    Hiding wires? (Amp--> speakers)

    Ok well I have all my ****, I plan to wire my amp and place it and ground it under my passenger seat.

    How would I hide the wires? I thought cutting a hole in the mat but then it would be so hard to move them around. And how do you hide tweeter wires? If I'm flush mounting

    Harder said then done. My carpet ends towards where I have to send the power wire through the firewall, wires will show. And tweeters flush mounting? I don't see how that's possible?

    Re: Hiding wires? (Amp--> speakers)

    you have to run the wires thru the door boots like the stock wires or tap into the stock wires behind the deck and in the door it's self. as far as the power wires try to hind or cover them as best as you can .out of all the cars and trucks i've done over the years i've never seen it be that big of an issue .pics will help tho.

    Is it okay to cut a hole in the carpet under the seat then run them under?

    These things? http://www.wakemakers.com/media/cata..._connector.jpg how's that even work lol.

    And another question, the inline fuse for the amp
    Near the battery, there's nowhere on the firewall to install it with screws, can it just be loose in there or does it gotta be in place.

    the connector is right , the inline fuse needs to be with in 18 " of the battery ,just zip tie it if you have to
