    Anyone have some personal experience on a 0 gauge they can recommenced for bang for the buck?

    Why do you need to run the ground wire too? Just use the chassis.

    Unfortunately, I have not been near power wire retailers for several years so I can't really give a current indication of best bang for the buck.

        Well ive heard of people, and have had first hand experaince where that didnt work so well. I suppose i could try it and if it doesnt work well then i could get more.

        There stuff is kinda hit or miss. Actually its part of the reason why i am doing this. Junky ass battery terminals



        So how much would i need to run underneath the car one way? 25 feet?

            I know this is for stereo equipment but i have had couple of friends who run Monster terminals and swear by them. They replace the stock junk ones your talking about. I don't know exactly where to get them but i know there out there.

            And for my stereo i ran 4GA from the stock battery location to my right trunk vent (My lobster was there) using 30 feet with plenty left over for ground.

              Auto zone 0 gauge, black/yellow jumper cables! There is a plug in the firewall. Run them through the fire wall and under the carpet straight to the trunk. I think its the cleanest.

                ... use the chasis... you want the ground as short as possible....
                sand down to bare metal and torque the bolt your using...
                i use rockfordfosgate stuff. if you can findsomeone who works at bestbuy sometimes they'll hook you up i got a 4gague RF kit for ~40 bucks
                if you're running 1/0 i hope your not running a seperate ground unless you're running another battery in the back and then i dont know why you're asking for advice here

                  what would be the down side to running the ground all the way to the trunk on a relocation other than more cable? i ran mine all the way back with no issues.
