    Is This How To Setup An Amplifier Wires? Please Read!!! Need Help!

    I have this setup... I have an MTX 81000d Amp, connected to a 1/0 KnuKonceptz (Silver) Ground Wire and an ANL 100amp Inline Fuse on the top of the box.... I'm getting my pair of MTX Thunder 8000 T8124 4ohm and my PPI capitator tomorrow... I was wondering to complete the setup, should I connect the 1/0-Gauge from the battery to a distribution block (1/0 Gauge to 8 Gauge). One wire from the distribution block to my amplifier, then one wire to the capacitor. Then ground the capacitor, and lastly connect RCA connection and you're done..... Am I right? You can take a look at what I've done so far on my link below: Thanks...

    THAT FUSE GOES UNDER YOUR HOOD YOUNG JEDI HEHE. ..RUN THE WIRE FROM YOUR BATTERY (THAT FUSE HOLDER WITHIN 18" OF YOUR BATTERY. RUN IT THROUGH YOUR FIREWALL....THE WIRE UNDER THE HOOD WRAP IN LOOM..ALSO MAKE SURE THE WIRE PASSING THROUGH THE FIREWALL DOES SO VIA A WIRE GRAMET
    . THE WIRE THEN GOES UNDER YOUR INTERIOR CARPET THROUGH YOUR BACKSEAT TO YOUR TRUNK BY WHERE YOUR AMP IS......GET A DISTIBUTION BLOCK THAT IS WITHIN 18 WIRE INCHES OF YOUR AMP...EITHER 8 OR 4 GUAGE CAN BE USED OR A BLOCK WITH 2 0 GUAGE INPUT/OUTPUTS CAN BE USED (SEES YOUR AMP ACCEPTS IT) WITH THE EXTRA HOOK UPS ON THE BLOCK ATTACH THE POWER (POSITIVE) OF THE CAP (READ ABOUT CHARGING YOUR CAP) THEN GROUND BOTH YOUR AMP AND CAP....THEN PUT THE FUSE IN THE FUSE HOLDER UNDER THE HOOD............
