    remote can be 20+ gauge and not be a problem.

    If the manufacturer put 4 gauge terminals on the amp, I'm pretty sure the amp will run on 4 gauge.

    Re: hifonics 1606d power wire gauge

    well maybe it doesnt use the full fuse rating,cuz 4 gauge is just not gonna hold 160 amps unless its 12-13 ft.and i dont see a 1600 watt amp using that much power unless its very underrated or very unificent,and 16 awg remote wire is fine
