    Thinking the quad inputs, that's because I want them and they look ******..

    Just curious as to what part is overkill to you?
    no such thing as overkill,run as much as you want.as much as you think you need.IMO the way you are going about it sounds very good,it will be plenty.

    Assuming your batt bank is close together why would you do multiple runs between batts? 1/0 will carry a LOT of amperage over a 2-3' run.

    2 runs POS from the front should be fine for that alt/batt combo up front. A 3rd run wouldn't hurt, but probably wouldn't help either...

    Re: How many runs of wire front to back?

    If you can fit it, I'd just do a single run of 4/0 welding cable. That stuff is rated for like 600 amps at a 50' length. Less than half a volt drop per 10' at 1000A of current according to the datasheets I've read. Then all 2/0 or even 1/0 if lengths are less than 5' between batteries and amps. Just my $.02. You can buy 4/0 for only slightly more than the high-end 1/0 car audio wire, and it has about three times the current carrying capacity and about half the resistance. These are all rough numbers I'm shouting out, so if I'm off a little, I apologize.
