NO, kicker wire is copper with silver coating. Silver is the best conducter with copper being the 2nd. The copper clad aluminum stuff is way cheaper.

An I don't know if u can find it. Kicker makes the best wire thay don't make 4/0
4 runs of 1/0 will take more amps than 1 run of 4/0

6 runs of 4/0 would be the same electrically as 18 runs of 1/0, I didn't count how many are in the picture, one run of 4/0 will carry the same as 3 runs of 1/0. You get marine grade once you get that big. And it is solid copper stranded too.

One other thing you also have to consider with wire, is what is it's purpose, straight up SPL, just a few second high current pulls, or street beat, various amounts of current change at different levels constantly changing. When considering the purpose, each will have a different effect on the wire, heat, is your enemy. Alum will shed the heat faster and at a greater rate then copper or silver.
