What gauge power wire is needed to run 2 amps..
Posted 23 March 2017 - 05:05 PM
I would think 4 would be fine. Maybe go bigger if you have doubts but you shouldn't need a huge wire. I think the wire coming off the alternator is an 8 gauge...? That's transporting 75 or so amps. Do some further research but 4 should be fine
I have a question and any input would be greatly appreciated.. in a 2 amp set up 1 amp requires a 4 gauge wire and the other requires a 8 gauge. What size wire should I run from the battery to power distribution block?

I'd say 4 at a minimum. Recommend 2 gauge. I just did a multiamp install in my car and ran 2 gauge amp wire to the distribution block and 4 gauge to the amps with 4 gauge grounds. Did this after talking with the car audio dudes near me. I'm running a mono block amp for subs and a 4 channel for the mids and highs. 4 gauge should be good up till 1000 watts.
