There are many different brands, colors, lengths, and gauge sizes when it comes to power & ground cable, but they all serve the same purpose; to transfer electrical current from the vehicles battery or alternator to any installed audio amplifiers. When choosing power & ground cable to use in your vehicle, you should always go with the American Wire Gauge (AWG) rated cables. AWG cables are true-to-gauge, which means the gauge size is determined by the diameter of the copper wiring only. It is easy to tell the difference between AWG cable and non AWG cable, take a look at the ratio between the protective jacket and the copper wiring, non AWG cable will have very thick jackets and less of the copper, which means in most cases it is not the actual gauge size that’s advertised. Below I will provide information on 3 AWG power & ground cables you should think about using for your sound system.
