    umm how much power are you giving it? Regardless 14 is wayy to small i would never consider that for any amount of power. I mean **** go down to walmart and get the 8 gauge at least for like $20 lol

    Not that easy my man. I go to school 40hrs a week and get 200 a week for unemployment. I am not in a situation that I can just drive 35minutes to the city and buy a spool of 10g wire. Its bad enough I took money from my phone bill to pay for the difference for this amp.

    in that case, assuming the woofer is dual 2, i would do two runs of 14awg to each coil
