    4 channel amp speaker wiring

    Hello all,
    I have a 2002 chevy tahoe and am installing a 4 channel amp. I will use the front 2 channels of the amp to drive the component speakers in the front door, and the coaxial speakers in the rear doors. I will brigde the rear two channels to drive an 8" audiobahn sub in a qlogic custom enclosure that fits inside the forward center console out of sight. I have wired a few amps before, but am somewhat confused on how to find the factory speaker wires where they come out of the doors, or identify them. I am mounting the amp under the rear seat, and would like to run the speaker wires directly to the speakers, but not sure how to get the wires into the doors. If anyone could help me with this issue, I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks for the help.
    John

    This can be tricky. The only method I have found to run the speaker wires along the original route is good old fashioned elbow grease. Have to remove some panels and start feeding wires, its a tedious proccess but its satisfying in the end.
