About the Install Bay IBR98

Buck Pomerantz

Make connections

Install Bay's IBR98 18-gauge 2-conductor wire comes in handy when hooking up the power and ground connections for a low-power device like a signal processor, or when running dedicated speaker wiring from an amp to a speaker. The red and black insulation sleeves on the conductors help you keep the polarity correct at each end of the wire run. Warranty: 1 year.

Customer Q&A

2 questions already asked

Is there a Max rms rating it can handle for speakers?
[ Fabrice  Nov 20, 2022 ]
1 answer
This is a hotly debated topic, Fabrice! We have recently done some testing in our own Technical Support Team that has determined factory vehicle wiring (or similar 18-gauge OFC wiring like the install bay) can support up to 100-watts RMS with around a 2-3 percent loss due to the wire size. You are good to go with 18-gauge up to that 75 to 100-watt RMS mark for full range speakers. I hope this helps!
