    How to connect all my wires?

    So I'm looking to hook up 3 LED light kits, a 1200W sub amp, and a 200W door speaker amp on my car. I'm also going to do the big 3 upgrade. I opened up my hood today and looked at the battery and it looks like there's no way that I will be able to hook up 2 new 1/0 guage wires to my negative terminal. Also there is only one screw to put on wires for the positive terminal, and I couldn't imagine that it would safely handle 7 connections. What would be the best way to hook up all of my components?

    i've never seen a battery terminal with more then 4 outputs so i would just run 1/0 from the positive terminal that you have to a d block.

    A d-block is a distrbution block. Run 1/0 from your battery to within a few inches of your amps. The dblock divides the power from 1 1/0 wire into 3 or 4 4, 6, or 8 gauge wires to run to your amps..
    stinger makes a cool one with leds that tell you how many amps or watts each wire is pulling/putting out.

    Okay, so would it work if I use this battery terminal and hook up two of my LED kits and one 1/0 gauge wire to one of the screws and then the 2 original power cables and the second 1/0 gauge wire on the second screw of the terminal, then use one of the 1/0 gauge for my big 3 upgrade and the second 1/0 wire split into two 4 gauge wires for my amps and a smaller than 8 gauge wire for my third LED kit using this d block?
