Disconnecting the battery question.

Hi Guy's,
Quick question: I'm going to have to disconnect the battery, as I want to connect an amplifier power lead to it.
Once the battery is disconnected, then reconnected, is there any process that needs to be followed?
The battery doesn't need to be re registered to the car or anything like that, does it?? Do the electric windows/sunroof need to be initialised??
Many thanks in anticipation!

None of the above, you may lose your clock settings and your trip mileage (depends how long it is disconnected) but everything is stored. Mind, dicsonnect the negative before positive and connect positive first.
