So when I first started piecing together components for my truck a few years ago I didn't know an awful lot (still don't) about car audio, and now have a better idea about some thing and want to clean my wiring up.
My situation is that I have three amps in the truck, and over time as I added each of them I just wired them straight to the battery so now it's a bit crowded.
I picked up a stinger distribution block that can take up to two 1/0 gauge inputs, and four 4 gauge outputs. The amps I have are a small MTX amp rated at around 450 watts rms under my back seats, an RE amp @ 60 x 4 under the driver's seat, and another RE amp @ 400 watts under the passenger seat. Right now they all have 4 gauge power running to my battery.
The problem is that I'm not really sure where exactly I should put the dist block, I could probably find someplace to stuff it up front, but I think it'd be a lot cleaner and easier to get to if I put it under the back seat.
SO, sorry for the long winded explanation. My question is, it'll be a pain to run more than one 0 gauge wire through my firewall, but if I have to run power all the way to the back will one 0 gauge be enough? I've looked at several online calculator and conversion tables, and it looks like it should, but I want to be sure. Would 7 or 8 feet make enough difference to need another run? If I have to run two then that's what I've gotta do, but finding another spot big enough will be tough.
I hope I explained it well enough, let me know if I need to clarify anything.
