    Check out the Rockford Fosgate sale going on at <a href="http://thezeb.com" target="_blank">http://thezeb.com</a> they have some pretty good deals. You can either get a mono amp that is stable at 2ohms. or you can use a two channel

    Okay let's see here are you going to run more than one amp? If not you don't really need a distribution block. But if later on down the road you decide to add more amps it's an easy add on.

    For the correct wire gauge I don't know how long of a run we are talking about. But 4gauge would be a safe bet. And remember to use the same gauge for power and ground.
