    4 channel install help

    so i have a legit question.

    because i had a smaller amp before i only have an 8 gauge run to my 4 channel it is efc ofc wire.

    but the question is. since i will be running a mb quart onyx 4.60 that does 60x4@4 ohms and 120x4@2 ohms. will the 8 gauge be enough to support the front channels at 2 ohm and the rear at 4-8?

    it also has an inline 60a maxi fwiw

    then yeah you should be just fine with the wire you have. from what i figured your probably only looking at around 40 tops. dont remember what 8gauge is rated for though
