    wiring kit

    So, I'm looking for a wiring kit for my two amps:
    Alpine MRD-M605 - fuse rating 30A X 2
    Alpine MRP-F250 - fuse rating 15A X 2

    Which wiring kit should I get? 4 or 8 guage? Also, for the 250 crutchfield recommends a 10-gauge power and ground leads kit and a 8 guage for the 605. Do I need to get two different kits? Also, do I need a kit with a fuse rating over 60?

    Thanks for your help guys, as you can tell I'm a total idiot when it comes to this stuff.

    It's been a few years since I've messed with this stuff, but I dont think you can go too thick with wires, but you CAN go too thin. So you can just use the thicker power/ground leads on both of them, even though one recommends a thinner kit. Just don't use a THINNER wire than what's recommended.

    Use 4 ga. for sure. You could run a 10 and an 8, but you'll need 2 fuse holders by the battery. If you run 4 ga. you'll need just 1 fuse up front, but will need a distro block in the back. That way if you ever buy bigger amps you'll still have proper size wire to run them. Stinger makes a nice 4 ga. kit. JL audio has a nice 2 ga. kit, but its a little on the pricey side. The JL kit comes with a distro block and the stinger does not.
