My questions:
So...How long are the wires that come with this unit. I believe I am reading that it comes only with about 19" (including fuse) of 12 gauge power wire. Is that correct?

If that is correct, and the power wire is only 12 gauge, should an 8 gauge CCA (copper coated aluminum) wire be a sufficient extension?

Also, will I still need a fuse box/fuse, the kind that comes with an amp installation kit?
You do not need to use 8 gauge for the power wire, 12 gauge is plenty sufficient for the Tube. Not to mention, it makes it easier to connect to the in-line fuse holder and the harness of the Tube.

No, the in-line fuse holder that is supplied is all you need for the installation of the Tube.

As for the length, the in-line fuse holder may be 10" long, to be honest, I've never taken the time to measure. As for the harness, these wires are most likely 12"-16" long.
