    Which amp kit to buy? Please help

    So heres what Im powering, please let me know if the higher stuff is necessary

    PDX 1.600 amp
    PDX 4.100 amp

    Powering 12" JL W6 and set of PG RSD6.5 comps.

    Looking at sets from Kicker and JL Audio
    Kicker PKD4 - $65shipped 4g main with 8g from dist block to amps. 8g ground
    Kicker PKD1 - $130shipped 1g main with 4g from dist block to amps. 4g ground
    JL XB-PCS4-2 - $100shipped 4g main (for all). 4g ground


    Will I be okay with the cheapest one here? Id like a little wiggle room for the future, however one of my biggest concerns (not so much the price although saving $65 is nice) but that the 1g will be inflexible and hard to work with. Also (I realize this may be dumb) but I like the JL Audio flat red color of the power wire which goes better with my engine bay.

    Anyhow, thoughts on this? Also any other comparable suggestions?
    Thanks guys!

    On a side note I need to get a set of RCAs for the speakers, suggestions/places to buy?

    sorry if the way I wrote it was confusing.

    PDX 1.600 is for the 12" W6
    PDX 4.100 is for the RSDs. I will bridge to make 2 channels.

    Hmm they dont seem to have a dual amp kit. So Id need a distribution block, suggestions?

    Also I see you can select the fuse size, how do I go about selecting which fuse size?
    Thanks

    depending on the vehicle, 4 ga is more than enough, 4 gauge can handle 1000w at a 17 foot run, but 1/0 will give you ability to upgrade in the future. If you get a 4 ga kit get one from knukoncepts otherwise get the kicker 1/0

    If you dont plan on going to bigger amps later just get a 4 ga dual amp kit made by Kicker.
