You need to use a distribution block.

It accepts one larger cable in and provides a numnber of smaller cables out.

Use a fused distribution block for the power with 4 gauge in and 2 (or 4) 8 gauges out. Use as fuse size that matches or is slightly smaller than that of the amp to ensure protection.

Then use a non fused distribution block for the negative the same way.

A 4 way fused block is around $35 + fuses
A 4 way non fused blcok is around $20 no fusses needed.
