Question about Car Amplifiers
I am about to install a kicker zx750.1 amp and a zx700.5 amp. What would be the proper way to ground and power these 2 amps. i'm familiar with installing amps just never did 2 in one vehicle before.
Ideally you would use 1/0 gauge power and ground wire for the amps, and use power distribution blocks to reduce it to 4-gauge for each amp. Any smaller wire would be less than ideal for that much amp power.
If you're buying a power wire kit, it most likely won't have a separate distribution block for the ground wire (usually they have separate ground wire for each amp or one piece that's long enough to cut and have wire for both). This is fine, but you should look for a kit with at least 3 feet of ground wire per amp - any shorter and it's a struggle to mount the amp close enough to a ground point. As above, the main power wire to the battery should be 1/0 gauge.
Lastly if a 1/0 gauge kit is not available, 2 separate 4 gauge kits will work, however that's obviously a lot more wire to run and conceal.
