    Id buy good Strand wiring from @mylows10, and get your cuz to help you install it, and get an install discount at the least.Mylows carries a better wire than that JL.Ive had JL, and not too fond of it.Cadence wire is so much better than that even,and not as expensive

    That's a load of bullcrap

    I have a 2006 Ion and the battery is in the back as well, and upgrading the wire WILL make a difference.

    I actually haven't even done the big 3, and I run a 140 amp alt with a yellowtop and have been safe up to 2k rms. You would be fine with your amp.

    I can cu the wire to any size but your kit would cost twice as much because or the. Long run of wire needed

    Re: HELP! what do i need...

    prolly get bashed for this, why not 2 or 3 runs of "0" gauge, cheap 0 gauge is usually like 2 gauge or beefy 4 gauge, recommended doing this with a friend of mine in a lincoln ls, main batt was in the trunk, we ran 3 cheap 0 gauge runs from the alt to the trunk, the place that sells cheap car audio power wire had "0" gauge for less than $2 a foot if you bought more than 15 feet
    he runs about 1800 rms his voltage drops to about 12.8-12.9, yes we 2 gauge welding cable to his amps, but your changing lines do have to be able to keep up, again im sure not too many people will like the idea of using 2 or 3 runs of cheaper wire but from how his system is keeping up i would recommend this if money is an issue...
