I have seen people in DB Drag use 1/0 wire for speaker wire..It gets expensive using it that way though..

8 gauge is probly good up to about 10k if its a short run. anything under that amount of power should be fine as long as like rowland said its not 6 ft from the amps or somthing. but a couple ft and under is fine
