Distro Quesiton

I have a single run of 0 gauge wire. I am getting a second amp right away, and I would like to split the run into 2 for both power and ground. However, I don't want to spend too much if possible on distro blocks, and was wondering if anyone had any ideas on other ways to split into 2 4 guage runs or if that wasn't possible where to find the cheapest distro blocks to fit my application.

No the only real way is to use a Dist. Block without setting a fire anyways.

Fair enough. Just wondering if there were any good places to order them online or where the cheapest place to get them at locally is. I need a couple of 0 guage to 2 4 gauge distro blocks, neither has to be fused.

Well it ain't pretty, but the distro block I used was only 12 or 14 bucks... Got it from my stereo shop (ARA, Calgary), but I have since seen them in the Gregg Distributors catalog. There's an online catalog, give it a whirl... http://www.greggdistributors.ca/

Thanks for the info man. Just ordered 2 1/0 to 2x 4 distro blocks, a pos and a neg bat terminal, and a 5m rca cable for 72 bucks shipped and taxes included. Wicked deal if I may say.

I got everything I need now. I already have 60 feet of 0 gauge and 35 feet of 4 gauge, plus 6 ring terminals, and all the tools to hook them up. Just gotta wait for my second amp to come in, do the big 3, make a wall, and wire everything up. Ya, I got a lot ahead of me.
