Hello all, 2005 Nissan Titan CC.  I am putting 3 amps in, a Memphis 1000d (1100watts), Memphis 150x2, and Memphis 75x4.  The AB amps will be pushing Rainbows seperates and the 1000d 2 Memphis M3 10's.  My question is what size wire do I need to run from my battery to the dist. block.  I have installed for some time now, and I distinctly remember 2 guage.  Now I cannot find it anywhere.  My suppliers handle hooker and stinger, and they said they cannot get it.  I really hate dealing with 1/0 guage, and 1700 watts is not enough  warrent using 1/0 guage.  Will 2 guage be sufficient, and where can I find some???  Thanks

You can easliy get 2AWG cable from a welding supply shop.  Flexible 2 AWG is a couple bucks a foot.

Cool, I haven't looked on Ebay yet.  2 guage should be plenty enough power wire for the amps though right???
