welding cable vs cadence big 3

Just thought I'd ask if anybody is running welding cable for their big 3?
what are your thoughts

I'm in a debate between this welding cable
#1 Welding Cable (by the foot) | Princess Auto

and Cadence 0 gauge
Audio Savings | Cadence 0G100-BLUE 0 AWG Gauge 17 Feet Car Amp Power Wire Cool Cable Technology

Apparently from internet reviews people are saying this Cadence wire CCA

ill be upgrading to a high output alternator as well at somepoint

I run welding cable for pwr and earth (pretty sure it only goes upto around 4 gauge tho) so if your needing biger than that, your best spending the coin and getting proper cca 0 gauge audio cable (lots of brands make it)

Okay okay, topic moved

And of those two I would use the welding cable - it's copper, not CCA.

If its just for the Big 3 get the cheapest you won't notice a difference. Just remember though welding cable is not as flexible compared to audio cable.

I got welding cable 1/0 gauge, 25% off the 10 feet came out to 30 bucks, and its actually more flexible then the 0 gauge cadence wire I got, the welding cable is rated 260 amps lol I wont be pulling no where near that, so all good, I kinda wish I bought the welding cable for power cable rather then the cadence kit, but ah well the blue looks good, ill be pumping today, picking up the proper wire harness for my deck
