Re: speaker wire size? among another question?

What kind of speakers are you wanting to go with? I normally ran 10 gauge from amp to subs, 14 gauge to any interior speakers.

1994-1998 exterior parts are identical to yours.

Can't help you on what pieces to choose. I've been out of the audio game for a while.

I dont think there is a rule but I would call crutchfield, they are always useful.

14 gage for up to 150 watts, 10 gage for up to 1000 watts, 8 or 6 gage for any thing higher is usually what you would run.

Any exterior part will interchange between 94-98 mustang v6, gt ,cobra, saleen.

What's your budget? Because for about $350 I'm gonna get an alpine type r 12" (swr-1223d), alpine mrp-m500 amp, a box, and a wiring kit. The sub is very powerful and accurate, and the amp is extremely reliable.

I have 8 gauge wire for my 12s. My amp is 2000 watts so it's needed more. The shop I took mine to gave me the 8 gauge wiring for free with the install. I bought a face unit and with the install it was only 150$. That also included some free bowls, but that wasn't apart of the original agreement.
