So how many watts do you say the 10gauge will handle? 1000-1200? I didn't think that was possible since 10gauge is only rated for 30amps I thouight...

Wattage = Voltage x Amperage
or
Amperage = Wattage/Voltage

If you know what your wire is rated for, the math is quite simple at both 12.6V and 14.4V.

sounds like someone in this thread should do some more reading instead of posting. OP dont jump the big 3 over existing wires, replace them. i would love to see who uses 4k off of 12 gauge wire. i would never do that. smallest sub wire i go is 10 but i stick mainly with 8 gauge for subs. OP there is a big sticky thread on here with how to do the big 3
