    Thanks!

    That's fine. They're all hooked together internally. Just like having a built in distro block in the battery.

    Hey John,

    You got pics of your alternator connection? Just curious if your Honda's alt location is the same as mine. How did you wire it? Did you have to go underneath the car or remove anything?

    Theres one up there.. not real descriptive though.

    The bolt has a plastic collar on it that you'll need to break off to fit another ring terminal on there.

    Most Honda's are the same. I could reach it from the top. It was a real bitoch though

    Should I even buy a wire crimper to do the Big 3? I don't own one and I don't want to mess things up by crimping through a more ghetto way like a table vice.

    Re: Official CarAudio.com Big 3 Thread

    Ive done alt to battery, battery to audio, but not the chassis to ground. I was wondering if it would be best to ground from the alt chassis to the battery. This is because i remember hearing the chassis is really only = to 4 awg and either way with a wire or without, there is resistance.

    Your alt is already grounded through the engine block.
    The ground points that everyone is using have resulted the greatest results vs other points.
