Should be fine with dist block and 0 gauge input, that wire will handle like 400 or 500 amps of currrent. Unless you are gonna do more power later on your subs?

Easier to run the distrobution block, honestly. Then again, if you want to do a whole additional run, go for it. Personally, I've had my Kicker distros for quite some time, and I don't see them going anywhere until I add a secondary battery... no need for them then.
