yep this is true.
but, from my own experience, i was pushing about 2000wRMS (metered it, between 80-100A continuous, so no bullcrap) through a single high quality 4 gauge power wire. felt it get a shade warm on long drawn out bass sections, but nowhere near dangerous. i was using a 2farad cap as well.
bottom line - single 4 gauge wire FTW. run lower gauge wire if you feel like it, but its likely to be overkill. it sure looks cool though
