    Hiding wires...

    Ok, im going to be wiring up my Sub soon, and was just wondering how easy is it to hide the wires down the side of the car?

    There is that big long plastic coving type thing going down the side of the car, Im guessing i can hide the wires behind that?

    Will i need to remove anything like the seats to get at it?

    Yes to do it properly the seat and the seat belt retaining bolt at the bottom, you can just tuck it up under the side trim to but the first way is preferred IMO

    It's on popper clips mate, the only place I know its screwed down to is near towards the front of the trim, under the dash, held on by a T20 torx bit I think

    I decided to stick my power cable, Rcas, speaker wires etc under the carpet today

    Took the seats out to do it ( Was expecting to find some money, but all I got was 3p ) and then ran it under the carpet, also managed to extract about 5m worth of coaxial cable and about 5m of 8 gauge wire too
