I grounded mine to the frame where the jack was behind the passenger seat. It had to come out anyway for the box. I sanded it to bare metal and secured it with a nut and bolt. My power wire is run under the cab and comes up through that rear deck also.

If I get a few minutes here at work I'll try to get you a pic or two.

I definitely have more work to do. It looks nice and clean in this picture, but my ground wire is massively short and run right in front of the sub, the RCAs are noisy as hell, and I need 4ga to 1/0 gauge adapters for my amp inputs.

TRYNA MAKE DIS SHIT CLEAN YA DIG

Yeah they're cheap as hell, haha. I'm gonna do another round of ordering stuff on Friday when I get paid.

But no, they're on the other side of the truck as the power/remote wire.

Can the remote wire really put off that much interference? My remote is molded into my rcas.
