10 gauge is rated for 15 amps max...but this is constant draw. Your amp only draws a fraction of this most of the time. So I would suggest using it and feeling if the wire is warm at all after a good hour of heavy load.
I've used 10 gauge with no problems with my basslink.
spare yourself the trouble and put a 4 gauge wire there. You know your going to upgrade and nothing worst then haveing to redo the job again. Installing foundation wire for your system is a hassle. Why not make it a one time job then a double work? I started out with one 4 channel for my interior but who knew in a year I would add a bass box with a DEI amp? But thankfully I used the 4 guage from the begining but only put in a 40 amp fuse for the 4 channel and then changed it to a 100amp fuse for my setup now( PS2,DVD,2 screens,4xamp and 1x amp). I am in the process of putting in a Computer in my car to replace my dvd and ps2. But one thing I am glad about is that I have all the rca wires and power wires in place so that I dont have to remove trim pieces to replace wire all over again which saves alot of time for a install.
Just think I started out with just 4 chan amp? you will upgrade
Well, I'm pretty sure I'm good to go. I'm running a 2-channel Orion, a Cobalt 702. 70 watts rms. It sounds absolutely wonderful, and the wire isn't warm at all after an hour of loud play. Big_Blue, I hope I'll be alright for a while! I'm a college student, and I got the amp off ebay. Plus, gotta save up for my 383 stroker! Thanks guys!

Been wanting this for the past few months, planned it out for the past few weeks, finally got it done this Columbus weekend. I'm very pleased with how it came out. Here's a review of what I used and the basic method for doing it since there is next to no information out there on bypassing the...
