    Re: where to ground

    i usually use one of the bolts on the shock/strut tower......sand down the paint and use that bolt. suspension components always are bolted directly to frame so you know you get a good frame ground

    x2 but if you have the second battery near the amp then why not ground it to the battery?? I'm sure you have THAT battery grounded to the frame somewhere don't you?

    2nd battery must be hooked to first battery, or defeats the purpose.

    use the battery

    Re: where to ground

    lol sorry for the wrong section. I meant is it better the ground the amp to the chassis or grounding it 2 my second battery saying that my 2nd battery is already grounded. Cauyse its a shorter distance from the ground position on my batt then trying to find a spot on the chassis

    Re: where to ground

    ground to battery neg. terminal. make sure batt is properly grounded to frame. I thought you were asking where you could ground your batt to
