    whats the best way to wire this setup

    how do you think i should wire this setup? i have a 4 channel 1000 watt pyle amp,
    2 10" kicker comps, and two 6 x 9 rockfords that i was gonna hook up. the hu is a pioneer deh16. do you think i would need a cap? is 4 gauge good enough for amp kit? many more questions but thatll be later. any response is greatly appreciated.

    -to wire that up:
    -2 channels low passed(assuming that amp has a low pass crossover) into the subs, one sub for one channel on the amp.
    -2 channels high passed(assuming the amp has a high pass crossover also) into the rockfords, one speaker for one channel
    -4ga is fine. Actually 8ga will be fine most likely if you want. But you MAY WANT to upgrade in the future, so put in 4gauge
    -You WON"T need a cap.

    That 1000watt Pyle amp in reality is probably less then 250watts RMS total power so a cap will definitly not be needed.
    Bridge the rear channels for the subs and run the 6x9s off the two remaining channels.
    The 4gauge wire will be plenty for that amp.

    Re: whats the best way to wire this setup

    You can bridge the rear channel but then he'd have to run the subs into a series 8ohm load(i'm assuming the subs are 4ohm) on the amp, is that the same as running a 2 channel 4ohm load into each sub?

    -Are the subs 8ohm or 4ohm?
