wireing depends on length and amp draw.
amp draw is figured out like this
total watts using/12.6 volt electrical system = amps drawn
usually power wire runs go around 16-19 feet depending on your car. and for that length, it goes as follows:
0-20 amps - 8AWG
20-35 amps - 6AWG
35-65 amps - 4AWG
65 - 105 amps - 2AWG
105 - 150 amps - 0AWG
(info from MECP installer cable calculator chart)

the shorter the run of wire, the smaller the gauge you can use, the longer the thicker

hope this helps
