I don't know about you guys but, I've never been shocked by speaker wire! I guess my tolerance level is a lot higher.

(I)Amps=Current - Kills you

(V)Volts=Pressure of electricity

(P)Watts=Power

®Resistance=ohms

(L)Inductance

(F)Farads=Capacitance

WTF!!! That **** hurt.. just 300 watts, I would hate to feel it with 1200watts
Felt equivelent to a 120volt

While Im here, what really is watts? What voltage/amperage?
Watts is the combination (product) of volts times amps.

300 watts into 4 ohms is about 35 volts. You can feel that (as you found out).

Ac is 110 volts, this will possibly knock you down most likely only sting alittle. Now my fish tank lights run off of 220volts this will literally make you bleed if you accidently get them wet. 12 volts shouldnt do any thing to you unless there is 100 amps running threw it as well!!!

I'd be willing to pay for a quality HU, if it meant that I can truly get the sound quality I need. I've seen some aftermarket ones that look really nice, again I don't know much more, I wouldn't...

You could do the 8" as a front sub on its own amp and use it to bridge/enhance the gap between your 12" in the rear to the midranges
