sub-amp 12 gauge or thicker, depending on how much power

door speakers 16 gauge should be enough imo, again depends on power

Amp for the sub is a Cadence IA-9 @ 2 ohms so imma say a little over 1000 watts. What would you suggest for that?

I got a 125.4 on my door and 6x9's. What would be the best for that?
