i guess im stumbled here cause doing research im not sure if my 12 gauge together (9 gauge) will be able to hold up to the output of the sia 3500. as ive been told even at a 2 ohm load (because mine are dv2 so ill wired them up to pull 2 at amp) the output is still supposed to be about 3500. im looking to realistically push the full 1500 ish (i understand its not technically rms, but i want to make sure my wire will hold peak power) to each sub. itll technically be under a 4 foot run

It should I have the sia 3500 on 2 Sa v2 d4's as long as it's ofc u should be good the terminals on the amp and the subs are only oversized 8 gauge wire terminals

And even if u have to trim some off just make sure what u trim off is pushed up tight to the terminal and it'll still flow the current or use the reducers like u were saying

i appreciate the quick response, but do you know the actual size of the stock terminals? that way i can buy the correct reducer lol. 

Looking around the net, everything I see says 8 awg. I haven't personally owned any though, so this is just information I've found

ill take a pic in a few. combining my 12 gauge wires now and going to run it at 1000 watts combined for now till i get my alternator in, and anyways and itll be a good break in. i thought sky high was supposed to be only about 25% oversized but no. this 8 gauge is like 5 gauge wire because the 2 12 gauge look to be perfect size for the terminals. i was splitting and electrical taping it up so the wire was still contacting the terminal but it was just too sketchy for me to feel good about it.

so even my twist 12 gauge wont fit. the terminal spring cap is 12 gauge, while the inside is actually 8 gauge. legit. these were new in box.

 

already got my custom box, port was 3 inches from bottom so raised it to be about 5 but kept port length for tuning. already about 1400 in with the 0 gauge from gp. itll be clean eventually. im very dissappointed with these terminals. no wonder the guy i got my r3s from had custom 4 gauge terminals on it lol

 

if i kept both i couldve switched but sold my other that i made a house sub out of just before i started this. ima just hope these wires stay in.
