    Default Are These Junk Power Cables?

    Volex 17604 14 gauge shielded power cords . . . . fyi, I know next to nothing about power cables. The stock Volex came with "the good" ICE powered EVS 500M amps

    Stock is always a bare minimum acceptable standard, like "building code" . . . . I'm ready to throw a couple of hundred into the kitty, maybe more if I'm pleasantly surprised with their performance
    How much should I expect to spend on "significantly noticeable improvement" power cords . . .

    Brand suggestions?

    Background history, I purchased the amps 6 months ago knowing that my non-air conditioned house would be unbearable with the small space heater known as Adcom 5802 (450 watts into 4 ohms). The ICE amps are going to be in full swing this week. 90 degrees all week long!


    THANKS! Guys & Dolls

    ps I do have a couple of strategically placed window-shakers to take the edge off. Alas, no competition for the 5802!! That sucker runs HOT!

    The Volex 17604 is a very nice well documented shielded cable. I would look for other places to spend my money.

    The older PS Audio Punch cords are a great value used, and can usually be had for under $50 each.

    How long of a power cord(s) are you looking for?

    Thanks for the link, but I'll pass on that ad since I'll need 2 identical for the mono blocks . . . I think 1 meter (or more) should do it

    Thanks guys!!
