I'm putting the finishing touches on the system today, and i have a few questions...might be adding some more as i go along
remote turn on wire:
is using 18awg wire to the ground and to caps for the 12v power source ok?
I have run out of 4awg wire...
i had enough, but the way i installed the amps was stupid, instead of having all the power wire terminals facing the middle, theyre facing out, so im using that much more wire...and thus i ran out cuz of my own stupidity
and im not going to turn them around b/c im just too lazy
question is...i have my amp that powers my components...putting out roughly 200watts to each crossover
i had 8awg running to the amp ever since i first got it installed til now, now im using 4awg, but i ran out when it came to the ground, if i use 8awg for the ground instead of 4, do you think this will cause a ground loop?
the 8awg will be run from the amp to a distro block, so only about 1-2ft will be used b/t there
distro block for ground:
the way i have it set up, all my the grounds from the amps are going to a distro block(unfused of course), from there, ill have about 4 inches of 1/0awg that runs to a screw which i will have for the ground
the distro block is setup with 4 4awg terminals on one side, and 3 1/0awg terminals on the other
question is...i need to hook up a ground for the caps too, i can run 1/0awg to the block (From the cap) even though its on the same side as the 1/0awg which will be the actual ground right?
i dont have hardly any experience in distro blocks...and im sorry if i wrote a novel for a simple question, i just didnt want to leave anything out that might be important
