    optima side post

    if i run out of space to put wire rings on the terminal can i use a GM side post extenderon the yellowtop, will is give the same amount of power, and can i wire an amp off the side post without a problem?

    that's what i'm going to do when i upgrade my battery ground, just run it to the GM side posts.

    works fine, very convienent. Those dual post batteries give you a lot of flexibility that way.

    why not just run a huge single wire and branch it off with distro blocks? Less overall wire to run, could be cheaper...

    you don't really need that much cable, then...I'd say one run of 2awg for the 1500's, and another 4awg for the ZX6400.
