    changing sub wiring??

    ok well, i just buaght an infinity kapppa, perfect 12.1 and im wondering somethingm, i wanted to hear it so badly but didnt have any good wiring... so i eneded up using 18 gage, to wire the sub to the box and the box to the amp... yea i know 18 gauge is very small for a sub that is 1400W, 350 rms, the amp is a V12 mrv 100, i must say though, this sub bumps really hard with the gains turned down even.... so im wondering what will happen if i change to like 10-14 gauge wiring for it all??


    PS: this sub does bump hard. and it is in a Bassworx 12 inch sealed encloser, what will it sound like if i put it in a 12 inch vented encloser? thanks

    The 18 awg will be fine for that application( low power+short run). I personally don't use anything smaller than 12 awg for subs.

    Yea I use to have on of those subs. It wont be any louder with different wire but it may still help with heat and such.
    A slot ported enlosure will make it a bit louder if built correctly but you will lose some SQ
