I just got my new carpet in the mail today for my 95 civic sedan and was wanting to know if you guys think it would be a good idea to get an amp wiring kit and install that when I install the carpet. I plan on getting a sub setup sometime this summer and was wondering if that would save me some troubles now. thanks

If your planning on ripping everything out to place that carpet then hell yes. It is a bitch to run wires down teh car, if your already going to place the carpet then why not save the trouble? While your at it, i would also suggest laying some sound proofing to make your ride quiter in the cabin.

Defintiley wire it up, and then lay down the sound deadening. But, only if you are definitely planning on putting the amp in. Run the wires right when there's no carpet in the car, and it will make your job so much easier when it comes time to put the amp and sub in.

what wiring kit should i get? will a 4 gauge kit be too much for just a dual sub setup? im probably only going to need about 250-350 watts total RMS. thanks

For that much power an 8 awg wiring kit would be sufficient. But, if you think that you would ever want to upgrade your amp, or even add another amp for your front speakers, then i would get the 4awg kit. That way you won't have to tear your car up again if you do decide to upgrade.

Definitely get the 4ga kit. You can never have too much wire. It will save you hassle down the road, because you will want to upgrade....trust me.

I concur with rcurley55, get the 4 awg. Stereos are an addiction, and the 4 will be much easier on your electrical system when you do decide to upgrade.
