Right now I am running a US Acoustics 1000D amplifier off of 4 gauge wire. The amp is supplying a 12" Eclipse Titanium with 750w RMS at 2 ohms. This is a class D monoblock amp. As of now, this is the only thing running off of the my battery, there is a inline fuse 80A about 6 in from the battery and then 2x40A fuses on the amplifier.
But I am adding an Audiocontrol Epicenter to my setup, so I will be needing to split that power cable to something else. I have distribution and power blocks that accept 4 awg inputs and 8 awg outputs. I just realized that would mean halving the size of the wire going to my amp. The Audiocontol device only takes a 1 amp fuse so it will not be drawing very much power, 8awg will be fine, but I am unsure if my amp will be alright with 8 awg power and grounds.
So my question is:
Will that amp require more current than 8awg wires will be able to handle?
If not, I know my amp can run on 6awg wire, where can I find a distribution block that accepts 4awg or larger and outputs at least 6awg?
Comon, gimme a hand, remember how anxious you were to install once you got your stuff!
