    If you're running over 1000 watts, you generally wanna get 0/1 awg wire. But I'm confused...why are you buying a 500w mono amp for 2 subs that RMS at 1000w each? And why are you getting an 1800w amp for 2 speakers that RMS at 80w each?

    JVC KD-HDR50
    (2) JVC CSHX647X 6.5-Inch 4-Way Coaxial Speakers, (2) Pioneer TS-G1642R 6.5" 180 watt peak 2-way speakers powered by Crunch P900.4
    Audioque SDC2.5 10" sub in a ported box - 1.6 cu ft powered by an Alpine MRP-M500
    Rockford Fosgate 4 Gauge wire to Konfused distro block, 8 gauge kolossus flex to both amps, 1 RF set of RCAs, 1 Knu set of RCAs

    I'm sorry, I read the Power Acoustik one wrong. 1800w is the max wattage, otherwise, it's 300w rms for each channel, which would be fine for those speakers but I'm not sure on the quality of the amp, others could tell you more about that. As for the RF amp - that is certainly a keeper, but if you're going to use it, I'd go for some 250w rms 4-ohm Single Voice Coil subs and wire them up at a 2-ohm load, which is basically just plugging each + into the one + slot and each - to the - for the speakers on the amp. If you're going to go this route, I would go for the Memphis Audio 10" or 12" PRs.
    10": http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...15-PR10S4.html
    12": http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...15-PR12S4.html

    I've got 2 of the 10" memphis subs and they are great, you will definitely enjoy them.
