yeah I've seen people using 4 bit if you're doing a normal system is say like 12 for subs and 14 for mids high will be fine

I'm going to rewire everything when I get my new box, and I might go with 8 gauge. That's a good idea.

----------

I have some 14 gauge wire in there now.

Yeah I'll post pics of mine within the next few hours but I'm running 14 gauge for speakers and sub and 4 gauge for ground and power. Never hurts to be over prepared!

That's what I'm running on my L7s right now. Just nervous that I should go with larger speaker wire. 14 gauge will be fine for door speakers, but for L7s I'm a bit worried.

The only Kicker sub above the L7 is the Solo X.

I'm in need of more bass. Planning a new build. SA8 v2's? once I start my new job I'll be making progress towards that. This little 250W 10" just ain't cutting it anymore, haha. I'll probably throw it in my girlfriends car and get her some new speakers too. I'm hoping that I'll be able to switch the the sundowns, I really want to build my own box mainly lol.

"Tickling the ass crack to the people in the car next to you" bass is more fun.
