umm.. what? cut the rubber grommet? no, why would you do that, hey if you notice, beside the battery, there is a sorta white looking thing surrounding a buncha wires , im not going to take apicture, you shoudl be able to locate it, its a hole going into the fender with abuncha wires in a harness, anyways, unscrew the inside of the fender well and fish the wire through, and push it through a hole on the other side, that way your not cutting holes in any rubber pieces.. and messing things up, by far i think my way is the easiest, especially with bigger gauges like 0,2, or the not so big 4
Yours sounds good but could you please take a picture so all of us can see it
I have a P10 94' G20t & it took me awhile to look around and find a hole to run my 4 gauge wire and the "sorta white looking thing surrounding a buncha wires" that you were talking about..., I did not see? I ended up running my wire where GTA was talking about, the hole w/ a grommet cover which I just removed. The hole is on the driver side, in between the door hinge. You could either fish your wire or remove the plastic cover under the fender to make your wiring run much easier. That's how I did mine without drilling
there is a hole(almost invisible) pluged with a rubber plug, on the driver side between the petals. i cut a slit in the rubber piece and ran my wire through there. then i ran it under the floor trim along the driver side. my amp is under the driver side seat. it was in the trunk but it kept on getting really hot.
NM the guy before me must have had subs in teh trunk because teh wiring is all there except the battery wire. Only problem is that I spent 3 hours tonight getting it all wired under my carpet and all nicely done and the amp for some reason doesnt have power. I am hoping its just my ground is placed wrong or something.
are you talking about me? i had my amp in my trunk and under my driver seat. my sub is in the trunk. if you are not getting power to the amp then their should be a light on the amp that is not on. if it is not on then check the ground and check the lead(the wire that turns the amp on and off). if these are hooked up correctly then check the fuse, you may have blown it. if you blew the fuse it may be because you pinched a wire.
Make sure you don't have any exposed wirings that could cause short circuit. If you are talking about me having the subs in the rear, yeah..., and 3 amps. I was thinking of putting my Fosgate under the seat to reduce electrical noise to my fronts. The shorter the wirings, the less prone you have from electrical noises. Make sure also that your connections are tight and secure.
Yea my ground is a 4 gauge wire also, bolted onto the body under the carpet but it is on top of another what i thought metal conductor so ill have to check it out. i was worried that the rca jacks werent plugged into the deck the right way or something but thatwouldnt effect the amp getting power so imma work on the power situation first. l8r
