    Ive had my sub-woofer wired in for a while now and everthing working fine. The only issue i have is the power cable comes out the top of the bonnet and down inbetween the door into my car. I did this due to the fact i couldn't find a way through from in the engine bay to the inside of my car (through by the dashboard or near footwell for example) anyone manage to find a neater/more hidden way of doing this? ive been know to bodge things like this but when it comes to my car i want it hidden and permanent.

    Any advice or ideas welcome!

    Cheers

    Hello take the glove totally out you should find all the lom comes into the car there, then just push your live through the same place, it should come out just under your fuse box under the bonnet. you will have to losen the screws off the fuse box too get at it abit fiddly! hope this helps

    As above...

    Take the glovebox out and you will find a nice grommet to run the cable through the bulkhead....
