Can someone please break me in?

i dont really know how to run wiring for speakers around the car while keeping it hidden which i imagine will take some fanangling and figuring out.

any advise? i mainly need to know the best way to run it all. any little corners, paths to take. Ive got an EL

Cheers

Depends on what you are doing.

Boot install i just connected everything up to the head. Then i took those foot things in the doors off and run the cables under that. when it came to the back seats i run it under the back seat into the boot.

As for doors run then cable through the door and then through the rubber thing for the door locks and power windows.

Keep looking for way ford have hidden their wires and do the same. Its easy.

well RCAs and power cables can be hidden under the carpet if u can be bothered removing the seats. but since u dont want to do that u can just remove the plastic covers under each door that holds the carpet down and run it under neath that and then just cover it up again. with the wires to ur speakers. if u amp is in the boot well just run some wires up to them.....i dont think ur going to look into ur boot much unless ur having a big install. in that case u can tape them or something onto the underside of the parcel. the door speakers.....what stomper said.

with the parcel shelfs u cant really hide them unless u are willing to cover them up with something or stick them to the underside of the parcel shelf where noone can see them.

good luck with it

ive got a bit of a plan. stock looking system with a decent head unit. the sub is in the boot facing the seats under the shelf and can easily be removed. pop in the cig lighter and Doof Doof, the sub comes to life.

now all i need is time and money

Good luck with it all mate - but the best way to do instals is to remove the rear seat base and the plastic covers and kick panels along the sides of the doors - this makes it easier to hide all the messy spaghetti wires!

also a little helpful hint i find great is get some black or whatever colour leccy tape and tape the remote with rcas. do a small tape every 17- 20 cms along. The rcas and remote are going the exact same place so i find that easier

You shouldnt run the Remote wires with the RCAs. You will get interference. Remote/Trigger wires should run along with your power cable.

Yeh thats what i thought as well...but after 6 or 7 installs it appears in my experiences i have not had any interferences. I dont think that the remote carries enough power to cause any problems.

cheers

its not such a big drama running the rca with the remote caus the remote is pritty clean power stright from the deck and its only to tell the amp to turn on. but power cable is dirty gets all the s**t from the alternater so unless u like the squeel i wouldnt do it. and wires in the falcons are easy kick trims the feet plate at the doors and back seat pull the carpet clips up and u can run what ever u want where ever u want hardest part is power through the fire wall can be a pain. have fun
