OK so I got a budget set up for now. I have some 14 awg speaker wire on the way but for now I'm hooked up with something I had laying around from home audio installs. It is possibly 22 gauge. I was tinkering with the amp earlier and noticed that the speaker wires are getting super hot! Is this normal? Should I wait until my 14 gets here to even use my sub? Speaker wire is only about 1ft for the run. Rockville k9 wired to 1 ohm (yes I know it won't handle the rating and have the gain turned way down). I have never experienced hot speaker wire before no matter what I was pushing. Curious about this. Looking forward to hearing from you.

I know I'm new to this but I love bass. I always had the cash to pay someone to install in the past. I have stepped it up and ordered some 10 gauge. I thought for a short run it would work but I was bad wrong. I'll be without until my package comes :(
