    Need Wiriing help

    Im gonna use 2 amps in my car one is a 500.1 jl mono amp and the other will be some 4 channel amp that will be probably 60-75 rms a channel. Im gonna use all 4 for my speakers. Can i use different gauge wires say 4 gauge from the battery to the distribution block then 8gauge to the amps. same for the ground. What gauge wires should i use for everything.

    imo i would go 1/0 and then distribute that using 4 gauge wire. there is nothing better than a little bit of a buffer.



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage
