I ended up just buying a 12 inch Rockford powered sub and it's just sitting in the trunk, the negative terminal isn't very long for some dumb reason

That's about what it is but it's a powered sub so the amp is already in the box so it's just laying speaker facing up towards the read of the trunk not really where I'd like it to be but what can I do It sounds perfect to what I wanted and I don't need lotta trunk space thats what the other vehicle is for

Well, any amp, wether it's built in or not, has to have a very thick short ground... Idk really, but it's just in case something goes wrong.

Well, I think he said he ran his wires next to each other on one side of the car. Yes, you should, if you have them down the same side, you'll get pretty bad alternator whine coming from the sub. So basically, every time you rev up, it will whine along with it.

Yeah... I kind of just looked at the best bang for the buck, and ended with an Alpine Type-R 12" and an Alpine MRX-M50 500watt amp...

Did you mount then in your doors? I'll still eventually add those door speakers for that mid bass my sub hits really nice deep notes but isn't real punchy. If you put them in your doors how did you wire your amp where did you put it?
