Default Power Distrubution Block Source? (for lights and toys)

Hello,
I'm about to add Supertones and 2 sets of aux lights to my car. To tidy up the install, I'd like to use a power distribution block (preferably fused) to break out the positives, and a power distribution block to collect the grounds. I've seen some options from the car audio scene, but none of them will work. All the car audio ones are to big. I need 14 (preferred) or 12 (if I have to) gauge outs with a 4 or 8 gauge in. All of the car audio ones I can find are 4 or 8 gauge out and 0 or 4 gauge in. WAY more than I want to deal with!

Anyone know of a source for smaller gauge power distribution blocks or some other device to do the same thing?

Thanks,
Ty

Neither the picture nor the catalog page is terribly informative. Those are 1/4" spade connectors coming out of the near side to be run to each load, right? How does the power get into the block? Are there an equal number of spade connections on the back side (not what I'm looking for) or one larger connection (exactly what I want)?

Thanks for showing that to me!

I ended up seeing something like what you linked to at West Marine at Waytek. It's not what I was thinking of to begin with, but I think it might end up working. I would have to find some way to splash proof it though.
