Any wiring. To be completely honest the wires in my sub box are electrical wiring for a house Just make sure it's the right gauge for the power your going to be pushing.

It should say it on the package. If you mean what gauge you need then I would google it. How much power are you pushing? How many watts?

Take total Watts of amplifier divided by applied voltage (14.4VDC) = amperage needed to run the thing. Example - 600 Watts/14.4VDC=41.6666666, rounded up to 42 Amps. Get wire rated for 50 Amps.

No. In fact, it would be better. In theory...

That calculation is for minimum requirements. There comes a point where you are overspending though.

Haha. Lucky. Well the snow is fun, the salt on the roads is not fun at all.

And almost everyone who lives down south wants to see snow or be somewhere where it's cold and everyone in the north wants it to be warm. Never happy

Yea my friend bought a 70 and its hard to find parts.

Im supposed to be putting 1-tons and 37s or 40s under it, stretching it without a comp cut. Also im changing it to power brakes, power steering, turbo 350 swap w/ a 205 tcase, moving the gas tank, and either xj springs or a long arm conversion or a tj frame swap. Thats just part of the list.

Flagstaff, AZ, or Spokane, WA. Both are freezing in winter and crazy hot in the summer. Perfect weather.
