Using stock bose amp SPEAKER wire for b2 ref amp

Recommended Posts

I know this is a silly question but this will save a days worth of rewiring if i don't need to.

So i have a bose bypass harness, the harness is wired directly to all of my bose speakers(all being replaced by b2 ref 3 way). Heres the issue though, the leads that come out of the harness are 16-18g wire that connects into a LC7i. The b2 amp pushes out 125.4 @ 4 ohms and 325x4 @ 1 ohm. 

If i keep the stock wiring, will i  be losing power?

Or should i just rewire all of it with my big spool of cca sky high 14/16g?

heres a read that might help.

if they aren’t super long runs you could get away with minimal loss but I’d say make sure your subs using 12/14 gauge direct from the amp atleast. If those wires are 16 gauge then I’d say you should be alright but 18 you may lose quite a bit

I was wondering the same but i found out im fine     i didnt wamt to have to repin the door harness for new speaker wire. What a pain it would be

The only wire runs i needed to do was my tweeters that are inside my door, didnt want to splice into the speaker and i also wired my dash speakers. Supposedly theres a crossover in the kickpanel somewhere and i didn't want that to mess with it. Now i just need to figure out how i can get my chimes back.
