Amplifier Wire hookup

I also have a 2011. LS Fleet. Should I hook my power wire to:
1. the post on the under hood fuse box
2. the positive battery post bypassing the AMP loop
3. the positive battery post running through the AMP loop

I have tried searching this forum and I think the answer is the Post attached to the fuse box.

4 gauge power wire with fuse ran to distribution splitter in the trunk
2.5F cap in trunk from the splitter
600watt amp from the splitter
Seperate grounds
Single sealed 10" for rock punch

I am trying to prevent headlight dimming and the battery saver message. Nothing is hooked up yet so have not seen either issue. Just want to do it right. Please move to a new area if this is incorrect area.


2011 LS Upgrades so far: All speakers to Rockford Fosgate Triaxials, Headlights from Amazon with Slightly brighter bulbs, Swapped in an LT leather steering wheel to add Audio controls.
