With a 370 amp alternator, is there a need to run more than one 0g power wire connecting the alternator, 2 batteries under hood and the 2 secondary batteries in the cab of a truck? If you're using dual inputs on your amps, I'm wondering if using a second run of power wire will help get the juice from the alternator to the batteries more efficiently, or if it will be needless money spent?

I'd say use two runs of 1/0 no need to bottle neck that beefy of an alt.

In damores section there’s something about that somewhere in there I know I spelt the name wrong lol

Not sure if I'm looking past it or using the wrong search words, but do you remember anything about the title or how long ago it was posted?
