    Sub To Amp Wiring

    so what kind of wiring do you use to wire the sub's to your amp?
    is it speaker wire?

    last install was done by a "professional" and i want to do this one myself

    if it is speaker wire, what guage should i use? its two 12" type R's going to be getting 400rms each
