    Jeezus... The all caps is hideous.... Looks like you're screaming at us. Please stop.

    A distribution block takes one larger (lower AWG) power line and splits it up into multiple smaller (higher AWG) power lines to power multiple devices.
    It allows you to run a single power line to your battery for aesthetics and simplicity.

    If you're running a single amplifier and no other components that need 12v power from the vehicle, you don't need a distribution block.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

        You don't need one, but it makes for easier wiring.

          well if your running 0awg wire then yes you will want to use a distribution block your JL amp uses a 4awg wire and your kenwood amp uses 8awg wire. so get a block that does a single 0awg in and 2 4awg outs and just make one run with 4awg and the second run with 8awg.
