I've run the power down the drivers side under the plastic carpet cover/holder thingys.

The RCA's are down the passenger side.

And I'm about to replace it all...

4GA through out. Currently I've got two 8GA cables running to the boot.

if you've got an auto, then there's the clutch pedal hole. easy. if not you'll be struggling to get some 8GA through one of the other holes there, and if not, you'll have to make a hole.

under the drivers side shocker under a big plate of metal. If you are at the front of the car look at the round thing that is infront of the steering wheel that every car has in the same spot. looking at that, down below and left so getting closer to the side of the car you will see a gromet. i put four gauge cable through it easy and it would prob even fit 0 gauge.


Cheers.

lol my clutch hoels filled and almost filled the two extra holes I've drilled next to it! (if you drill holes make sure you get a rubber gromet so the wires don't get cut).
And keep the RCA and power wires as far away from each other as possiable!

If you want to completely hide the power cable in the engine bay and not use the fire wall to run through this way is a bit harder but alot better. Remove the plastic skin inside the drivers side guard and the kick panel next to the accelerator pedal. Then feed the power cable through the hole to the outer side of the battery into the guard, there is another cable running up inside the guard that you can cable tie the power cable too. Now at the kick panel there is a large gromet that the power cable can go through along with an existing cable then after that run it down the sill under the plastic covers to the boot.

The hole up a little higher and to the right of the accelerator pedal is more than big enough to fit a 4 gauge wire and more smaller wires through it without too much of a problem.
Just remember to keep the RCA's, speaker, remote wire, etc all away from the Power cable you need to run.
Just run them across the front footwell, under the carpet of course and take the door sills plastic panels off to run them fromthe front to the back.
You'll see what everyone on here means when you try to do it.
Have fun!

The smaller the number gauge the bigger the wire.
