    Glanced around the forum but didn't see a direct answer to my question.

    Ordered a JL Audio HD600/4 on ebay and it's coming in on Thurs hopefully....have a Mr Marv box in the process of being made as well :D but I've been searching around looking at different 4 gauge wire kits and crutchfield seems to focus on the EFX (which apparently is Scoche?) kits....Mr. Marv's guide used Rockford wires....and on Amazon there's this Stinger kit:

    http://www.amazon.com/Stinger-Gauge...MG/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1300150579&sr=8-14

    I guess my main question is besides the copper clad vs oxygen free copper debate is there anything to consider? If it doesn't really matter what kit I buy as long as it's solid copper then I guess it makes my choice easier.

    Setup is going to be a single 10 Arc Audio sub / 6.5 HAT Clarus up front and I'm just going to run the rear speakers off of the HU. Thanks!

    Strand count will determine its flexibility. I used the Stinger kit. Its excellent. Kicker is more flexible... too flexible if you need any rigidity to help routing. You will be happy with the Stinger kit.

    Thanks for the help! Went ahead and ordered that kit....was a good price. Picked up some 50A fuses while I was at it as well.

    For future reference for other users - Check out KnuKonceptz.com

    I have used EFX, Monster, Knu, RF, and a couple others, and find Knu to be a great value, good product.
    Nothing wrong with the Stinger, of course!
