Hook-up wire (1500V 6A) PVC

Ideal for heater supplies on high power amps, or internal wiring for speakers

This hook-up wire is intended for high-current circuits in the amplifier (or within a speaker cab). It’s PVC insulated and I stock the red and black colours that are most typical in 6.3V heater supplies.


Dimensions & info

The cable’s overall diameter – including the insulation – is 2.6mm. The wire is stranded (32 separate copper wires). The insulation is PVC. At 1500V and 6A, its ratings are more than enough for any part of a valve amplifier circuit.


Note that this wire is fairly thick and it can be a nightmare trying to get two wires into smaller solder lugs (e.g. those on 9-pin valve sockets). You might like to consider the far superior PTFE (Teflon) wire for these connections. This cable is priced per metre (just over 3ft).



Amp Maker is now closed for the 2020 Christmas holiday, and will re-open in early 2021. See News section for details.
