No, you need a distribution block, thats why they invented them.

You wont be able to fit two wires into the power terminal of the first amp. (Assuming you mean 1 wire from battery to first amp power terminal, then a different wire going from that first amps terminal (which already occupies a wire) to the second amps power terminal.)

There is no reason what-so-ever to do without a distribution block if you're running multiple amps. Dist. blocks are cheap. Why do without?

Heh... Dist. blocks are cheap he says. :-P

I paid $70 each for a pair of dist blocks! Heh heh. (JL Audio, 0 gauge in, four 4 gauge out). Then again, did it for purely cosmetic reasons, heh.. Most are just like $10-$30.
