Just bought a new amp, distribution block and wiring. Now I have questions.
I figured I'd save myself the headache and just post in the newbie section.
I just got a wicked deal on an amp and wiring kit and distribution block.
The amp is a Rockford Fosgate Punch p325.1 monoblock amp with:
397 watts RMS at 2 ohms
245 watts RMS at 4 ohms
The distribution block is a 8 gauge in and dual 8 gauge out and accepts 2 5AG fuses.
The wiring kit has a 20 foot 8 gauge power wire and everything else needed.
And lastly, the amp I already have running the speakers is a 120 watt MTX 4244 Thunder 4 channel amp running 18 gauge speaker wire into the harness and then 22 gauge stock speaker wiring to the stock speakers. This is powered by an 8 gauge power wire with a 30 amp inline fuse.
So my questions are as follow:
1. Is it okay to run all 8 gauge all around the distribution block, or is it too many amps for the wire?
2. What's a 5AG fuse?
3. How do I know how many ohms I'm running at?
