Unhappy 93 Bonne good location to run power wire?

I have a larger gauge power wire for my amp, and I can't figure out where the best place is to drill a hole though my firewall, please help quick! I am a visual learner, so Pictures or videos would be wonderful.

No need to drill a hole..there is a grommet around the steering column..you can bring it through there
ONLY IF there are absolutely no moving parts exposed n that spot

there isnt a good spot... I have mine ran threw my door jam which isnt ideal, i am about to reroute it in a couple days. Ur best bet will be to buy a grommet and drill a hole to match..

what kinda equipment r u running?

Dakota: true (ish) there is the boot that covers the steering linkage, but cutting into it will let dirt and moisture in..

I have 1 run of 00g wire, but I need power to this 4 ch. Amp so I'm just using 4 gauge. 00g is very hard to find, but I got it, 12 dollars a foot.
