Binz,u should be able to perceive the difference.If its not so,why would experts recommend it?

High end wiring is must for high end system having components,multi-ch amp and subw for better results.

When i ask if "I" will be able to perceive the difference its because I have listened to audio all through my life on stock car speakers,with an oem hu.
To me,ice is a relatively new thing.Anyway I dont want to hijack this thread further so i waill just w8 patiently for my answer

HA HA ! I PMed you, besides the percievable difference depends on what system you are running, also if you are running a Subwoofer (which i am sure you are) that Boss wiring kit's (12Ga) power wire is not doing justice to the amp's needs, the things which are at danger (other than SQ) is also your subwoofer, if it does not get optimum power it will start Bottoming out and has chances of blowing if the voltage drops too much, also the wiring you currently have will overheat and you can blow something in the amp too, this is not to scare you, check with the older guys on the forum, they will tell you the same thing.
Cheers.

When i said u will be able to..i really meant 'u' even if u have listened to audio all through ur life on stock car spk and OEM HU.

U forgot to read my 2nd line and also forgot to read whats in-between the lines,TN Sheshan could read it...

Ron explained what i meant in 2nd sentence......

Anyway sorry to bug you guys again,but will I be able to notice the difference in the SQ while using boss and a better brand?
THis is just for clarification,will be goin in for new cabling by the end of next week

Binz, there's one small thing I can't resist adding here. I saw some comments that "8 gauge boss cable with the core area of a 12 gauge or 16 gauge or something".

Strange as it may sound, I have seen some counterfeit Boss in some places (yeah, whoever's doing that sure needs to get a life, really bad!). None went to the extent of having 16-ga cables packaged as 8-ga. So maybe I haven't seen those ones.

In the real Boss (sheesh, that's like the biggest antithesis of all times ), the power cable isn't really too bad. It's bad alright, but not like so bad that it's rendered useless. And it sure enough has as much metallic masala in it as regular 8-ga cables. The inline fuse holder, AGU fuse, and the rest of the hardware is also tidy. It's worth it if you can buy it REAL cheap. Else go for better brands, there is a choice right?

The RCAs are messed up. And the speaker wire is also very faecal. I'd say, buy loose power cable and fuse-holder/ fuse, and get some good RCA cables and speaker wire and you wouldnt have to worry much.

hmm..929 gave me info about the jl audio wiring kit.Lets see what happens.

Anyway you a fan of phoebes "smelly cat song"...theres a thread on that in the shifting gears section 3rd last page.

1. Skin effect has a partial effect on the toanlity of the wire and even less effect on the impedance. I was refering to Tonality.

2. Multistrand cables reduce skin effect at the cost of raising other issues. proper cable design be if multistrand or solid core is required to make a cable that is devoid of not only skin effect but are also electrically and mechanically stable (some issues considered are cable core geometry, inter cable dielectric, cable's impednace (or reactance), etc..).

High capacitance is potentially one of the most deleterious properties of an audio interconnect. Low capacitance is achieved through the use of small diameter conductors, large conductor spacing, and low overall dielectric constants. The trick is to accomplish all of this without compromising the mechanical integrity of the cable, or creating other problems.

In addition different materials have slightly different sonic properties. Gold, Sliver, Carbon, Titanium, OFC (Oxegeon Free Copper).

However we might want to discuss this on antoher forum.

Oh that formality!! I thought he was talking about formaldehyde! Someone I figured RON was refering to my "experiments" with chemicals as a teen. :-)
