Amp Cable Route

Hi guys, what is the best place to route the amp power cable through the bulk head before i start stripping bits away to get to the bulk head. I have the m3 e36 coupe and there is no room to even see LOL

Yes i know this should be in the audio forum but this is car specific as the advice needs to be for a E36

thanks

I guess you dont need me anymore Furious. :lol:

No he's right, and as far as grounding, keep the main ground wire as short as possible. Darn 3-series and their easy running of stereo wires...

drivers side? i couldnt figure out how to do it throught that side so i did it through the passenger side, just took off the glove box thing and theres enough space to put the wires through to the stereo
