  3. 12 volt power

    Ah Tim.... Tut Tut Tut...... Not Pretty at all. That figure 8 cable is good for about 8Amps Max. Can & Will run warm and sticky under full load! looks a little messy in the dark well ! Accidents DO happen! get yourself another enclosure and panal mount everything inside with main take off cable runs (6 AWG = 37A to a distribution bus inside from Car Audio bits) and individual lead off cable runs (12 AWG = 10A i.e. power extention lead cable is good stuff and insulated). some nice panel leds. and rocker switches nice PS though.
