    What Gauge Wire???

    I need to know what gauge the internal wiring should be for my subs when I put them in their box. Each sub is rated at 200w RMS and 400w peak. Also, I might get more powerful speakers later on and I need a wire gauge that can accommodate the increased wattage going through it. Any help would be much appreciated.

    "I told her about my conversation three years ago with the political leader of Islamic Jihad in Gaza. "What's the difference between suicide, which the Koran condemns, and martyrdom?" I asked. "Suicide," he replied, "is done out of despair. But remember: most of our martyrs today were very successful in their earthly lives." In short, there was a future to live for--and they detonated it anyway."

    I personally run no less that 10 AWG wire, most cases it will work just fine. 12AWG will also work, however I would not reccomend using anything lighter on the subs side.
