    So you think 4 gauge wire cannot carry 100 amps of power over a 3 foot run?

    Is that what you think?

    you should read these charts.

    Recommended Power and Ground Cable Sizes & Speaker Wire Size and Length

    4 gauge over 4 feet is rated at 1,400 watts ie 100 amps

    Stock Camry electrical will dim lights when you use power windows. For your purposes upgrade big 3 with #4 would be fine and a good improvement in general. Make sure your primary battery is solid and you'll be fine.

    ^^This. If you don't plan on going bigger. If you see yourself adding more down the road, do it in 1/0AWG. If you don't think you will upgrade, then 4AWG will definitely be sufficient.

    Re: Can my car handle these two amps?

    I dont think I'll really going to upgrade the sound system anymore in this car once I get the speakers amped. This my first car and I'm in college so the funds are limited right now. Next upgrade will probably be in a newer car will more high end audio. But I will keep in mind the 0/1 ga for when I want some serious power.

    I use to but then I upgraded because I realized the amount of power I was losing!............just joking I did it because it looked better the only real benefit is reduce impedance, wire has resistance and the larger the wire the lower resistance but not by much it matters on long runs but in short ones there's not a big difference and anything is an upgrade to the stock wiring as far as the charging system goes.
