    Amplifier ground

    Was hooking my amp back up an decided to look at the ground. I got my wires installed at a RadioShack near by. Pretty disappointed I paid for this

    Where is that? It's not good, but atleast the paint is scraped away a little bit. I didn't know Radioshack installs. Don't go back there, and do it over yourself.

    If in your trunk, I'd drill hole by spare tire well, and make ground on car frame. If under hood, engine chassis
