Mosconi Pico 8 / 12 DSP Wiring Help Please

402 Views 10 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ejn1111
Hi all, I would greatly appreciate some advice on wiring the power to the amp. The amp comes with a harness which includes power and remote in and out but the power wires coming out of the harness are the following:

  • there are 2 positive 16-gauge wires
  • there are 2 negative 16-gauge wires

If either the pos or neg wires are spliced together at best you have the equivalent of a 12 gauge wire. Does this seem right for 8x60watt amp to have the power feed only 12 gauge? Secondly, how best to wire this coming off a amplifier terminal block that the smallest wire it can output out of the block is 8 gauge?

Huge thanks in advance!

get a pair of these and connect 2 power and 2 ground wires from it to the amp wiring harness.

amp current draw is really transient, in that only for a few tenths of a second, if that, will there be a current draw spike playing actual music. most amps are WAY over-fused for music, but people also like loud and crazy sine-wave type bass, so it all depends. that goes even more for the size of the power wire inputs. this amp is surely well designed top to bottom. don't fall for the hype of fuse size and wire size.
