1000 Watts 8 Gauge wire blown fuses?

i have a Audiobahn 1206T 12 in 2200 Watt sub hooked to a SPL Phantom DK 1000 Watt amp...i am using 8 gauge wire to suppy the amp. I blow the fuse compeletly it like explodes and then the fuse holder melts. i talked to a installer at ABC Warehouse and he said i need a bigger gauge like 4 gauge to supply that much watts any ideas? this is the second thing i melted

Answers:

Will my capacitor have any use if it is not charged first or can i just hook it up without charging it?

lol. YES! you need 4 gauge, and you need a bigger fuse up front.

Will the Pioneer AVIC-Z1 fit into a 2003 F350?

He is right! All of that power traveling through an 8 gauge wire causes it to heat up and melt the fuse holder. Making the wire thicker gives it a a little more area for the currents to travel through the fuse and wire.

What Will this sound like and what kind of amp will i need for my door speakers and tweeters?

I am amazed that the wire hasn't melted or something, I run 200 watts and use 8 guage, here is the link to the wiring kit i put in for a friend. High quality stuff and not too expensive. even comes with signal

What is the best subs, box, and amp combo?

So whats better keenwood or alpine? im inbetween geting an alpine cda-9884 and a keenwood kdc x 891?

8ga is probably good up to 600w. For 1000w, you'll probably want 4ga wires. You'll also want a fuse that is right for your amp. Look at the fuses in your amp, and get one roughly that same number of amps (maybe a bit smaller) to fuse your +12v connection.
