Where does everyone ground their amps in the rear hatch? Are you guys using existing bolts or drilling your own? Also would it be OK to ground my amp and lc7i to the same point?

right now I have it grounded to one of the seat bolts, when I pull the rear apart to do all the dynamat, I plan on drilling a hole somewhere to drill and mount a ground stud (basically a ground adapter that will bolt into the car and the has another nut for the power wire)

and yes, when ever installing components, you always want to try to use the same grounding points so that you don't get ground loop

what about the stud used for the stock sub enclosure. I have an st1 so this is just an open stud.

it should be ok to use (modern spot welded bodies make no promises)

but you would have to sand all the paint down to shiny metal where the wire will make contact.
