Default where to run cables?

from the cabin to the trunk, i was fine with the power cable and speaker cables but the rca cable heads are too big to fit thru the hole i found, so i was wondering where other ppl ran their cables?

For sure the opposite side of the power cable, are you able to drill out the hole a little bigger?

Try going under the back seat into the trunk, As mentioned before whatever you do make sure your Power wire and RCA cables are on opposite sides of the car. if not there will be major interferecne and a noise in the speakers

if you have the rca connector already on the wire, you will need a much bigger hole. If you have just the wire, and splice on the connect after you fish the line through, you will only need a small hole. Don't forget your gromets though! You don't need to cut your expensive cable.

under the rear seat and through the trunk. Plenty of big holes back there.
