I already have two sets of 8 gauge power/ground cables from my two previous systems. My new amplifier has an 90A fuse, so I'll definitely need a larger cable size.
Can I just connect the two 8 gauge cable sets to the one amplifier? The combined copper should equal approx 2 gauge worth. I'm just not sure if it's a good idea or not, will the current flow smoothly enough?
Naturally, the cables are already crimped with ring and fork terminals, so the solution seems more convenient in theory, I'm just not certain about the practical realities of electrons in motion.
It would mean two fork terminals into each binding post, two ring terminals into same ground position, two ring terminals around the battery bolt, and obviously each 8 gauge cable will have its own 60A fuse. What would happen in an overload? Would both fuses blow simultaneously?
