    Re: Wire gauge help

    You want 0ga with an amp like that, especially if you intend on adding a separate amp for you cabin speakers. For the subs, you can wire them to either 1ohm or 4ohm. 1ohm is going to max out the power of that amp, but at the expense of more work on your electrical.



    Deck: JVC KD-A95BT
    Speakers: PHD FB mid, JBL MS tweets
    Amps: Boston Acoustics GT-2125, Zed Minotaur III (x2)
    Sub: 10" SSA ICON, IA Death Penalty 18" (coming soon)
    Starr Mountain Sound Nuthugger #2 (I'm a #2 lol)
