    What gauge wire is that with your amp? It doesn't look very large in that picture.. I'm running 4-gauge with my 500W system. Once I get my WRX and if I get a bigger amp, I might run 0-gauge.

    That is 0 gauge Wire from Monster Cable.
    It was tough to bring more or less 30Kg of cable down to brazil,,my luggage was almost tearing appart with all the sound inside
    And counting the RCA Wires,,i have 700USD$ of cable.

    Ahh and just to let you know,,the Amp asks for 0 gauge wire and thats what i bought it for..
    But when i attached the 0 gauge to the fuse of the Amp,,the gauge was too thick and i needed to trim a little in the end.
    if i knew that i would have bought 2 gauge wire.

    Did you ever seen a sub enclosure of carbon fiber inside the spare tire with the spare tire still there?
    I wish someone could make one for me and sell it to me.
    thanks

    Tuca, why carbon fiber?? There is no advantage with Carbon fiber and a couple layers of fiberglass...

    Cause i will add a S8L7 Sub to hit there.Kicker =)
    Will i be able to have results solid as wood in fiberglass??
    I know with CF i will have a very rigid enclosure.

    As a general rule of thumb, 1/2" of fiberglass has about the same strength as 1" of MFD.
