what size speaker wire do you guy's normally run for your subs? i was just woundering because i just bought a DD9515G recently.

so should i stick with the wire size that it already has, or can i just use some 8 awg power wire to extend the leads to the amp? that's all i have laying around.

couldn't hurt, right?

Stick with what they gave you, which is generally 12AWG.

If it won't reach, then an 8ga extender will work if you attach it correctly, but just remember it is like placing a garden hose inside a fire hose -- the water will have more room to flow, but it's the same amount of water.

alright, and yeah it's 10 agw, and it was used. so there's only about 10 inches of wire left off the sub, if that.

what is the proper way to attach it?

and also, that was a pretty good way of explaining it, lol

10 awg is what comes on those subs and you will never need any bigger than that.
