I have the 4-Channel already installed already but with only 8-Gauge power running right now.
How big do I need to go to be optimal? Will 4-Gauge do the trick?
Can I tie the remote turn-on from my current 4-Channel amp into the Mono amp as well?
What brand is the best and where is the best place to find it?
Best Buy install kits are rather expensive and I've seen some other cheaper ones but have seen mixed reviews on them.
I haven't bought the amp or subs yet. I ordered the box from Tech12Volt on Wednesday.
I get confused how the amps break down. The optimal levels for the subs are 300W RMS at 4-Ohms correct? The amp says it runs 300W RMS x1 at 4-Ohms. So does that mean I'm sitting at like half the optimal power for two?
OK good. I thought it seemed right but you made me second guess myself there for a while I was planning on ordering the subs and amp this weekend and trying to pick up the wiring kit and getting it installed sometime this coming week before the box got here so I could just kinda plug everything in as the parts came.
For parallel, that just means both positives and negatives from each sub will go together onto the single channel on the amplifier right? And since they are single voice coil subs, it drops it down to 2 ohms right?
i did some searching and there are a few power wire kits on amazon for around 100-120 that are acceptable quality...
there is a cadence one that is cheap as hell for a supposed 0 ga kit, i would actually order it just to check it out but my amazon prime was up as of 1hour10minutes ago lol.
it looks legit, but the price is tooooo cheap imo, but i would consider ordering it cuz with amazon if its not as stated you can ship back free.
there is a tsunami kit also, it includes 0ga, and 4ga and a power and ground dist block, its for multiple amps. that one is trustable, tsunami used to be what circuit city carried and it looked like good quality when i had shopped their... its not as flexible as the jl, streetwires, stinger, or kicker wire, but as long as its warm out its not too bad running stiffer 0ga.
stinger is good wire, about the same as streetwires, good quality.
You can try a welding supply for you power wire. They carry big wire with tiny strands so it's easier to bend the wire. Works just as good or better than the audio branded stuff. They sell it by the foot. Though the welding stuff comes only in black.
