i dont think you can over do wiring....the larger the Wire the less the resistance the battery will see....thats why guys who do dbdrag or bass race use multiple runs of wire from the battery to the amps or some sort of distribution device (copper blocks, distribution blocks, etc.) so you could probably get by on 2 or 4 guage but go ahead and use 1/0 in case you upgrade amps and run more Power you dont have to replace em....if your amp uses a smaller imput than 1/0 just get a distribution block they usually have step downs to go from 1/0 to 4 guage out....
