T-Spec Power/Ground Cable
Available by the foot in pearl or gray — marine-certified (8-ga. Pearl)
Our take on the T-Spec Power/Ground Cable by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
This wire meets the highest specifications
Your car's electrical system supplies serious current to your amplifier, so it needs low-resistance wiring in order to deliver its power effectively. T-Spec's power and ground wire meets all American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) standards for size, resistance, and insulation quality. With T-Spec wiring, your amps and speakers will get the energy they need to give you peak performance.
Oxygen-free virgin copper
Recycled copper often contains impurities that can impair conductivity, so T-Spec uses only oxygen-free non-recycled virgin copper in their wire to maximize signal and power flow. The high strand count of this cable and its special PVC blended jacket give it an extraordinary flexibility, making installation easier. Boat owners, this power wire is marine certified, too. Warranty: 1 year.

Yes, but it's overkill for non-audio work. It will work for anything, just cost more than needed. It would be a great choice for going from the battery to your amps as the smaller strands of copper are specially formulated for that purpose. But for going from the block to ground, and from the alternator to the battery - it's overkill. So if you have the cash, then go for it! The power delivery won't be any better than a standard cable under the hood, but it will be a bit less apt to induce unwanted noise. Plus you're getting it all from one place, so it's quick and easy.

Thanks! [ Francis Feb 25, 2014 ]
It seems good/capable enough. It is very flexible. That being said, I'd put it in some heat resistant techflex/wireloom to be on the safe side. [ Charles Feb 24, 2014 ]
I connected 1/0 power cable to a box out with 8 garage wire to two pioneer amps I think the 1/0 wire is able handle any power to any amp as long you use the fuze to handle the load [ STEVEN Feb 24, 2014 ]
Enter the length you need as the quantity in 1-foot increments. [ Jack Jul 25, 2015 ]
The wire is ordered in foot-long lengths. If you want a 10 foot length, order a quantity of 10. That gives you a single 10 foot long wire, not ten 1-foot long wires. [ Peter Jul 24, 2015 ]
Actually, you purchase it by the foot. So if you need 15 feet, use a quantity of 15. [ Steve Jul 24, 2015 ]
change the quantity amount to your desired length. [ PRIORITY SALES Jul 23, 2015 ]
It's sold by the foot. If your order 10 feet it will be 1 piece thats 10 feet long. [ Joseph Jul 23, 2015 ]
Add it your cart and then increase the qty. Each increase in qty gives you a foot. Qty. 3 = 3 Ft. [ Mark Jul 23, 2015 ]
Hello Ryan, The wire is ordered per foot. The "quantity" will be how many feet you need and they will send it to you precut to that length. [ ETHAN Jul 23, 2015 ]
YES if you put 1 in quantity you will only get a foot. Enter how many feet you need in quantity at check out. [ CHRISTOFER Jul 23, 2015 ]
