    Wheres a good place to go for wireing?

    -sup; I'm upgrading my audio system in my car and just want your opinion on a place to go for car audio wireing. What i'm looking for are power, ground, and turn-on-lead wireing. Also looking for gold plated connectors (none of that cheap plastic stuff that i could find at the auto parts store or home remodeling centers).

    I have a 96amp alternatore, and will mount my 300 watt RMS amplifier in the trunk that will power a sub. Thats the only amp i will have in my car since my front speackers are 3.5" kappas and my high power reciever will power them just fine. My point is that i believe 4 gauge power/ground wires are the way to go, but would 8 gauge do just fine?

    I second KnuKonceptz. Great product, great price, fast shipping. Just a great place to deal with.

    http://www.knuconceptz.com/

    or

    http://www.partsexpress.com/

    Both have good per-foot pricing. Knuconceptz has interesting colors and translucent insulation, etc.

    Parts Express has your basic black and red solid-color insulated wire in almost any gauge imaginable from 18 gauge to 1/0 gauge.

    I have some Knuconceptz stuff for my installation, but I got my wire from Parts Express simply because I wanted the basic red/black insulation.

    8 would be plenty, but if you ever decided to upgrade you wouldn't have much room. I 2nd the wal-mart suggestion. Perfectly good kits as cheap as the on-line stores.
