That will be dependent on what model Tube you decide to use. As for the second question, are you referring to the wire that you will be using from the amplifier to the speaker?

That would be largely dependent on power output, as well as total length.

Well i'm thinking 8GA wire for the powered bass tube I have. (Pyle PLTAB12 800 MAX Peak Watts)
And 12GA speaker wire to run the subwoofer.

I have no idea, as you are using a Pyle component. I have no information on the unit. However, the owner's manual of the Pyle, should have an appropriate wire size to use.
