Battery relocation

I'd like to make this a write up for the gen 2 section. I am doin a battery relocation on my 93 ls hatch. I've got the battery and the sealed battery box with vent tube and I've got a steel plate on order so that I can mount the box and battery hold down bolts to where ever I need them so I'm placing the battery behind the passenger backseat. I've also got 2 gauge power wire aswell both power and ground cables with battery terminals.

So now that leaves me with needing to buy 2 power distribution blocks one for one to split off for subwoofer and other for chassis power which then runs to another distribution block in the engine bay and then connect the factory power cable to the distribution block. I'm lookin into getting a circuit breaker rated for 100 amps or should I go 120 amps? The amplifier power cable will not be on the circuit breaker as it is protected by 2 fuses. 1 on cable, one on amp. As for the distribution blocks, will marine 2 post distribution blocks work? They have protective covers for the wire and are rated at 48dcv max and 600 amp max 3/8 posts.

I will post more as I go and acquire the rest of the items needed and will provide pics aswell as I move along the process. It may take a Lil while as I'm not making as much money at this moment but I will try to keep this updated as I'm hoping to have this done on tax return or sooner. Feel free to add in anything I'm forgetting or I'll draw up a diagram later on if need be. Thank u

The box will sit on top of and be bolted to the steel plate using the supplied studs with the box which also serve as the battery tiedown bolts aswell. The steel plate in turn will be bolted to the car and will allow for use and removal of spare tire without removal of the plate.

OK so I got the steel plate I'll do pics tomorrow when I clean out the back to mark all my drill holes and to find out where exactly I can drill on the chassis.

Never mind the wires, but that is how I'm going to have things set up. you can also use my crude drawing for reference.

The plate will be under the carpet so as to not be seen. This is my basic wiring setup.

This is where the amp will sit. I've measured every thing and will have plenty of room for my wires and the circuit breaker and the power block.

So I've decided to add a capacitor to my stereo as I'm doin my battery relocation. It's gonna be a tight install as everything will be in that gap between battery box and sub box.
