it won't have any effect on how hot the amp runs, but you'd be better off running 8 ga with that amp.

(your amp should be about 60% on efficiency)

well if its 300s, its probly 300 x 1 at 4 ohms, but just google it to find out. Also, if your cars lights dim at all, a higher gauge wire could help. I used to have 8 gauge wire ran to a 1000 watt amp and needless to say there were issues. So I changed it to 4 gauge wire and since then the lights haven't been dimming as bad. I think higher gauge wire helps the capacitors inside in the amp hold a current much better; thus less dimming in your lights.
