Do NOT under any circumstances do that.
First of all, you cannot fit an amp in the glovebox. Really. Get an amp and try.
If you put an amp anywhere than the trunk (like under a seat, in the engine compartment, etc) the amp WILL overheat and/or get killed by harsh conditions. In our cars, the trunk is the only place, reallistically, where you can place and amp.
And if you hook an amp up to a factory hot wire (which runs though the fuse box) you will blow a fuse. And blow it again, and again. And it you were to say replace that fuse with a higher rated one (BAD idea) you've got an electrical fire on your hands.
What you need to do, is get one of those amp kits (Wal-Mart has them). Hook the power wire they give you up to the battery, then run it through the door into the gromet (look at my website for pictures), then along the passenger side of the car under the door sills all the way to the trunk.
Then find a good spot to ground it in the trunk, I suggest removing the jack and using one of the case'* mounting points as a ground. Make sure you take steel-wool and expose the bare metal to make a good ground.
