Stereo installation questions?

I am installing a stereo in my F350 7.3. The stereo will have two amplifiers. Does it matter which battery (passenger or driverside) I use to supply my 12 volt to the amplifiers?

run it from the drivers side battery. There is a good spot to run it through the firewall on that side and if you run the power there, run the signals on the passenger side. There are more power wires on the drivers side that would interfere with the signal anyway.

Passenger side battery is my recomendation ( at least on mine that's where the alternator ties into on mine) Run a large gauge cable from there to a distribution block close to your amps. I also recomsnd a block for your grounds too.
