    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?

    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.
