Default Power Cable Length

What length of power cable would be required to run from battery to the trunk?

depends where you run it...i ran mine down the driver side and 20 ft was good enough...i wish i woulda had about 1-2 more feet though

im sure 16-18 would work for the passenger side

Now... Where if I tried to run it down the passenger side would it come through the firewall??? Anyone have any pics too, that'd sure help.

Thanks again for the input.

i hope harofreak00 doesnt mind me posting his pic...


id say your better off running it down the passenger side. removing the glovebox to access the firewall helps a bit...

Hmmmm, is there precut hole on the passenger side to come through? I just installed a system in a friend'* Civic ES, and there was actually a precut plug in both the firewall, AND the carpet, I was so amazed, it was the easiest thing to do ever.

Would there happen to be any pics of where people have chosen to come through on the passenger side? (Like close-up of the hole?)

Thanks!
