Default Adding A Fuse Box-Questions

I picked up a neat little fuse box at a flea market last week & I'm wondering how to power it. I see 1 lug at the bottom of it which, I believe feeds all 6 circuits. Problem is-where is the neg. go? In other words, say I'm installing a radio-2 ires-1 pos the other neg. I'll hook the pos to fuse #1 spade, but where does the neg feed from? Thanks for any input!

So, just to clarify--I take the pos lead from the + POS side of the battery and connect it to that stud on the bottom of the fuse box. That powers the entire 6 ports on the fuse block, correct? Then, if I take a lead from the - NEG side of the battery and, say, snake it to where I'm installing the fuse box (over the passenger side storage tray-2003 CC DS) I can tap into it multiple times (6) for the neg of my accessories, right? Just want to make sure before I fry anything! TIA

I would use a bus bar. On mine, both + and - have 6ga cables run to them:

Are you adding/using a voltage reducer or planning on feeding 12v from a single battery?

Remember when mounting the bus bar, do not screw it in to the frame or any metal that can ground it to the frame --(no grounds to the frame on an electric cart)
