    You will be fine to run it wherever in your truck... Good 4 gauge should handle 1200-1500 no problem...

    Re: 4ga on 1000wrms

    The 4 gauge is fine for your run to each amp. You can look up a reference chart online that will tell you the max length for the watts you're looking to run. And I'm hoping you said four feet from the battery for the 2nd battery you're adding to support the amps.
