help! Cannot get a ground!

I have tried everything shy of driving a 6 foot rod in the ground. Can anyone give me a trick on grounding a memphis amp?

Run a ground wire from the battery?

What kind of vehicle, where have you tried grounding?

sorry about your luck..... the only solution is to drive a 6' pole into the ground...



^ kind of vehicle might be key

I used the 10' ground rod from Home Depot, grounded the mast and the coax from the antenna, before it enters the house.

If you're talking about a car, most of them are made out of metal, shouldn't be a problem finding a ground point.
