Mein Auto: 97 528I
Aftermarket amp install in e39

I've installed probably 20-30 successful sound systems...however with the sensitive electrical system in my 97 528i I am a but hesitant. Is there anything I should know before getting started? I have a kicker distribution block coming directly off my battery positive post and a grounding lug directly off the negative post. Is this a good idea ? I know it probably sounds like a stupid question, but no sound is worth damaging my car's electrical system so I have to ask. Also...Ill be running 1000w rms in a 1ohm load. Basically, I'm just wanting to know is there anything that I should do differently than I would if I were doing an install in, say.....a chevy s-10 ??? Should I run a kinetik battery with isolator ??? Or can I just go with the set up I have??? Thanks everyone for taking the time.
