    Power cable question

    I installing a stereo for the first time and was wondering what guage power cable I should get. I have a 5 channel amp and a 2 channel amp. The power cable will run into a power core 15 farad cap then from that into the amps and the TIDD10 that I have. The TIDD10 will be mostly full running my screens my head unit and assorted other stuff. I thought someone said run a 1/0 cable. the other problem is that I want to add a curicuit breaker but is the one for that size wire going to be set to high to even protect anything?

    Probably looking quite big around 16mm to 25mm (unsure on gauge sizing- 1-2), as for a circuit breaker this only is there to protect the cable noe the equipment so nothing more than 140 - 200 amp at my best attempt. I could be wrong but thats what i have run for my 5 Ch and no probs so far
