Default Is this guy correct? Amp question

Posted up the pics of my little audio build in the SRT and he put this post up about the Audiopipe 18001D

"looks nice.

i hate to be the bearer of bad news but the manual for that amp calls for a minimum of 2g with 0g preferred. that 4g is too small for the sub amp, especially if you plan on running it at 1ohm, and way to small if you plan on adding another amp in the future.

i really hope that you told the box builder what sub you were going to use and that it was built to the proper specs (not necessarily what the manual says but what it needs). sticking any sub in any ported box can have some terrible results.

not trying to be mean or put your stuff down, i just want to help you avoid any problems."

is this correct?

Here is my response
"Thanks for the info man but... I'm not quite sure how I'm suppose to fit 0 or even 2 ga in 4ga toolmaker inputs?
these inputs are JUST big enough to fit the 4 gauge I have..
I think you might of been looking at a different AP amp?
There's quite a few models with some of them that do have 0 gauge inputs but certainly not this one

And yes the box was made specifically FOR the T2 to spec and everything
the audio shop I had build it is also the installers for the ABC warehouse in Bay City, Mi


I ran my Rockford T2000BD on some thick RF 4 ga and that thing sucked power like a black hole
I think I'll be alright =)

I been in the game a while so I know a thing or two
Lol"

If you're asking if 4 gauge wire will work for you, yes. Is it sufficient for 1800 watts? I'd try to go bigger if i could. I wouldn't feel comfortable using 4 gauge for anything more than 1200 RMS.

Last AP18001 I installed for someone I ran 0 all the way to about 6" from the amp, then used a distribution block to a 6" piece of 4awg to finish it. Worked fine.
