Not sure where to mount the holders.

I'm thinking right under each amp though.

is 8" too far away from the amp?

Gonna drill a hole at terminals then bring it back up right under the amp, then back under again to battery.

I don't think 8" is too far from the amp.

I'd actually put it much closer to the batteries. The fuse is intended to protect the wire if there's a short to ground. Right now, if your fuse holder shorted out to ground before the fuse, the wire would burn up and possibly start a fire...

So should I fuse battery to sub amp, battery to 4 channel amp, and battery to battery, as well as battery to alt?

Both batteries in the back.

Only fuse is right before sub amp, lol...

IF battery to battery, fuse in between both or right at terminals for both (2 fuses)

If you only have that one fuse I would take it off the amp line completely and put it on that pinkish wire on the bottom left of the last picture as close to the battery as feasible. Might also want to secure those batteries somehow. Even spray foam around them to hold them in place is better than nothing.

Otherwise the amps look great there!

Yes, you should fuse all of those things.

I don't run fuses between my batteries because I have them securely mounted

Also, secure those batteries down! Your positive and negative posts are awfully close together in the middle. I'm surprised they haven't shorted when you turn corners
