Its gonna be a big amp, 1200w rms, so I need to find a good ground for it in the trunk. Wheres the best place? just scrach the paint anywhere and drill a hole in the body? I've read that if you ground your amp good enough you dont need a capacitor, doubt it but I'll try it how it goes without one first.

TIA

Do you have folding rear seats? I used the bolt that's used as a latch for the rear seats as a ground. Unscrew the bolt, slide your ring terminal around the bolt, and replace the bolt. :) No problems yet... I don't think you'll avoid using a capacitor or battery though.

I lifted up the carpet on the bottom of the trunk, found a large bolt in the bakc left, untightened it a lil bit, put my wire around it and then tightened it back up, and with over a year of going still not a problem, also its probably larger then anything in the seats good luck
