So I've got this 2006 Infiniti G35 Sedan AWD and want to put a heavier sound system in. I already got a 370 amp Alternator which i haven't put in yet. I know where all the Grounds go but I can't figure out where or how to run the Power wire. My Vehicle's Battery is connected to a harness-looking thing which i don't think i have to mess with. I will attach a Photo for better clarity. Any help will be much appreciated.

The best place is to gang onto the starter cable terminal pointed by the arrow. The starter is un-fused so you can route from there to your circuit breaker for the amp. The alternator will be a problem, the stock one is fused 120A so you'll need to disconnect the existing wiring from the battery card and add a fused harness dedicated to the alternator. The guys who sell upgrade alternators usually also sell upgrade cable kits, if you didn't get one then you'll definitely need to.

Ok so I already have all the 0/1 gauge wires. Now all I have to do is run the power wire from the arrow down to the alternator and in between I put a fuse?

Yes, the alternator and amp should both connect there. They should both have appropriate fusible links or breakers.

I know it's been over a year, but maybe someone that knows will see this.
How did you attach your big 3 wire to the alternator???? I spend an hour under the car trying to get to the alternator's pos post without success!
