    Icon32 Installing Infinity Kappa 63.7 with factory wiring? Is this ok?

    Hey guys, I was planning on running all new speaker wire through my Acura Integra to run my new kappas (6.5") off of my Alpine CDA-9813. I ordered all new wire but people on the Integra forums are telling me that it will be a waste of time and is unnecessary and that use the factory speaker wire. So here are my few questions......

    1. Will running the new thicker/higher quality speaker wire improve SQ at all?

    2. Will my Alpine CDA-9813 power 4 kappas fine?

    3. When the thicker upgraded speaker wire (16 or 14 gauge) connects to the back of the deck with 18 gauge wire does this defeat the purpose of using thicker/nicer speaker wire than the stock Integra wiring?

    I think you guys know what I am getting at. Thanks and let me know what you think!

    1- Very unlikely wired from the deck.

    2- Yes, but an amplifier would be much better.

    3- Yes.

    Ok, so factory wiring it is. Does anyone have any objections?

    Nope! Factory wiring works well with my Infinity speakers.
