    I think dual alts is a very good idea. You can draw more than 300A with a single 4k theoretically. What's the fuse rating on your amp? But I would do 3-4 runs of both positive and negative depending on what size alts you get (if you go dual alt, which again should probably be done.), skip the grounding to frame. It depends on how you will play it too. If it's going to be cranked daily, definitely get a pair of alts. If it's only going to be cranked during comps or only sometimes for shorter durations, you should be ok with the biggest single alt you can find. And in that case, like I said before, you should be ok with 2 pos, 2 neg runs.

    You have to look at where you will actually be drawing all your power from. Up front you only have your alt (single alt in this example), which you know exactly how much amperage it will kick out, and a single battery. So, from front to back, you have no more than 2 runs of 1/0ga CCA or OFC can carry traveling along that wire. In back, at the battery bank, is where your large draw potential is, because you have the amperage from the front (alt and batt) and all batts in back added together. That's where you really want some electrical beef.
    i couldnt find any fusing ratings on the amp but soemone told me like 300-350 amps

    Yes, this. 2 runs per alt, especially if you are using 300A alts.

    Well then come on man, you can't see the difference in draw vs. supply here? If you want to go single, you have to realize that you won't be able to play it up high for a long period of time, and that your voltage is going to be sitting lower, because you are drawing from the batteries.

    Re: two 4ks

    one odessey pc 2150 in the froand one in the back .garrett , those amps can draw 400 amps very easy at high power ,from what we have been talking about you'll need everything i'm talking about if you wanna beat that guy . also the 8 runs of power and 8 of grounds actually help keep the rear batts charged when playing , also you may wan external voltage regulators .maybe even look into a 16volt system ,those memphis amps really wake up at 18 volts ,you would be syurprised what they are capable of at that voltage

    these batts are expensive ,but with what you are trying to accomplish you'll need at least 6 of these to get there 500 each new .
