For one thing, I would be running 0 gauge wire to a 1500W amp.
If what you're referring to is running your system for long periods of time without the car ON, then you're going to need some Optima yellow or red top batteries.

digital fuse block is just a fuse block that has a display for the current volts of your battery. Similar to what many capacitors have built in. :-)

Storytime!! lol, I was at the audio shop where I had just got my new Pioneer premier 470 CD player installed. (I also have an Alpine MRP-350 amp and 2 12" subwoofers). I thought I had turned the car on to test it all out... I didn't. Went to turn the car on and it wouldn't start. My car has an 85amp alternator and a POS factory battery.
