Hi Guys,
Well...I finally got my system installed. Here is the setup..
H/U - Alpine CDA-7894
Amp - MB Quart RAA4200
Speakers Front - Boston Acoustic SL95
Speakers Rear - Boston Acoustics SL65

As I said before I was hoping that I didnt have to go with subs, but I know me well enough that I would end up having too.
ANyway I bought the center console hot-box today and purchased a MB Quart Reference RAA2400 amp and a MB Quart PWE 304 12" sub to complete my setup.
What would everyone recommend as far as the wiring to add the sub setup?
I used 4 ga for the other amp so should I end up replacing that or taking a different route. I guess I dont even really know what my options are here. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Brian

How long is the 4 gauge run of wire. Typically using 4 gauge to power those 2 amps will be fine. Just be sure you have them well grounded, fused, and all should be well.

Yep, I just did mine that way yesterday. Just add a distribution block before your first amp and the come off of that with 8 gauge to each amp.

Thanks for the reply.
I have the amp installed behind my back seats (Quad Cab) and will also put the other one back there as well.

Thanks for the help again yellowbee...I must have posted my reply the same time you were replying to the thread so I didnt get to say thanks to you the first time. I am going to use a distribution block and will let you know how it turns out.

Yes, the seller's name is hot-boxes on ebay. Here is a link, but not sure that it will show up as I can not post working links half the time either.

From what I have heard his product is top notch. He builds them per the sub you specify that you are getting and uses stitched oem material so it looks stock. I will let you know what I think when it arrives. I should have it in 7-10 days according to the email i got after purchasing it.
