    I'm working on 2 sealed UM18s that I want to power off of a Crown XLS5000, 1600x2 at 4 ohms. I was planning on internally wiring with 14AWG, mostly because its flexible, but should I be using a thicker gauge? Parts express is telling me 10AWG. Its only about 30" so I figured 14AWG would be...

    I'm remodelling our basement and turning it into a media/entertainment room... There's a small closet about 15' from where the equipment is going to be and I'm thinking about building an LLT sub in there in the future. It's about a 20' run end-to-end and far more convenient to run speaker...
