well for your application. I have it powering my RF punch 300.2. Straight to the amp. 2 12's in the trunck. This thing has quite a lot of bass. More than I expected. I came from an el camino with 4 12's and over 1000 true watts to them. Not this doesn't slap that hard, but at least half. And oh ya, my headlights don't dim! Stock altenator and power everything.

I'ts ok but it is not true spec gauge wire. it has about half the amount of strands of wire in it as a stinger pro kit. so i would say this is equal to an 8 gauge so if you want a 4 gauge wire and you are looking at buying this brand buy the 0 gauge wire. there is more rubber the wire than there is wire inside. lol.
