i was just curious if it mattered how far the cross overs were from the components. So could the cross overs be in the trunk and the components be in the front door?

big negative

does not matter, just a bigger pain in the arse to run two sets of wires thru the doors and vehicle. i usually try to stuff the crossovers under the dash somewhere. and if possible do the tweets on the A pillar, i try to avoid going into the doors at all costs tbh :p:

unless you have to that is :)

running wire thru the door boots is a pita.

As req said; doesn't matter. All it changes is how much wire you have run through the vehicle.

X a billion. Especially if you have piece o' chit molex plugs on the door and the freakin door jam as my piece o' crap does:)

I found it a bit easier if you open the door the whole way...work from in the door out and tape the wire to the end of a coat hanger. You will cuss and if you don't, this process will. About midway through you will wish you collected stamps. Very rewarding once completed.

I didn't have a problem with it :)

Just pushed the wire through the boot, came out the other side ;)

Now getting the wire through the dash was a whole 'nother story, hehe...

Exactly what I had to do, except I had to drill the holes in the stupid molex connectors. There is one on the door and one on the door jam. It's cool that if I ever decided to take the door off I could just unplug all the electrical connections at once I guess. But how often is that going to be ..:)
