    How to run power wire when sealing trunk.

    How did you guys run your power wire when you seal off the trunk from the cabin? Only way I can think of is setting the box on top of the wire, but I don't really like this idea. We're sealing two SA-15's off in the trunk of a Passat and it's a tight fit so I'm tying to get this all figured out before hand.

    Re: How to run power wire when sealing trunk.

    run it by the side of the box...when you make the trim panels to seal it off cut a spot for the wires. Than seal around it with expanding foam of whatever else you were going to use

    Or run them under the car and up through a hole in the trunk

    Re: How to run power wire when sealing trunk.

    I used fiberglass to create a seal, so I just took fg over and around the split loom with all my wire that went low. The wires that went high have foam stuffed in the holes.

    Re: How to run power wire when sealing trunk.

    I put the wires under the box and filled the gap with expanding foam (2 runs of positive and negative under the box). On the sides and top I used silicon. It works perfect actually and I love how my sealed trunk sounds. Go ported through the rear deck too!

    Re: How to run power wire when sealing trunk.

    Agreed on the benefits of sealing off the trunk. It eliminates the phase interference that plagues all trunk boxes.
