    Guys (and gals), I need some help wiring up my two amps. I have two Pioneer 4200s and a Rockford Fosgate dual amp wiring kit. Most of the parts I have figured out, but I'm a little confused with these...

    Left is the 4G ground wire, but I'm not sure where to hook it up...

    I'm assuming the top wires top right are the 8G power split to the two amps, but they're different colors...

    And I believe it was a mistake, but I have two distribution blocks. I only need one, right?

    Here's the 8G out of the distro block. Two are for the two power leads to the amps, but what is the third for? Is this also a mistake? Should this only have two outs instead of three?

    This is the 4G in from the battery on the distro block. Just for size reference...

    You can use one distro block to combine the 2 ground and then run the big ground wire to grounded spot (like under a seat belt bolt, but make sure to sand the paint down a little bit first.) The top two wires are two different colors because the black is for a ground and the red is for the power. You will need to cut those in the appropriate lengths.

    Having an open port in the distro block will eventually come in handy. You could use it for new accessories further down the line.
