Stock speaker wire rating

Quick question but not necessarily easy to answer
Anyone know what the maximum rating the stock stereo wiring is on TJs? THink it can handle 75WRMS?
I am thinking the fact that the stock radio fuse is 10A and most amplifiers ask for 15A may be a bad idea

The speaker wiring wouldn't be receiving 75 RMS watts continually from a 75 RMS watt amplifier, it averages just a few watts with peak watts not lasting all that long. I wouldn't worry about it. Only if you were doing audio competitions to see who's is the loudest would I step up a gauge or two on the speaker wiring.

Gone to Florida 7/19-7/28.
When you have a choice, buy American made.

That's what I figured just wanted to confirm.
Appreciate it
