    I am using 4 guage wire for my power, 8 guage for my ground, 18 guage for my speakers, and 24 guage for my tweeters. Does that sound all right? My equipment is Infinity Kappa Perfect 6.1, Infinity 6x9's, and a 600watt MTX 4 channel amp.

    you need to use the same guage wire for your power and ground. i would use 16ga for speakers, and 20ga for tweeters.

    :withstupid: That's really important. It takes three 8ga = 4ga with respect to surface area. Make sure your ground wire is as short as possible as well.
