How To Determine The Right Quality
Of An Amplifier Power Cable?
The quality of an amplifier
power cable will have an effect
on the entire stereo system of
your car. Once you have gotten
the amplifier and the
subwoofer, you next step is to
hook them. You will need to
consider the amount of wire
that you will need. In most
cases, the amplifier kits are
labeled using the wattage
rating in order to lure the
consumer. However, what you
get inside the packaging is an
entirely different story.
The rule of thumb is that for an RMS of 500 watts, the gauge of 8
is enough. When it comes to an RMS gauge of 500 to
1000w rms amplifier, you can choose the 4 gauge. For an RMS of
1000 to 1500 watts, a 2 gauge RMS is a good choice. For an RMS
of over 1500 watts, the gauge of 0 is sufficient as well as other
vehicle and wiring upgrades.
It is worth noting that not all wires are created equally. Most of the
cheaper amp wiring contains silver that is in the strands. One
disadvantage of aluminum is that is not able to conduct effectively like
copper. This is to mean that power wires that are cheaper are not able to
carry the same amount of current as the copper wires that are oxygen
free. Another key thing that you need to note is that there is a shielding
difference. The stuffs that are cheaper usually contain less shielding.
Another key quality that will tell you about the wire’s quality is
the wire’s weight. The DB link wire is usually cheaper as compared
to the original copper wire. An amp kit that is of good quality
should be quite heavy. The difference in weight is because the
copper wire is usually 100% oxygen free and this means that the
wire is usually heavier as compared to the aluminum. This has also
to do with the wire’s strand.
