    power wire help

    Is it ok to run 2 awg wire into a distro block, into two 4 awg outputs, or what about even a 2 awg in and a 4 and 8 awg output?

    also if the distro block is for 0/1 input, would it hurt to run 2 awg in
    and if it is 4 awg out, would it hurt to run 8 awg out?

    which would be my best bet

    2 awg in- 4 and 4 awg out
    2 awg in- 4 and 8 awg out

    I doubt it makes a difference.


    Its just easier to put the wire into the block if the wire is smaller than or equal the ga size of the d block hole.
