Not building a big system and will probably not upgrade to any more power in the future.

my question will 4 gauge ofc be large enough to run a 600w mono amp at 2 ohms
along with a 100watt X4 amp at 4 ohms per channel.

length of power wire going to the distribution block from the battery will probably be 15 feet.

Not advice just actually a question.

Why not do 0 gauge ofc just to be safe either way?

Is there any situation that having 0 gauge when you only need 4 gauge would be a disadvantage?


I'm sorry for posting a question on your question but I got kind of curious when reading your post.

Real quality 4awg would work fine for your purposes.

Knuconceptz kollosus is my recommendation

Nothing wrong with going bigger but 4g won't hurt a thing

reason for not going 0 gauge if it is not needed

truck is a 2016 toyota tundra
the best entry through the firewall fits a 4 gauge wire tight. Don’t know if a 0g will fit through the spot I am looking to use.

2nd reason. I used 0g on the mustang and camaro and the wire is a little harder to work with.

Just make sure its OFC and not CCA wire and you should be just fine

Not a bad kit here.May need a Dual Distro Fused block @ the amps.

Id recommend doing the Big 3. Not a bad kit with the Big3 included

Gotcha. Go with what the truck gives you. I agree with you I was asking for technical reasons. I'd do the same if I were you.

LOL. I was thinking the same. Be good for some short runs to a couple amps for me.The 1/0 kit doesnt look too bad either.I picked up the EQ, but havent hooked it up yet. Looks nicely built for the $
