    for power and ground and speaker wire, the only advantage to buying more expensive wire is that it is MUCH easier to work with, especially the larger gauges. decent audio wire is really not that expensive, i highly reccommend you get it.

    for RCAs, if you don't already have them, spend as much as you can stand to spend, it's worth it.

    oh, and to figure out how much wire you need - run a string exactly how you'll run the appropriate wire, then add a little bit for mistakes.

    see if www.knukonceptz.com will ship international. regular electrical wire is EXTREMELY hard to work with and does not do as well in a car enviroment and is much more prone to corroding

    The wires that came with your speakers are 16 guage wire if Im not mistaken. This is ok but 14 would be better.

    For wires, I agree with the others. Power wires are all the same pretty much but you still want to buy quality wire. RCA's, like Neo said, spend as much as you can. Your money goes into better insulation and noise filtering.

    As far as brands, Im partial to Tsunami and Streetwires.
