I recently installed the first system in my six. I was wondering if there are any places in the fire wall for a power wire. Right now mine is going threw my door jam, and as it seems to be okay, I don't like the idea of it.

Thanks,
Angel

yo....

look for rubber garments leading into the cab of the car. see if you can squeeze your power wire in next to it. after a long a tedious search i found a hole for mine in my jeep. if all else fails, you can drill a hole through the firewall, once drilled you should put a rubber garment in the hole to prevent the cutting of the insulation on the wire. which can cause your entire electrical system in your 6 to poop. hope this helps.

Thanks, I have seen a few holes in reaching distance, but the wires are always blocked by something. I am really trying not to have to drill any holes, but I'll keep looking. Thank you. :)

no problem ol buddy....

might take ya a while. might have to pull the carpet back under your dash a bit, could give you a better idea of where you can find a hole. hope you find one.

I was able to fit 8 awg through an existing gromet, just below the driver's side wiper motor. You will have to pull the carpet back, but it makes for a clean installation.

Thanks, that gives me a clue as to where to start looking. Other than that, I just really haven't had the time to work on it any since I put it in. Thank you. :)

There is a rubber garmet just behind and a little higher than your fuse box. I just poked through with a clothes hanger, attached the wire to the hanger and pulled. It worked really well, it was a short quick route to the battery and also down the side of the car to my amp. I've got a picture of it somewhere but I haven't been able to find it, I'll keep looking though.
