    which wire and how to ground it

    i have 1 14ft piece of 3/8 wire and 1 18ft piece of 1/2 wire and that is without insulation. now i have a 02 accord with a 2400 xtr pro..and was wondering do i have to ground it to the battery with one run all the way. is that best.. and i heard that grounding to chassis causes engine noise..and its not good for the electrical system to have the amp running threw the car....and should i use the 1/2 wire on power or ground? which needs it bigger...? and what size fuse should i run with this setup...? what would be the best and most benificial install,,

    power and ground need to be the same size. usually the shortest ground to a bare metal/chassis from the amp is recomended.

    there are a couple of grounding threads and ESPECIALLY "BIG 3 Threads" you may want to research first...

    then ground it back to the batt. but the ground and power should be the same size usually.
