since its only 120rms an old lamp wire will do, but make sure u get one that has the turn on switch on the wire so it would work as a circuit breaker...

LOL Rovin.

2 channel amp bridged is perfect. My factory door speakers actually sound pretty good with my new headunit. I'm just missing some bass. The bass from the speakers don't cut it. LOL.

I'll post pics of the setup and progress when the sub and amp gets here.

Btw I'm trying to use the thinnest cable possible. I'm tired of running thick cables though my door trims and etc......

I'm thinking a 10 or 12 gauge might even work. LOL.

You could throw a coat hanger wire on it and you won't know the difference.

LOL.

10 GA it is.

i'm gonna be doing something I haven't done in over 5-6 years. I'm gonna be building a small sealed box for the 8" sub I just bought. LOL. It's gonna be fun.
