Moving the steering wheel doesn't affect that wire much, but throw the shifter in 1 and the wire is almost bent in half. I made it loose and the wire I used to patch it back together is more flexible so it shouldn't do that any more.

Also planning on putting a single Kicker sub in the trunk. Can't decide between the ten, twelve, or fifteen inch sub.
i have two kicker tens in my monte worked out good for two 1 cuft boxes, wanted to be able to remove one if i go on a trip or want to take it to pick up something and need the space. and i got a pioneer stereo amp that each channel puts out enough to drive each seperate. what kind of music do you listen to?
