    should be more than suffficient for 300A according to the given current ratings. There will be a slight voltage drop under FLA operating of ~3%.............. depending on the exact type of cable and length of run.

    Re: How many wire runs and number of RMS Watts you running?

    Thanks guys for helping me out. Went with with 1 run of pos and neg from front and back batteries. Drawing 165 amps at 14.4 so I should be good for a while. Might upgrade to another run of each in the future but I doubt it.

    Pretty interesting knowing what other run too! Keep it up

    1 run of 2/0 weld wire from yellowtop under hood to yellowtop in the back...its all 2/0 and 6 awg speaker wire. its overkill for 1800 rms but it leaves room for improvement.

    Your post has been reported as trolling. I understand you are just making a joke, but we are trying to keep the tech sections more serious. Im not going to give an infraction because I dont think you had malicious intentions, but I am requesting you remember this in the future. Thank you.



    No speaker, in the history of speakers, has ever been blown by too little power. Ever. I don't care what your friend told you, he's a dirty liar.

    Re: How many wire runs and number of RMS Watts you running?

    3500W RMS-1 run of 1/0 Kicker Hyperflex directly from alternator lead to rear batteries. 1/0 between all batteries. Once installing my Warhorse, 2 runs of 1/0, one from each alternator post to battery bank. Battery bank connected via aluminum rails.

    Does anyone else run straight from alternator?

    Lets say you ran one pos from alternator and one run from from battery. Who does this?
