Default Where to run power wire for sub

Just wondering, where should I go through the firewall exactly to run an 8 gauge power wire for subwoofer? Got the car apart this second and would like to do it, but can't seem to figure it out. I'd like to keep it on the passenger side, if possible.

Thanks

I just ran them under the floor trim piece all the way to the trunk.

Even posting a link here, and this forum won't allow it. LOL.

No worries Mike.

Just take pictures when you do yours, post it here, we'll turn it into a Techinfo article with credit due to you.

I'll take a picture sometime this week as it'* back together, basically that square piece in the engine bay next to the main harness is where you have to drill through dead center, you are puncturing the firewall about a quarter inch behind it rather easily and it'* all dead space in there, it'll come in behind the air bag area but don't worry won't damage anything (just don't use a stupidly long bit, obviously). I had to scoot the wire through a few times to grab it with needlenose from behind the glovebox (which I removed) and I was all set.
