I am looking to upgrade from the stock cable. Any preferences on PC for the A370 servo amp? Thanks.

I was able to get some hospital grade power cords for mine. Nothing fancy but more robust and with beefier, more solid connectors.

I made my power cords using Marinco plugs (Parts Express) and 12/3 cable from the local hardware store.

No need for anything special. A Pangea power cord is sufficient.

Early B  thats exactly what i was going to purchase.  :thumb: From what I can see it doesn't pay to go too crazy with very expensive PC on the sub amp.

I am using the Pangea 9 awg cords on the HX800's with very good results.

Save your money and put better cords on source components and your main amp. That's my take.....

Fun cables to route too !!  Great cables for the buck   though
We have an excess of  PC's so  I'm  using a pair of  Marigo Audio Ultra 5's   for my subs. I  do run all my cables through the   Pi  MiniBuss

Mine are coming from the PI BlunderBUSS to the HX800's.   Got lots of Dave's BUSS products for AC power.

Is that  the monster you had custom  built  by Dave ?   
I'm  going to eventually have him build me a  hard wired in and out  Uber to feed  the  mini.  I've run Don's  Uber  in front of the  mini in the past  and  like the results :)

Sorry for the  hijack jimbones but  it's   related, Dave's Busses are great  products IMHO

Jay,
Yes, it is the 24 outlet UberBUSS version.  Dave calls it the BlunderBUSS!  :thumb:

Me, too. My A370's are hooked up to a non-outlet UberBuss connected to a MiniBuss. So guess I have a "DoubleBuss."

From what  I heard when mine was configed like this, it's all good  Early  !!

Yep. The non-outlet Uber is tethered on both ends, so fewer power cords needed. I have one of Dave's (the other Dave) custom SurgeX's in front of them. I learned that stacking power conditioning makes a good thing even better.

I use a pair of Triode Wire labs "American 8s" that I picked up used in the trading post here. I like the ease of running the TWL wire and I do think that they help the bass response (I get the impression of an additional "tightness" and slightly more extension) vs. the stock PCs. I've seen some good deals on TWL cables on AC. Worth looking out for. I also run Dave's PC to a MiniBuss and a 8+ to my tube amp. I'm slowly upgrading all my PCs to TWLs.
