Slick,
I used part of your DIY for installing power wires into my car. I forgot about removing
the plastic piece above the battery, as that would have been very convenient. I also
did not cut the carpet, but removed some bracket up to the top right, so I could pull
the carpet back to route the wires. However, in my impatience, I ended up tearing
the carpet or insulation , but at least it is not where it can be seen.

I had a heck of a time getting both power and ground wires under the trim
piece around the rear seatbelt. I have the sliding rear seats, so did not
want any wires exposed back there.

I bought a grommet from Napa, but can't find the exact model number.
I think it was for a 3/4" hole. We had a hard time getting that on the
firewall, but ended up lowering the computer to get our hands in there.

So, now I have power and ground cables in the rear by the spare tire, for
future radio amp installation.

have you ever ran new speakers without an amp? i'm using 100w polk audio component speakers now. the issue is that my head unit goes blank or ejects an mp3 cd on its own randomly. i think i might be drawing too much power from the stock head unit. any ideas why this happens?

I am running 260W Pioneers, nothing like this happens to my system. Yeah and not using an amp at the moment. Only for the sub which draws signal from the rear speakers via a LOC.
I usually listen near peak volume of head unit.

@revsson Im glad it worked out :) The hole in the carpet is more for convenience. It is possible, like u said, to move the carpet out of the way, but a small slit is just quicker. And since there is already carpet on top of it, it's hidden pretty well.

And yes, hiding the power wire is a pain. Lol


Good luck to everyone and I'm glad I could contribute.

Many thanks for this DIY. if it were not for this I would have done the old feed the power wire through the fender into the door trick. but this looks 100% pro everything is hidden. I am going to post photos of my whole system in a week or two when I find time to take some pictures.

Slick,
how did you attach the fuse holder? It looks like it's screwed to a hose clamp?
