Ok, I installed my 4004 tonight... finally...

I have only one question really, I have a set of component speakers up front, and this amp is running to them, is having a hissing sound coming from them, normal? Or what, and if not, how should I fix it, or look into fixing it?

Thanks. ;-)

No, could it be due to a bad ground?

And another thing, I was talking to my local car audio store owner, and he told me that I DON'T need to run a ground from the battery to a distribution block to my amp... and that a proper chassis ground will be more than sufficient............. is this true?

In a word? Yes. :)

lets put it this way, a proper chassis ground is FINE. and no you don't NEED a ground from the battery to the amp....however the battery negative is the BEST ground...just takes more wire

Even with all that added resistance in there?

That's what he was mainly concerned with.
