Default new build questions

at what point would I need three runs of 0 gauge? I'm going to have 6 hc2000's, a optima yellowtop up front and a 300 amp alternator. I've got two runs of 0 now, would I need a third?

How many amps are you amplifiers pulling? You'll need enough 1/0 to be able to carry as much current as your amps can draw. Good 1/0 wire can carry ~300amps per run.

I guarantee you that warhorse will draw much more current than just 250 amps. Maybe 250amp fuse per run going into the amp.

Since most of your amperage draw will be from the back batts, you really only need enough wire to carry whatever current your alt can put out. I would think 2 runs would be fine, but hell, keep adding runs until you stop seein gains. Lol.

250A for a Warhorse. Lmao.
