    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...

    Re: speaker wire & battery help?

    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.

    Re: speaker wire & battery help?

    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
