I have two amps, a 4 channel and a mono. The 4 channel is a kicker cx360.4 amp that recomends a 8 gauge. The mono is a Hifonics Brutus BRX2016.1D that recomends a 2 gauge. What is the best/correct way to run the power cable on this set up?

1/0 to rear battery and wire the two amps off the rear battery with the correct sized wire.

I do not have a rear battery. Can I run 0 gauge to the trunk and then split into two 2 gauge cables with a distribution block? Or would 2 gauge cause issues with the 4 channel since it only recommends 8 gauge.

You can run 1/0 to the rear into a D block and then 1/0 out into the Hifonics amp and 8 gauge into the Kicker 4 channel. That amp has a 200 amp fuse rating is to why I was recommending a rear battery.

Okay, so I can run a 0 gauge from the battery to a distribution block in the trunk. From the distribution block I can run a 2 gauge to my hifonics and a 4 gauge to my kicker amp. Right?
