Guage Power wire ???
So i have a headunit that will push out 50W peak to 4 speakers so 200W total. It is turning off on me if i turn my speakers up too loud. I have read i need to replace the power wire. with a larger wire. What guage do i need to use or would you stereo guys recommend?

14 is fine. Check your ground first, should be short and contact needs to be clean.

wire gauge will depend on the total length. If its a short run to the battery for the head-units B+ and GND, then 14ga is sufficient. It the run is long, then step up to 12ga.

Getcha a couple lengths of 2/0 power and ground and run them up to the head unit. You'll need to find some 2/0 to 14 reducing crimps though :cool:

Hey man you don't need 12 ga. Off your hu. 16 is fine.
