Ok so bought my the subs and amp that i want and there her i have all the wiring and everything. I've been hooking up systems a lot bigger and smaller than this for a couple years. I'm running a small setup because i need the space in the back, i got a 10 inch ma audio sub and rockford fost gate amp at 2 ohms and 1200 RMS.

But i cant find a place to run my 0 gauge wire? any ideas or where have you ran yours?

with wire that big would there's probably no grommet in the firewall big enough for it, so you'll have to drill a hole in the firewall, Ive drilled 100's of holes in firewalls just double and triple check your spot before you drill. what deck are you running them off of?

Pull the carpet back under the dash on the pas. side. Drill next to the black thing that goes through. Check both sided GOOD first. Its kinda a tight fit.

You said you've installed lots of systems before. Where did you run the wire in those autos? Fish it under the carpet, under trim panels, anywhere that it'll be hidden.

LOL. You don't have to install a single system to know that under the carpet or the trim panels are the only options.

cealing (SP?) works also thats where i put most of mine. that way the wires don't get stepped on and there is no lumps in the carpet. this is where i just put mine. i had time to day to do it. i put my amp in between the rear speakers. it was easier to work my way under there then under the floor.
