    depends on what kind of car you have for how much u need and where the amps are....but i would probably go w/ 4 ga power and ground wire, probably 14gauge remote wire, and 10 gauge wire for your speakers....the ground wire shouldnt be longer than 18".... you'll need a fuse about 6-12" from the batt....and i personally like to have a switch on the power wire so i can turnt he amp on and off if i so choose......and you can get the wire at any walmart or local hardware store......no point in spending large amounts of money on a name brand of wire....almost all wire is the same....good luck hope i helped.....if you have any more quesitons feel free to post them....good luck
