Ok I was looking in my car today trying to figure out the bast way to route cables from my head unit to the boot for my sub. I want all the wires hidden as much as possible. Eventually I thought I'll ask on here.. so how have you guys done it?

one i would say is its probably best to run like the rac cable down one side and the 12v+ and the remote wire down the other as theres not a great deal of space under the sills :beer:

im running power cable down passenger side RCA's and remotes under center console and speaker cables down the drivers side make sure you get the right size cabling for what you are running as ive seen some pretty bad damage caused to cars from using wrong size cable's and amke sure you use gromits on any holes you feed cables through

you need to keep power cable anyway from speaker cables or you will get a buzz in your speakers

hope this is of some help
