It will work fine off the one run if you have a battery in the back near the amp since it has 2 inputs. I would hope yoy have an extra batt with the 4500.

You can also get a set of dual inputs from toolmaker if you want.

Buy my 30ft of 4/0 cable in the classifieds. I run the same stuff in my truck and that has made the biggest difference so far.

I got a battery in the back and saw a pretty big improvement from when I switched my one run of 1/0 to 2 runs of 4/0.

yup 2 runs of each is what I was thinking. But for what you'll pay for all that 1/0, you could have just bought my 30ft of 4/0 for way less and have way more copper than 2 runs of knu.
