    Dual Wire Inputs

    ive read around and researched dual inputs. i found something and was wondering if this would work the same way IF i could fit 2 wires in it. Not saying im going to buy it just curious.

    Stinger SHT206 Oval 1/0 Gauge to Standard 1/0 Gauge Adaptor

    Thanks.....................

    trust me... i could make it fit with out breaking it lol..... im just curious tho. i mean the whole dont really look that small, plus wire can be pressed kinda flat anyway. the wire that would go in is actually just a 2awg but its 100% copper ofc,and and would only be like 1.5ft long....

    well i acutally just came from lunch break. i asked one of my teammates and they said it really would not be that benefiting to do it this way. i asked him if it would work to just run both wires directly into the amps power terminal, which would be the same concept as me buying this adapter. he said it would help a little but would not be getting the full potential of both wires

    As the amount of current being pulled through the wire reaches its limit, heat starts to rise and thus resistance rises as well. The idea behind dual inputs is that your wire isn't bottlenecking your amp, so by doing 2 or more wires into one terminal you limit that amount of heat and resistance buildup and thus gain efficiency

    Re: Dual Wire Inputs

    alot of amps back 2-3yrs ago have single input and pull 300+ amps and need more juice. it mostly came from competition where getting every 10th mattered...
