I Just uninstalled my CD deck and amp and noticed my RCA cables are pretty thin would this make my amp not as loud if I had bigger rca cables or better ones.

I Just bought a cheap kit I think from Walmart it said 300 Wat kit, I thought my Power cable was to small for my 400 Watt RMS amp but never thought about the RCA cables.

THanks.

Because the RCAs don't carry a lot of current it shouldn't make a huge difference. A twisted pair cable is much better at rejecting RF interference from the car and that is not something you generally find in the cheaper wire kits.......

ok cool thanks.

Does Futureshop carry bulk Power cable or would I have to buy a new kit from them to do an install there?

If you are going to try and save money buying cables etc. somewhere else they might install it for you if they are installing, say a deck or an amp you bought there. Some shops will do it for you at whatever hourly rate they charge for custom work.

If you want to save the most $$ you will be doing the work yourself.
