Best way to connect 8 gauge wire to 12-16 gauge wire?
Finally have all my car audio and power parts in (amp, sub, amp install kit). Back seats and paneling have been removed from my car. Have a remote audio video switcher, as well as an inverter and other goodies. Anyway, just a few quick questions:
I will have 4 gauge power cable from battery to to trunk distro block, at which point it will branch off into 3x8 gauge cables to feed an inverter and and amplifiers. These lead back to another ground distro block.
I need some smaller 12 volt power lines to power a Sirius tuner, the amplified video switchbox, and maybe a rear view camera. Whats' the best way to get 12-16 gauge cable from the above setup? It's kinda unwieldy to wire crimp the 8 gauge and 16 cables together. I'm thinking I could solder one end of the 12 gauge cable to one end of the 8 gauge cable and then put that entire assembly into the distro block connector.
