I have an IDMax 12" and I'm not sure what size wires I should use from the speaker to the terminals, and from the terminals, to the amp. It's 1000w rms dvc. Any help is appreciated.

I had it installed in my old car, and when I took it out before I traded it in, I lost the wiring. Image Dynamics site was no help, and it's too hard finding the right results in "search". Thanks!

For speaker wire you don't need anything thick, 16awg would be more than sufficient.

yeah, because your amp inceases the voltage to make a lot of watts and you dont need very large wire because you dont have a lot of current going through the wires. i have 1600wrms and i use 14 gauge.
