    What gauge wiring to use?

    I plan to be running power to the trunk of my car then into a fused distribution block and out to 3 things:

    - 250W Jaycar DC-DC Power Supply
    - Jaycar 4x190WRMS Amp
    - Jaycar 1x820WRMS Amp

    Can anyone suggest a wiring setup for this?

    I'm guessing 2 gauge from battery to distribution block, but can I get a 3-way block? What gauge would you guys/girls suggest for each component?

    Thanks.

    i am running a 1800w amp(4x300+1x600) and 160 w psu tru gauge 4, only fused for 80 A, so i could have gotten away with something like gauge 7 or 8,
    gauge 2..... jesiz, something like the electric companies uses in their high voltage lines
