Yes you can, since I put the new XS batt in my trunk, all my amp grounds go straight to it.

The source of Power and ground is battery so if it's close, it would be wise to do so.

Also, cables do not explode. What you had was a meltdown due to resistance.

IF it were truly 8awg wire, i'm curious what fuse was put on that line because that would tell me if the cable or the installation caused the problem.

Quick question,

How do you install fuse holders like this?
StreetWires ZN1-ILAGU 4 AWG In Line ZN1 Series AGU Fuse Holder

How do you put the fuse back in if you take it out after installing????????

Do you pull it out, add the Wire to the end of it and put it back in?

Only if the rear battery itself is properly grounded.

You slide the whole system out of the insulation until you can get to the fuse. Replace fuse, then slide the whole system back in.

Those blocks are too much trouble.

IF you can find some insulated MIDI Fuse holders, i'd get those instead as they are manufactured as low as 30A now.

Alright guys, I ripped out all of my old wiring and finally installed the Knu kit.

Sound wise nothing has changed, my system still sounds the same. Hopefully it holds up and I don't have anymore technical issues.

I installed all of the wires except for the speaker wires and RCA's. I heard good speaker wires really make a difference in sound quality, is that true?

It's called psychoacoustics and no.

The only way different wire will make a notable difference is if your running wire to small for the current load and then change to appropriate size and even then there's a chance you won't notice it

As Shizzon said, it's psychoacoustics. There's a guy offering $1million to anyone who can tell the difference between $300/ft speaker cable and coat hanger wire in a blind test.
