Gauge of power cable for enhanced premium sound?

Does anyone know what the gauge of the OEM power cable for the enhanced premium sound is?
Is it thicker than the one for the HIFI?

Are you asking for the IA OEM amp 12V power cable? If so then it is 10-12AWG.

Not convinced BMW uses American Wire Gauge.

It's too big to fit into the old Top HiFi amp connector.

agreed on the AWG comment
but you have answered the question i had for Technic
i assume he said 10-12awg meaning the cable is 4mm
since 10awg is 5.3mm, and 12awg is 3.3mm, and usualy in metric sizes you use a full mm so it's 1mm, 2mm, 3mm etc
thanks
