Man this thread takes me back to 1990.. wiring up a Kenwood 1021 in a buddies Escort with some Kicker Competition SS10's. Dammit I feel old now. Thanks!
Completely untrue. Wires transmit power in the form of electricity. Wires have a limit on how much power they can transmit. For Example ...fuzzysig said:just fyi. home wires are made for high voltage low amperage (110 volts, 5-10 amps)
car wires are made for low voltage high amperage(14 volts 60-120 amps)
normally you should follow the amplifier's recommended specs for wiring depending on how many amps it needs
unless you want to have melted wires and possibly fire or just never play bass through those speakers.
you can find power wire almost 100% guarantee at any junkyard for like 5 bucks with the proper fuse.
so for everyone else who is installing an amp don't use house wires lol.
