Im gonna use 2 amps in my car one is a 500.1 jl mono amp and the other will be some 4 channel amp that will be probably 60-75 rms a channel. Im gonna use all 4 for my speakers. Can i use different gauge wires say 4 gauge from the battery to the distribution block then 8gauge to the amps. same for the ground. What gauge wires should i use for everything.

Do you know any distribution blocks you would recommend for my wiring situation? I need one for the power and ground i know but can i just splice the blue wire from the headunit or should i get one for that too?

imo i would go 1/0 and then distribute that using 4 gauge wire. there is nothing better than a little bit of a buffer.
