Hey, I guess I should have paid more attention before i got my sub, but i just got a 10" comp vr and mtx 2301 amp. What gauge speaker wire should i run from the sub to amp? Thank you for any help

14 or 16 gauge will be fine. Speaker wire isn't as crucial as power and ground wire.

I was thinking that 12 gauge would work, but didnt want to use it unless i was sure

12 is more than big enough. 12 is fine to show off, but it won't sound any different than 16AWG really.

you're dealing with high voltage AC here, not high current DC, like for power cables, so you don't tend to build heat in the same manner.. thus smaller wire works fine.

Dude, don't listen to the uppity mofos in here. You 10" comp vr will be just fine.

That really didn't make any sense richard. We helped him, told him he's fine, and he thanked us. This thread should be dead.
