Hi frequency switching

4 6gauge cables might be better for B+ and B- (4 each). It's easier to find small lugs with small holes than big lugs with small holes.
If you are using 3 sets of IGBTs, at 8 Khz, I think you may be able to alternate the switching - U+, V- ... V+, W- .... W+, U- ... at 24 khz (higher than I can hear) for a 'silent' mode? Dogs may not like it much, but I think I would

There would be 3X heat since you are switching 3X as often, so it would be *BAD* for heavy acceleration. But it may be good for cruising?

Just a random thought ...
