Anybody know if running my power wire on the driver side is ok?

Running power down the driver side is fine. There is a plastic channel with the main harness, you might be able to fit your power wire in there depending on what gauge you're running.
LOC, you want to pull the signal from one of the rear doors. As for a grounding needs to be within 18" of where the amp is mounted. I removed a seat bolt, scraped away the paint and used that. The converter shouldn't need to be grounded unless you get noise. I've had instances where grounding the converter actually produced noise.

Ok i will take your info into consideration.Thank You. So you are saying i need to tap into my rear speakers on the door panel? or could i tap into it where the stock amp is in the trunk space? Also, i have five wires on my converter. assuming two for negative and two for positive and one for the ground right?
I will be finishing this install up today so any help much appreciated thanks alot.

You can tap them at the amp in the back. One pair is for left and the other for right. The 5th wire is the ground that you may or may not need.
Also, make sure there is a fuse within 18" of the battery terminal.
