would be rough.


this is a creative way of going about it. don't see the real gains besides the fact that some people arent conformable tearing out seats and taking off seats and bolts and stuff, so i can see why this would be nice.

oh and if your interested in a real nice amp, you could run this single 6 channel amp for your car, run your rears and fronts off the 4 channels than bridge the last 2 for a sub.

Good idea for a quick and simple install, but IMO I dont know why people spend the time and money on a system and then half-*** the wiring. I will say it is good for someone who wants to be able to quickly remove their system without having to tear the car back apart.

agreed here, i would be worried about ruining a water tight seal and allowing water into the foot wells.

I ran mine similar to this but I was able to run the wire completely hidden next to the rear seat under the panel there and then behind the seat instead rather than in front of it where it folds down. In and out with a system in like fifteen minutes.

why was it run where the fender channel is? wouldnt the fuse get wet, or get jammed by the hood shock support?
when i ran my wiring i did everything right, took out the back seat and all, there isnt much to it :p
