    what gauge wire hook up

    yo guys, im thinking of adding another 1600w max amp and right now i have an8 gauge wire hook up i asked the local car audio store and they said i should use a 2 gauge wire and splint into four gauge.. didnt think it would matter if i used 4 and split into 8 ..but all this wire is so expensive ..do i acutally have to use wire made just for this stuff thats like 2.50 a foot or can i go to a hardware store and by 2 gauge threaded wire for like 30cents a foot think it would matter?..one more questionlol do i need two seperate distribution boxes for ground and power ???
    --thank you if you are able to answer my bagillion #of questions appreciated

    Wire is wire is what he meant to say.
    2.50 for 2 ga is a ripoff.
    Just make shure that that $.30 wire is flexible and has alof of strands.
    If its not flexible and has big strands you need to find another place
