i have a 93 ETC and im in the process of installing an audibahn amp. ive looked through 40 pages and i didnt find what im looking for. :annoyed:

Here are the Question:

How do i get through the firewall to get to the battery???

Is there a certain way i should put the wiring on??? like an order, positive, remote, and ground?

i would appreciate if someone will help me tonight. im getting the amp tommorow.

Before you start you should disconnect the negative terminal on the battery to prevent shock. If there are no empty holes in the firewall you'll need to use a drill with steel bits. You might need to get a pretty big bit, because you may have to use very large wire depending on the power rating of your amp. (Mine is 1kw RMS and uses 8 gauge cable.)

No specific order is necessary for wiring it in, just make sure there's no power in the lines before you start soldering.

I've attached a diagram so you can see how it would look.

so your saying theres a rubber grommet on the left side driver, on the eldo? that would seem like an alright place. and when you mean solder, you mean the subs right?

My car '97 STS there is a hole on the drive side for the throttle cable I believe. I ran 2/0 through the hole.

ground from in the trunk 3 ft or less make sure you have a ground to mount to and your remote wire goes from the cars factory antenna so the amps go off when the car is off. here the link for the ground mount . amps kits usually have them
