    earthing 2 amps.

    im currently doing a boot install. just got another amp to run 6x9s.
    the way im putting the amp is at the back just behind seats and was wondering if i am able to connect second amp earth cable from the main amp cable (if that makes sense). ive got the main earth connected behind the rear light on passenger side. Or would it be better to get a longer earth cable to run from same point.


    cheers


    will post pix of progress/completed install.

    Your best bet IMO would be to get a thicker earthing cable and run this into a distrubution block then run both cables seperatly to that

    rear seat bolts provide great earthing points that are out of sight.
