I need to upgrade my amp kit from 4 gauge to 0 gauge. I was wondering though If I can simply go to Home Depot and use that type of 0 gauge wire, or does it have to be for the car? Unlike most people, I actually run my AMP kit wire under the car, and I noticed 0 gauge from Home Depot has a flat black coating that matches the undercarriage. I know some of you are saying, why not run the wire through the car, and or, aren't you worried about fire? Its to thick, and I am worried that I will have issues with EMI and if the wire were to over heat, it will not burn inside the cabin. If its out side, I don't have to worry about EMI, nor do I have to worry about fire, if it does burn I can drive into a water puddle or the wind will blow it out. Not that it would ever burn in the first place. Also my truck is long, so the run is long. When I installed the 4 gauge kit, I had to buy 2 of them to reach from the engine to the back. Also my install is huge with so many speaker, USB and other cables already taking up most space.
No announcement yet.
Can regular 0 gauge wire work?
