    Wire Gauge?

    I'm going to rewire my car stereo system and I was wondering which wire gauges you would reccomend. The Car is a 1987 Toyota Camry.

    Thanks

    16 gauge is the smallest I would go for, unless its for tweeters. Some may say that thinner wires for tweeters gives a better response. But in that case alone, I wouldnt go any less than 20 gauge.

    18-16ga works for most of it, if you look at a factory hook up thats pretty normal
