    Icon32 Wat Gauge Wire For My amp?

    Hi all,

    I was wondering wat size power wire i should use with my amp...

    its a Sony XMD500X crutchfield recommends 4 guage, so i bought a four gauge wiring kit. I then found out that the ring terminals dont fit into the slots provided. Should i get a smaller power wire or should i keep the four gauge and get some smaller ring terminals?

    Help Please!!!

    I would probably just pick up a dist block and run the 4 into 2 8's. 8 should be plenty and then you have another line if you want to upgrade to add an additional amp.
