    Re: my sub just anit loud

    That is what I was thinking the whole time, but I was wondering now if I could run two different 4gauage wires to the amp at the same time. I think the size would make it come out to be 0 wire?

    and do not add on another 4 gauge....just upgrade to the biggest wire you have and save yourself the hassle in the future. also i'm running 1400-1500 rms thru 4 gauge and that's pushing it. anything over 2000 is just a fire hazard.

    upgrade your power/ground wire (make sure it's the same size!) to the biggest you can. you can use a distro block/wire reducer if you want to fit 4 gauge in and it'd be fine.

    upgrade the "big 3" (stickied in the wiring section).

    upgrade alt as a last resort.

    set your gains correctly not just maxxing them out. you'll damage both the sub and overdrive the amp.

    or let someone who knows what they're doing handle it.

    that is all.

    YES you can make 2 runs of 4 Awg wire, and it should be enough..
