That's correct. Except that 12 gage wire should be fused for 20 amps, not 70.

Most of the car battery cables I see at auto parts stores are 4 gage at best. I guess they figgure you can draw 200 amps through it while cranking your engine over cuz' it's only for a few seconds.
Can you buy 2 gage terminals at auto parts stores, or do you gotta pay through the nose for gold plated ones at Tweeter?
