go with 0/1 awg to the amp, 4 gauge for the ground and 10 to 12 to the speakers. it is hard getting 10 gauge to fit in the subs terminals and the boxes terminals

woah, do not do what hunter said, do not run 0/1ga power and 4ga ground, you need to run the same size power and ground wire for it to actually be effective. As for speakers, 12ga would more then surfice anything bigger is just overkill....
