How to connect 2 seperate 0 gauge wires together....

Just like the title says. I am currently running a 0 gauge power wire, but am reconfiguring my amplifier and crossover locations so I need to lengthen the wire a bit. I still have about 4 or 5 feet of 0 gauge wire, and want to use something to connect them. Imagine taking a fuse holder, but eliminating the fuse so that you could connect the two wires together. Anyone see anything like that? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Paul Moore

when it gets to that size they have to be bolted together, they can be soldered but u would need a mini tourch or somthing thats gonna get it hot enough

the fuse hold sounds good but the wouldnt be a bad idea to use a fuse in it a a precaution

Take the two wires ends and smach em together. Then twist to it looks like one wire. I usually wrap mechanics wire around it to hold it in place. Then take a torch and some soldering wire and get to work. The only problem is that the solder likes to drip off the wire. Try and keep her under 400 degrees. Also, use good heat shrink, the kind with the adhesive. Even if your soldering is shotty, that heatshrink is enough to hold her in place.

Just get you and ANL fuse holder, attach 1/0 gauge to each end, and put a 300A ANL fuse in it. That will give you your connection without worry of a blown fuse.

Well, that is what I was thinking, but I already have a 300A ANL fuse in my main fuse block by the battery. I guess it really doesn't matter seeing as how no one will see the second one.

It's just for a connection not really a safety measure. If you are competing, noone will really care about the additional fuse if it can't be seen.

They make 0 gauge wire connectors. I have one in my car. You put both ends in each side and turn a allen head bolt on each side to clamp down on the wire. Stinger made mine and I bought it from sounddomain.com
