Hello newbie here (and question about e36 amp installation)

Hi everyone,

I've just purchased a neat and tidy '92 318i which obviously isn't the flashest thing on the road but I love it and can't believe it's a K reg!

Sorry if this belongs in the audio section but wasn't sure where best to post as it's only the interior itself I need advice on.

What I'd like to know is, what's the best way to feed the power, RCA and remote cables through the car? down the sides with the door, or through the middle? I don't want to randomly rip off panels if there's a preferred method. Does anyone have examples of a standard e36 audio setup as an upgrade from stock.

Thanks very much :-)

well this does belong in the audio section however ill leave it here for now. the best way i found was run your RCA down the side of the car (doesnt matter what side, its your decision) the power you get from the batter in the back already so there is no need to run a wire from the front. remote you can run with the RCA its pretty simple all parts are removeable and replaceable. since your a 4 door once you get to the back remove the seats and you can figure out a way to get the wires back to the trunk, if you find no suitable place you can always drill a hole to feed the wires through. just remember to put some sort of rubber gromet in the hole you drilled so that it doesnt cut into the wires over time, or you can also tape the wires with a durable tape so it wont cut in.
