  • Finally ready to install...one quick question.

    Today's the day that I install (or begin to install) my carputer in my car. I have everything ready to go, and the software where i want it. I still need power wire however. My question is, what gauge to get? I will powering my Carnetix CNX-P1260, along with my morex 3688, and T-View touchscreen monitor. I assume it won't need to be too awfully big, as the power wire on the Carnetix is rather small. Anyhow, what would you guys recommend?

    Thanks in advance,

    Chris

      8 awg is good for up to about 50 amps, or 600 watts. It'd work fine, of course, but you don't need it. 12 or 14 gauge will serve you fine (max 20 and 15 amps respectively, or 240 and 180 watts.)

      Don't forget to fuse!
