Default Wire length...I'm worried what I bought isn't enough!

Hi,
I'm getting my 97 Bonneville this weekend and I bought a new system for it. I'm curious, is 17 feet enough for the power cable from the battery to the amp? That'* what I bought.

Thanks

I don't think it will be long enough but I'm not positive on that...

Maybe I'll have to put the amp under the front seat.

Will it be enough to put the amp on the back of the back seats?
