    Battery Terminals for dummies

    (Sorry in advance if I **** anyone off by asking this)

    Can someone tell me what the idea behind a battery terminal is? I believe that I am going to need one...I am running an amp and possibly an Alpine HU that will both require me to tap off of the battery. Now, in addition to that I need to have the cars' electrical system wired to the battery...right?

    If this is right, wehat do I need to do this? If I am wrong, can anyone point me in the right direction?

    sounds like you need a battery terminal

    distro block exist so you can just run one large gauge wire back to the trunk instead of multiple smaller ones

    Re: Distribution blocks for dummies

    Check out Phoenix Gold too. And then PM me. I can get most of the battery terminals at far less than any other online source.

    Try the TMC.901k, its an unfused duplicate of the TMC.902k




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.
