Installing subwoofers???

hey, its spring, time to bust out the speakers, but the problem is that I just bought my prelude so I don't have a clue where to route the wires through to the inside then to the trunk. any suggestions would be awesome. thanks in advance.

Run Power Wire through the driver side firewall. Under carpet near side step. Pull the power wire out of rear quarter panel under back sit.

Run RCA's on passenger side under back sit to rear passenger panel. Under Carpet and pull it out under the passenger side front dash. Then run it to back of radio.

hey one thing you failed to mention as far as running it thru the firewall....GROMETS are your best friend when doin this...you dont wanna hafta go buy new power wire cus it got shaffed while pulling it thru... but its smart to keep the rca's away from that power wire... its a must if you dont want road noise.... pretty much Rory told ya the main things iam just being a smartass by over doing what he said lol

i checked the passenger side and found that it is really crammed in there, and tried looking for this location on the fire wall but have no luck, is it the location behind this big wire harness( i'm guessing it is the main wire harness) that is located right behind the ECU or is it somewhere else...

i would recommend going thru the rubber grommet in the passenger fender, under the fusebox, here:


fish it down there with a coat hanger/wire and some string, then feed it thru another rubber grommet up in the pass side footwell, behind the kick-panel, here:


MAKE SURE YOU SEAL THIS HOLE UP GOOD, BECAUSE I'VE HAD 2 FLOODS INSIDE MY CAR DUE TO THIS OVERSIGHT!!!!!


then under the side sills, under the rear seats, into the trunk

Thanks, I got the woofers to work, also got a new deck sounds ok- planning on buying a new speaker system though, just not good enough if you know what mean.
