    You want to to check this is the audio forum but you will need a wire that can handle at least 50 amps

    I beleive an 8 gauge will fit the bill AND FUSE IT!

                            the total cost of all my wiring was around $250. That included the 20' of 1/0 wire and then 4 guage for my amps and 8 gauge for the opus and then speaker wire. I got it from http://www.knukonceptz.com/

                              $250?? Crap... I think I paid something like $40 for 20 feet of 4 gauge wiring. Are their power wires dipped in gold and insulated by some of Michelin's finest?
