Two amps to battery

Ok guys and gals, I am wiring my two pbr amps to the battery and want to know how you did it. I am running out of room and wanting to see what y'all did. I have two eight gauge wires running down the neck and nowhere to put a fused dist. Block How and what did y'all do. Pics would be handy thanks Daniel.

I just ran one from the battery to the fairing and into a power distribution block. You can get them for all sizes of wire and set ups.

Really want the fuses easily accessible, either under seat or side cover. I would think you would want it really close the battery just in case of a short or issue with amplifier so you do not melt every wire in the wire gutter.

You can still have the fuse close to the battery. You run a small length of wire to a fuse holder under the seat or a side panel then out the the fairing where you mount the dist block then to the two amps.
I ran 8ga from the battery to the dist block then 10ga to my two amps with 10 ga ground wire to the fairing support. It's been like that for over a year and no problems.

I ran one 8 gauge wire to the fairing and have a distribution box there, I have 4 amps. My fuse is under the left side cover. Hope the pic helps.

I don't have abs so I have 2 fuses located where the abs module would be than I ran 2 8 gauge cables one to each amp that way if something happens hopefully only one amp quits.... I ran a third 8 gauge for ground to a lug on the amp mounting bracket for a common ground point.

My fuse is mounted in the left side cover too. Then it runs up the channel to the fairing. Im only running one amp but if I were running multiples Id have the fuse in the same place and the block in the fairing.

Thanks guys. I got it finally, had to make aluminum spacers to set it back a bit.

Spacer shot. Works great. I used to different color cables so I would know which amp wire went to the fuse block.
