SOURCE: i wondering were the best

Assuming this is for in the trunk, you could use one of the taillight mounting bolts but I'd recommend sanding some paint down on sheetmetal near the amp itself and using your own self-tapping bolt on interior steel. You wanna keep that cable as short as possible, after all.

SOURCE: Where would be the best place to put ground wire

It is always best to run that ground to the battery, directly.

I've everything hooked up right and the subs not hitting but it does work because I checked it so what am I doing wrong?

Make sure you've run your ground wire properly and the connection to the battery is sound. Check that the wire ends are clean and rated for your amp and woofer. Make sure you have a ground wire running from the amp to something metal on the car so the system is well grounded. Check that your switch wire running to the head unit is tapped into the correct wire such that when that wire is active(I.e. Head unit powered on) the amp also turns on and relays the signal to your woofer. Buying a wiring kit is the easiest way to do all of this as most come with all necessary wires, color coded, with instructions if you still can't figure it out.

Subwoofer is not playing

It is hard to say. The sub-woofer has its own amplifier, although it is supplied the sound data from the main amplifier. It could have a problem with the battery power circuit (Sub-Woofer Amplifier Connector Pin 6, LIGHT GREEN/VIOLET) or it could have a problem with the GROUND circuit (Pin 2, BLACK/LIGHT GREEN) Or it could possibly not be receiving the signal from the main amplifier (Pin 7, BROWN/ORANGE "+"), (Pin 8, RED/BLACK "-"). Or it could be that either the sub-woofer speaker is blown, or the sub-woofer amplifier is defective.
There is also a "High Audio Mute" circuit that connects between the main amplifier and the sub-woofer amplifier.

The sub-woofer is located behind the rear panel, so you will have to pull the rear panel to be able to get to all the bolts that hold the sub and plastic type box in place. It can be a pain to remove, it has about 4-5 bolts in the box.

I installed an aftermarket radio in my 2003 ford expedition and my amp won't power up nor will my rear sub woofer play.

Do you have a battery positive wire as well as a switchable power wire? Is it properly grounded? Double check for power and ground. Aftermarket radios have two blue wires for switchable power. one for an amp, and the other for a power antenna. Make sure the right one is used.

Sub woofer?

It is a tedious task, however simple if you have patience. In order to get the sub woofer out, you need to take out the paneling and floor in the back. Start with the plastic knobs near the rear hatch door and then pull the floor back and the panel with the cup holder. I believe i needed to take back the panel on the inside of the rear pillar as well. Everything snaps back in place, so it is not a big deal. Just don't force anything so that you don't crack the plastic. The subwoofer is mounted from the back, so that is the only way to actually get to the hardware holding it in place. Otherwise it will just spin and spin if you try from the front. i replaced mine about 2 years ago with an 8" Kicker, however i think the factory sub had better sound. The amp is designed specifically for that sub. However, it did blow out and the kicker gets the job done. Good Luck!!

Subwoofer not working properly after a few mins playing

Get a hold of the woofer connector (I believe its brown) right by the whoofer and move it around/press it/disconnect and reconnect and check if the woofer comes on. There is a bad connection in the connector for the woofer itself. I have a 2001 GLE my self and that's what I found to be the problem with mine.
