    factory speaker wire

    i'm going to be installing my system this weekend and i was thinking why buy speaker wire if i could just use the speaker wire from the factory speakers instead of running new wire.

    couldn't i do that?

    Depends on what gauge it is and how much power you plan on sending through them.

    If you haven't already, consult the Wiring Guide.

    The stock wiring will be fine for the new HU. Normally auto makers run 18-22 awg.
    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
