    At least your 1500+ miles from me!

    To the OP,

    Here is the 5ch that is in my wife's car. Great bang for the buck amp.

    Hifonics Zeus ZXi60.4+1K 5-Channel Zeus Car Amplifier/Amp (ZXi 60.4+1K)
    Of course it has way more power than what you may be looking for but like I said, having extra head room to play with is a good thing.

    Just about any of the major name brands are good. Stay away from the "flea market" crap as 9 times out of 10, the wire gauges
    are not true.

    Also, get the right power/ground gauge for what you amp requires. The one thing you DONT want to do is choke off the amps
    power supply.

    honestly i dont pay more for 1 wire cuz it says kicker flex or w.e i dont buy wiring kits either, i buy a spool or have it cut off the spool for me (only thing i go into an audio shop for) i see wiring kits for like 100 bucks just 4 awg, its stupid, ive seen 30 ft spools on ebay for like 50 bucks and that was 1/0 but the cheapest way is bet a spool or whatever and get the connectors and everything from advance or napa, they wanted $9.50 for 2 4 awg terminals just cuz they said stinger on em...went to napa and bough sturdier solid terminals for 50 cents each.

    Re: newbie question

    That's makes sense. With the 10" sub which is 300 rms, a 5 channel amp, and the 4 infinity speakers, what gauge wires would u recommend?

    That would depend on the amp that you get.

    4ga should do just fine. I do believe that is what JL recommends for that amp.

    for me if its over 600 and under 1200 total watts rms i just go for 4 awg not needed but i like to do a little overkill on wiring, too big wont really hurt if everything is fused correctly too small will.

    Re: newbie question

    Also what kind of box should I use for the single 10 and 700/5 amp in a crx? I.e. sealed, ported, deep, slim, squareish, rectangleish?
