    Any standard 4 gauge amp kit should do the trick. Wire will not make that much of a difference unless you are running so many amps and processors you end up with 6 miles of wire in the car. At least make sure the RCA's have a large diameter. The scosche kit from wal mart, for example, I WOULD NOT BUY. Crap RCA's. In a truck, the run is such a short run, for a single four channel amp, 8 guage would suffice, BUT you really want to run the power wire ONCE, so bigger is better, if for nothing else, that reason alone.
