run your power wire from the battery to the trunk on the right side of the car make you use atleast 8 gauge wire for power with a 40 amp inline fuse and as for rca'* and remote turn on run those from the head unit down the left side of the car

normally you can slip the wires in to the trunk without taking off the back seat

Would it be logical to run the rca cables above the door trim? That way you don't have to run wires under the steering column. It would be just as easy to run them up the a-pillar.
