Re: grounding question
Yeah, WAY under a half ohm. At a half ohm you would get a half volt drop across your ground for every amp flowing through the ground path. If you can measure the resistance of the ground that you choose directly with a basic DMM, it's not a good ground.

A seatbelt bolt is generally not a good ground point as typically they are spot welded on which adds resistance, so not a good idea overall.
I ground back to my battery but I also wired a small system with 1/0. Total overkill in my case. 300W should be completely fine with a normal chassis ground.
Precision is correct, follow their advice.
Actually that is totally backwards, the chassis is grounded to the battery. The ground plane in a car is the negative battery terminal, not the chassis.
