Adding two Arc Audio Moto 600 amps QUESTION?

My question is the power. I was advised to use 8 guage power wire for one amp but my question is now that Iím hooking up two amps can I just run 1 power wire and use an adapter to hook the second amp up for power? If so what guage should the main power wire be???

A lot of guys use distribution blocks for dual amp setups. 4 ga. from the battery to distribution block and 8 ga from block to amps.

Freedom isn't free, remember to thank a vet.
2018 CVO RG lava orange, 117 Stage 3, 14" F47 and a few chrome extras. Boom crap gone.
2016 RG Special Cosmic Blue, 120ST with Dragos 2:1 and TTS tuner, FBI drop seat kit and JNR air ride. Stock audio long gone.

This is the only proper way to do it (assuming you don't want to run dedicated 8 ga. wire for each AMP clear to the battery).

Gotcha guys. Went to local audio shop got the wires i needed and a distribution block for pos and neg (dam it was high priced lol). Got all this power but my speakers are all over the place. Got the Arc 602ís in the fairing, Memphis Audio 6.5 in lower fairing and Polk audio 6x9 450w in lids. We will see how it sounds when I get everything hooked up. Probably end up getting different speakers later

There is a older review by Gann on the other forum in the audio section with the 602s in the lowers. Might want to read it.
With all that good clean power some pro audio speakers would be bad ass

2009 Road Glide. 16 in Vindikta Wild Cats. Aquatic AV, Stinger 700X4 to MMatts, Audiopipe horns.
6900pros in the lids w/ sspn.4 1000d, tuned with DD Audio DSI-2. S&S 106, lifters, push rods and AC. Drago 2. CycleRama 575. Progressive monotones -1in. 12in. HD adjustable rear shocks. Painted inner fairing. Tuned with TTS. Blacked out!
