Suggestions?

Hi,
New to the site and wanted some input.
I currently have 2 mtx t7510's and am looking for an amp.
Subs are in a 2 ohm load and are 400 rms a piece.
Was looking for something 800-1000 rms.
I already have an alpine 100x4 running and was curious what guage wiring would be best from the battery and/or will a stock (100amps i think) alternator and decent battery suit my setup.

Any and all input is welcome thanks for reading.

Throw me a budget for your new amp if you can. I would recommend the largest guage wire that you can afford. A 4 gauge line may indeed work for this but it would be at it's limit is my guess. That said a 0 guage kit is probably a better option for you.

Thanks for the input guys. I should mention there is already a run of 4 awg in the vehicle.
Also it looks like the big 3 are 4 awg, appears to be the stock wiring.
