Default Where to mount my amp..

Well, here'* the situation.

I have an aftermarket head unit. Pioneer something or another, it has 3 outputs (front, rear, subs).

I have aftermarket 5.25'* (sony) in the front doors and aftermarket 6x9 on the rear deck (rockford)

I also have a Pioneer Premier 4 channel amp that matches the wattage of my speakers perfectly.

My problem is, I can't figure out where the heck to mount the amp. If I put it in the trunk, it'd be no big deal to wire it up to the rear 6x9'*, but how would I hook it to the 5.25'* in the front doors??

I could put it under one of the seats, but I can imagine that would get pretty messy/tangled.

(I also have a subwoofer amp in the trunk/have all of the power wires run back there already.)

So, let me see if I have this right.

I run 2 RCA cables to the trunk, one for the front, one for the rear.

I then run 4 sets of speaker wire from the amp, one for each speaker? I'm just curious as to how the heck I'm going to run it into my door..Any tips?

I'll take some pics of how I did mine. It'* not really that hard. The hardest part is gonna be removing the panels that are in the way(door, floor gaurd, etc). I'll post some pics in the morning to give u an idea. What kind of car is it going in?

No need for pics.

You will want to run RCA for your Amps to the trunk
Run speaker wires to the trunk and go from there !

One RCA cord per channel, right?

As in, one cord for the rear, one cord for the front.

Regarding the speaker wire..I guess I'll have to go out when it stops snowing and figure out which panels/stuff I'll have to remove.
