    Amp wiring

    What size wire do I need to hook up an 800 watt amplifier to my battery? And what's the best way to run the wire through my car? I have an 84 Camaro. Thanks for your time and help.

    i think that 4 gauge will work good. as far as runnin it through your car run it down along the bottom of the doors. just take the plastic trim off and run it there. just keep it under the carpet so it looks good. hope this helps

    geonn has the best way. you will need 4g wire and along the doors is the best spot. you might be able to slide the wire under the trim that is there to make it a little easier. Run the power wire seperate from the others to stop unwanted noise.

    Those last guys have given you the best route to go for running your wire. From the engine compartment, find a factory grommeted hole (one the has rubber around it.) Carefully poke a hole in the rubber so that when you stick your wire through, there is rubber all around the wire to protect it from the metal of the firewall. BE SURE TO FUSE THE WIRE AS CLOSE TO THE BATTERY AS POSSIBLE!!

    There is no easy way to get it to the back, except under the carpet, close to the door sills. Be careful that the wire is not pinched anywere where it could rub away and make contact with the metal of the car.
