    Yes. In fact, go to Walmart and get the Scosche (sp?) wiring amp kit. I saw it today since I'm going to do be doing the same thing.
    It's a complete kit for $26 that includes two rca cable sets, 1 4 gauge wire that is like 16ft long, and then there's a power distribution block where you run two 8 gauge wires off from their to the amp. Go check it out. It's about the best deal you can get.

    Just make sure to use a distribution block and don't be electrical taping two powers together.. And try to use a Relay for the Remote power..

    I just bought that kit and have it wired up to my one amp (second amp is on the way). There is actually quite a bit of difference in power. The bigger the wire the better. I can't believe my old 8 gauge kit even held up.

    Bigger the wire = less resistance.
