    ground question

    so yeah..i know its supposed to be as short as possible, within reason, to the amp.

    my impression that is, if you have like a long ground..you will have distortion?

    if thats true, then why isnt that the case when you run ground cable back to the battery? or does it still?

    Re: ground question

    no. there are lots of installs with a long ground needed. mines longer than i would want it. but it works fine, as long as the connection is clean. and has the lowest/no resistance possibal.

    Re: ground question

    is there an optimal ground length, or just do it so it works (keeping in mind having a solid, clean connection)

    Re: ground question

    optimal would be 12" and under. i know mine is like 2.5-3 feet because it goes from the front of my trunk to the back where it is bolted in at, then i have 2 1.5feet wires coming out of the distro block and i have no issues. how long are you thinking yours is gonna be.
