Our take on the JL Audio 8-gauge Ground Cable

by Buck Pomerantz
JL Audio

This power cable isn't just a piece of wire — it's part of JL Audio's Engineered Connection Systems, a family of flexible, high-quality power and signal cables. This 6-foot, black-jacketed, 8-gauge cable includes a ring terminal at each end, and provides a perfect ground connection for your moderately-powered amplifier installation.

JL Audio's ECS power wire consists of 99.999% oxygen-free, fine-strand copper for excellent conduction and current-carrying ability, and adheres strictly to American Wire Gauge standard specifications. Its highly-flexible PVC jacket resists damage from oil or gasoline, with an ultra-smooth surface that slides freely when you're running wires.

Equally Great Cable and Price

Written By Gary, Cleveland, OH on Wednesday, August 10, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is a great cable at a reasonable price. It is flexible and easy to work with. There are different sized ring terminals on each end, so you can choose the one that works best for your application. Long enough to cover typical installs. I would highly recommend this ground cable.
