Its basically the same as installing an AMP in your trunk.

I used 2 car audio power distrbution blocks in the engine bay to feed my powers and grounds into their own respective 2 gauge wire.

The negative grounds in the engine bay to bare metal on the frame.

The positive should run through the firewall and down one of the sides of the car under the carpeting to the battery.

Then ground the battery in the trunk to bare metal.

The Summit racing kit will come with instructions and everything you need for install (except no nice pretty power dist blocks like i used)

1) Remove battery.
2) Place in trunk in battery box.
3) Ground - battery in trunk.
4) Ground existing b- lead in engine bay.
5) Run proper gauge power wire from b+ lead in engine bay, to battery+ in trunk.
6) Install circuit breaker as close to engine bay as possible in battery+ lead.

Just a HIGH-Level overview of the process.
If you know nothing about electronics, this is something a stereo shop could do for you.
