    Wiring 2 us acoustics amps..help

    I have 2 us acoustics amps(260x4 rms and 375x1 rms) that i will be hooking up. At the moment i have 1 4 gauge wire running through my car with an 80 amp fuse under the hood.
    I am getting 8 gauge wire for them...what would be a good distribution block to get? and should i leave the fuse at 80?

    add up the two fuse ratings of the two amps and use this rating for the fuse up front. then get a fused distribution block (4 gauge input, 2-8gauge outputs), run the 4 gauge into that and run the two 8 gauges into ur amp, and fuse them accordingly, keep the wires as short as possible.
