    wire gauge

    On ebay they have an earthquake 4 gauge wire kit that they are saying handles 4000 watts. Is that possible?

    The 12 volt has a brief diagram on how much current can go through a wire according to lenth and thickness:

    Re: wire gauge

    You would need at least 1/0 to pull 4000 watts.




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.
