Default basic questions

Hey guys, i have a few basic questions about grounding and sub/port placement. If i have a back battery, is it necessary to ground it to the front battery, or could i just ground it to a solid point on the chassis in the back? Should i ground my amps off the battery or to the same ground point as the battery? What is the minimum distance that should be between the sub/port and the back of my trunk? I drive a scion xb so I dont have much depth to work with in the trunk area. thanks guys

for grounding yes you can just ground the back battery at a solid spot in the back, but it would help also haveing a ground to the front.. in my way of thinking the more grounds the better. and also ground ur amp to the battery not to the same spot the battery is grounded too, and the minimum distance for the port should be no less than ur port opening.

i have seen alot of trunk setups get loud with the port very close to the back. the xb is the one thats kind of box shaped right? you can ground youe amp to the front battery or the chassis. if youre going for numbers you can actually gain a few tenths by grounding it to the battery
