Hey guys, I'm installing a 4-channel amp in my trunk. Where should I run my wires?

I know the main +12V power wire should run along the drivers side, but is it OK to run it near the fuel lines?

For RCA cables, should I run them in the middle or along the passengers side? Same question goes for speaker wires going to the front channel speakers, and amp turn-on wire.

Thanks for the help,

So speaker wires can run right next to RCA's and that'll be OK?

Or would it be better if I ran them down the middle? Or would that be worse since they'd be closer to the power wire?

thanks,

Where's a good place for the ground wire? Can I connect it to any part of the frame (after sanding off the paint), or are there certain spots that work better than others?

I'm probably gonna go search i-club for the answer, because that's such a stupid question. But I'd like to help create a definitive thread that has answers to most amplifier-wiring related questions, so here I am, acting like a pathetic noob who can't use the search function...

Sweet. I'm putting my amp behind the rear seat, in the same place you did (although mine's not quite as huge), and that particular bolt caught my eye the other day. Now that I know it works well for you, I think that it should be fine for me too.

Thanks for all your help, James,
