Distribution Block

Hi,

After checking my distribution block, there is no metal connector in any of the slots except the first one which already have a red cable in it.

Do you know what is that cable? If is it for the OEM amp, can I use that line to replace with JL Audio XD600/6?

What do you think is the best way to wire the 12V power?

I have read not all the slots are populated

I have read not all the slots are populated with blades (fussible links)from the factory
and on checking mine found this to be true . Whats is in it depends on which options were shipped with the car.

I have seen instances of people running one of the free slots and blowing out that strip on here so I would go for one of the main terminals on the battery.

If you blow any of the needed fuses on that strip you have to replace the whole thing.
There are three hot lines that run toward the front of the car in the attachment. I think it tells
you what they are but unless you have a free slot that is double wide I wouldn't use it at all.

Still wonder what that red cable coming from the first distribution jack.

The mystery of the distribution block fuse amp ratings has been solved!

The ratings are (PN 61146971370)

From inboard to outboard

250 (bolt on terminal)
100
80
100
IBS (apparently dedicated for the Intelligent Battery Sensing...so unknown)
50
100
Hardwire (last slot)

Are those ports always hot? Or are they switched according to the ignition?

Thank you in advance.

They are always hot if they are even populated

They are always hot if they are even populated with blades.
