I'm gonna be powering (2) 6x9's and (2) 6 inch door speakers with an amp. Can i use regular 16ga wire from the amp or should i go heavier?
Sorry for such a n00b question.:nerd:

Kinda depends on the wattage that you plan to run to em but generally 16ga is fine for almost anything.

for speaker applications because generally not more than ~200 watts is used 16 gauge works just fine, but if running high wattage like with most sub setups a larger gauge should be used
