HA the base doesn't even require the decal anymore. I just keep forgetting to take it off.

There is an amp wire on the battery but it is the smaller blue wire. The big wire u see is coming from the alternator power. I am running underdrive pulleys. The wire is part of the "big 3" upgrade.

Negative battery to chassis
engine to chassis
alternator power to battery power

I'm only running a 300w amp to a 10" sub.
