I finally got my 1200.1 back from Kicker and will wire that up this weekend, but I have a question, the kicker manual talks about 0/1 gauge from the battery, but the installer ran 4 guage from the front (which is one of the reasons I am rebuilding the amps and subs in the back) instead of 0/1.
My question is this, I can run 4 gauge from the dist block, I have enough 4 guage, but as far as grounding wire, I only have 8 gauge. Can I get away with running the 8 gauge as the grounding wire, or should I get 4 gauge and run that from the dist block??
Also, about what is the max length that you want to let a ground wire get, all the way to the amp is going to be about 5 feet of grounding (that includes the length from the dist block back to the frame).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
