Just picked up a Skar audio Evl package which includes 

12” 2ohm DVC 1250w rms

RP1500.1D amp (1ohm 1500w 2ohm 930w)

single 12 enclosure

4ga wiring kit 

The subwoofer came preloaded and wired for a 1ohm setup (I was told). 

My concern is the speaker wire they provided to run from the amp to the sub is only 16ga. Last time I put a system together I used 12ga wires for a single 10” 800w sub. 

Should I chuck this 16ga wire and go get 10 or 12? Or will this 16 be enough? I’m assuming it’s wired inside the box with 16ga as well.

Recommend larger speaker wire for sure.  And probably a good idea to check the internal box wiring also.  I agree with you that 12AWG is preferred.
