Stereo Frustration

Post by Crabnife » Sun May 03, 2009 6:42 pm

Rainy Sunday. Trying to hook up my stereo. 2 12s an a 1000 watt amp.

Trying to get my power wire through the firewall without drilling holes.

Just doing a getto setup until I get 0 gauge wire.

Any advice would be great.

Fill in your sig with your van info...year, engine, tranny etc.

What year is your van? On my 98, I had used an existing hole with a rubber boot and cable running through to put a few wires in. After a while, you run enough wires back and forth, you will just need to drill a hole and put a rubber grommet in it. Then silicone it up.
