speaker wire through doors ?

I want to run my front speakers off my amp. Yesterday I pulled the passenger door apart, and the kick panels and have no idea how to get the speaker wire through the hole in the car frame. I started threading the wire through the hole with all the other wires but it didnt come out anywhere. How the hell do i get the wire from the doors into the car? The stock speaker wire is bundled up with many other wires and stuck together and can not see where it goes.

Re: speaker wire through doors ?

one way is use a coat hanger carefully insert it so you dont poke it out the side, tape your new wires to it, and pull it back through, the other way is pull the rubber off at both ends (ther are a real pain to put back though) so you can have more control on feeding the wire through.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: speaker wire through doors ?

I can get the wire into the door no worries. The problem is getting the cable from the door into the car. I put a wire through and it seems to go nowhere. Ive put my arm up there but it is blocked off and you cant feel the wires.

Re: speaker wire through doors ?

What a pain in the butt job!!!! Firstly the speaker wire needs to be threaded through from the door side into the body, pull the carpet kick panel back on the drivers side and you will see a big-ass connector, this needs to come out of the recess as well as the plastic behind it, you should have access into that space now. Pull the rubber tubing off at both ends, pass the cable through the rubber tubing and into the body, thread as much cable as you can into the body and then it should appear in that recess where the connector was, if not you should be able to reach up and get the cable.

The other side is the same except the ECU needs to come out....

Hope this helps :-)
