    Icon14 HELP ! Changing Wire Gauge

    Hey I'm running 2 cerwin-vega HED 12's on an alpine mrv t320 amp. I had my original system installed with a 10 gauge wiring kit. I wanted to know if I want to change the wiring to 8 gauge which i think will slightly increase performance, do i only need to change the speaker wiring from the amp to the subs themselves or the entire wiring kit to the amp ?

    You would need to change the amp's power and ground wire. What's the RMS on your amp?

    The Alpine amp has a 2*80 watts rms but I have the amp bridged and its doing 210 rms. But i know that the amp is underrated for sure, because its really pumping hard on 2 cerwin vega 12's. So would it matter if i changed the gauge to 8 gauge or not ?

    I seriously doubt there would be any audible difference.
