    That's what I'm thinking about going with.

    i like the audison thingy, can't go wrong w/ stinger either.
    Im glad Iím not the only one that didnít like Knuís compression nuts. Definitely a deal breaker for me.

    Cool, so i am definitely not alone in using fused distribution blocks to split power from a Main +12v run into multiple amps I think i am going to grab one of those Audison all in one modules. I wont use the ground side until i decide to rip everything out and re mount my amps, but can definitely take advantage of the fused side now.

    I wouldn’t even consider using a non fused power block. I went with this one that last time

    I really like these Street Wire blocks.

    Yep, those Streetwires CBR44M fused distribution blocks with the Maxi fuses are my favorite as well. I bought a boatload of them when they were dirt cheap and have used manynof them in various installs throughout the years.

    It's a shame that they don't make these any more. I recently sold one on the other site for a reasonable price and my FS thread got a bit comical, LOL.

    And I didn't read the first page, but ANY TIME you step down in wire size/gauge from a larger wire you must appropriately fuse each smaller wire with a fuse that's less than the wire's max amperage capacity at the very least. This is to protect the wire itself, and you & your vehicle. The protection of the device at the end of the wire is secondary.
