    0 gauge ground wire runs

    Do you run from battery under the hood or the grounded location in the trunk?I already have two runs of power wire from the the battery underunder the hood each run is fused.

    Re: 0 gauge ground wire runs

    u do a run of ground from batt to batt


    UNLESS u are able to ground the front battery to the frame and the rear battery to the frame. then u do not need to run a 15+ foot long wire of ground....

    Re: 0 gauge ground wire runs

    When you have multiple runs of 1/0 you usually do the same amount of runs back to the front and ground at the back.

    Re: 0 gauge ground wire runs

    So basically let's say I have 2 runs power from battery to the amp.I need to run 2 runs of ground from my grounded location in the trunk to the distribution block.That sound right?

    Should that one run from the battery be ran opposite of my power wire?Right now my power is running down the driver side.
