I put my system back together a few months ago, and I was wondering if one aspect is properly hooked up.

So it all starts with the power wire going to the positve terminal on the cap. Then the ground wire from negative terminal on the cap to the chassis (near the spare tire). Then the power wire being forwarded from the positive terminal on the cap to the amp. However I did not ground out the amp. Is this ok? System seems to work good other then the fact that when I turn the bass up it cuts out when I'm idling.

The amp needs to be grounded from the same negative post on the cap.

The cap sits inline between the battery and amp. Pos from battery to cap then from cap to amp. Same with ground. The ground can come from the body to the cap and then to the amp.
