    Always go with what the instructions say. If you amps need 4 Ga. and you run 8 Ga. to them then they might be starving for power. If this happens, you amps might start to run hot and go into protection mode. Or stop working. Spend the extra $$. But there is really no need in running 4 Ga. wire if you electrical system can't handle the power demands of your amps. So make sure you have the power there then worry about getting the power to your amps.
