0-2 gauge will be fine,also make sure your earth cable is no more than a foot long,the battery should be vented

this is my set up took about a day





forgive the mess work in progress! used 0 gauge on my set up. 1 bit of advise ill offer if u pound a decent sound system off the battrery in the boot the wire is going to get very hot so be careful about what gauge u use, ive used 0 gauge to be on the safe side. remember the wire charges as well as runs the car so is bound to get a lot of current through it
