02 Deville Subwoofer installation
I had my sub setup in my '98 Catera, but now that I've traded in for an '02 Deville, I'm pretty happy with the trade (even if I didn't get jack for that Catera).
But with the Deville the battery is in the back seat and I'm not sure how to wire my power to the back with there being no way to get through there. The radio part shouldn't be too hard, I have the dash kit and GMOS-O6 that's said to be backwards compatible for an 02 Deville, and wiring my remote and RCAs should be a little easier and cleaner looking than the Catera, but my problem is how I'm to get my power through to the trunk.
I'm not sure if anyone has ever done this, I'd think somebody here has, and I'm just curious how I can make this as clean as possible without moving or tearing out a bunch of pieces. I realize it'll take a while, but I have time.
Pictures or diagrams of any such sort are greatly appreciated, or any other advice is more than appreciated.

Running a cable from the trunk to the battery is very easy. The only thing in the way is the trunk lining material at the front if the trunk. Cut a small hole and pass the wire through. I'd remove it first (it's held in place with plastic rivets) and you'll see the plastic "tray" containing various modules. Run the cable around that.
