Here are a couple of photos of my boot install. This amp rack was completely fabricated by myself at home. Not bad what the right tools and a bit of know how can do hey...!
Offcourse its all JL Audio. Nothing but.
Nice and neat, plenty of boot space. It's all good.

Where there's a will there's a way. The rack i designed also swings down so in the event i may need to service the amps, i dont have to remove the whole thing.

do you have a 0 gauge from the body back to the battery. you should if you don't cos your taking 0 gauge so you gotta give 0 gauge back otherwise you would have power restricted. Think of it this way - Supercharger with a 1/4 inch exhuast pipe on the other side would be useless.

Cheers

nah cos the amps are running off 4g, the 0g runs to a distro and is powering the amps with 4g, therefore i only need a 4g grounding wire from each amp.

Nah he means battery to body grounding, not amp to body.
If your runnin 0g power off the battery you should have a 0g ground from the battery to the body of the car so it can charge properly.

ATM I have 0 guage power off the battery and what looks like 18g (yes i know... its silly) grounding the battery to the car, atm whenever I start my car the battery light is on, I'd say thats why too...

ED has better earthing wire then EL (boxcar engineering) but I'd still supplement it cooki.
I used to have a bass hit headlight dimming problem in old car.
Ran a length of 4g to chassis, along with factory earth to block, and it lessened it a s**t.
