    Kinda depends on what your speakers can fit for wire. If you have quick disconnects, you can go as high as you want and some people go way overboard and do 8ga on subs and 10-12ga on speakers. If you have spring terminals, you're limited to max gauge on those. But it's a common misconception that you need fat-ass wire for speakers (subs, different story). 14ga for everything up to the 8" should do you fine and I'd say 10ga for any drivers larger than that. You're talking about A/C current here, not limited like D/C power wire.

    As for brands, take your pic. Most people get what looks best. Execution audio has great deals on their eBay store right now (who cares that it's CCA...again doesn't matter). Sky High makes decently-priced OFC. Knu has always made great wire for cheap. Can't really lose here unless you start going for brands that are known to improperly size their wire (InstallBay 14ga labeled as 12ga, for example).



    Deck: JVC KD-A95BT
    Speakers: PHD FB mid, JBL MS tweets
