    Would doing this with 4 gauge wire be a waste of time?

    I am going to be running about 1100-1200 watts total

    I used 4g and it seems fine.. I had a crap load of 4g laying around and no 1/0, so 4g had to do

    Re: Official CarAudio.com Big 3 Thread

    not much risk at all. seems like a fuse would cause resistance between the alt and battery

    btw, mine isn't fused and zero problems. and i have a HO alt

    Re: Official CarAudio.com Big 3 Thread

    Okay, i understand most of this, but what im wondering.. is why you would need a wire between the engine block and chassis....

    there is no current between the two right?? so why is it needed...


    or am i being an a moron begginer??

    Re: Official CarAudio.com Big 3 Thread

    There is a wire between the engine block and chassis, you are upgrading all your wires to a bigger ga. so the electrical current has the same flow. Think of it as a water pipe. If you have a 2 in. pipe flowing into a 1 in. pipe, the rate of flow is cut in half. I hope this helps.

    Check these sites out...it is a good reference.

    the alternator grounds to the block, but the battery grounds to the frame/chassis. There needs to be a strong link between the two
