just wondering how people have run their RCA cords and how long they are

i have 3 RCA
1xfront
1xrear
1xsub

all run from deck, under centre consul, under carpet behind driver, under rear seat where 1 goes to factory amp (5m length - just reaches) and 2 (fronts and sub 2x8m - way too long) go up shock/spring tower then under rear parcel shelf to amp mounted where stock sub was.

has anyone measured whats needed if i am to make my own and does anyone run the cables a different way??

Just measure them using your ones that are too long and mark it off. Then use that as you're measurement.

It'll differ a bit from one personn to the next but to give you an idea, I've go my RCAs running to the "high part" of the boot and they're 5m long.

Hope that helps a little bit.

Also, I take it that you have a sedan.
