Default Running amp power wire

I am going to install a new amplified sub in the rear cargo area against the back seats. I'm not sure of the best place to run the power supply cable through the firewall. Any suggestions? Easist place prefered, but I want to do it right though too. I'd like NOT to have to take too much of my dash apart.

I Ran Mine Behind/under The Coolant Bottle. You'll See A Grommet There & Just Remove The Kick Panel & Run It. Battery Is On That Side Anyway So It Will Save Some Wire & Time Hiding It.

find the main grommet in the firewall and put a little slice in it and push the wire through. Just be careful of the harness, its really expensive.

I just tried this a few minutes ago. The grommet behind the coolant recovery tank is the best. It was super easy and THANKS FOR THE HELP!!!!!

Sweet! I'll be installing my subwoofer soon, and had occasionally been rooting around inside and out for an existing hole. For some reason I found myself eyeing that coolant bottle several times and wondering. Now I know! Thanks!

I don't know what year model you are talking about, and i don't know if there is any differance, but on the drivers side, fuse panel under the hood, there is an ACC spot you can put the amp wire right on it.. the battery runs right too it... real easy - also don't know about year model diff.. but my 99 had a second battery tray on the drivers side real easy install of 2nd batt..

Dig that. Since i ran 0 gauge hot wire i wanted to run that large of a wire
seperate from everything else. That left me running the rest of the spaghetti
under the driver's side with the rest of the vehicle harness but it saved me at least 5 feet in 0 gauge hot wire. That acc terminal under the hood is cool but ain't wanna piss any components off crankin the noise. 99 Tahoe. I have the
2nd battery tray also. Like the night view of the Yuk.
