    Need help with wiring and installation

    I'm a noob to car audio so forgive my dumb questions. I know this isn't the best set up but most of it was a gift and it's not that bad for a first system I suppose. I have no idea what size wiring and everything else that I need to install the stuff below. It's going into a 1994 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi. Also, will I need more power or am I okay with my current battery?

    looks aite for a first setup mang...you should run it and see if you're getting significant power loss...if you are getting significant power loss then you should do a big 3 or get a new battery...you can run 4 or 8 guages to the amp...



    Bought from: IS_250, nismos14, chaunb3400, tweet02, dadon, IonSQL, lslugz, dye4metal, RetroAudioinc

    It doesn't matter if it's 4 or 8? Also, any names I should look for/stay away from?

    Re: Need help with wiring and installation

    I would run 4 gauge, some people might tell you to run 1/0 gauge, but only do that if you seriously intend on upgrading to larger amps in the future. In my older setup. I ran the A800T pretty good little amp for the price, I ran it at 1.5 ohms for over a year, worked like a champ until the day i unhooked it.

    I'm assuming this wiring kit would work fine?
