To get the battery cable into the car, from the engine compartment. There is a rubber gasket on the driver side on the firewall. Either cut a hole in it, or pop the edge of the gasket out of the hole to pass the cable through. Then pas the cable through the lower trim pieces on the left side under the steering wheel. Then pop up the plastic trim pieces on the floor that are on the floor right up against the door, pop the ones in the front and the back up, and pass the cable under there, and put the trim back on. Then from there some how get it into the truck, it depends on the car. I have never done it on a 95. Its really a simple job, you should be able to read this then figure it out on your own.

EDIT: Oh and for the RCA and remote on wire, you take it from behind the dash to the left side. And have it go the same way on the left side, there should be more then enough room.

Really? I have never noticed a problem with that. RCAs are shielded, but not heavily. Only RCAs I have had run with my power cables have been for bass, so maybe you can't hear the interference with bass.

yea, you can go inside, probably the best idea, or you can do what i did, and go under your car, i went down some box frame, lol but on a sedan probably best bet is to go inside like t00 said.

I have 2 sets of Stinger RCA's running along with my power wire the RCA's are for the subs and the in cab speakers and there is no problem with the signal. I think i paid 25 bucks for a 12 feet of 4's and 12 feet of 2's off ebay. About the only thing i can say that would change whats said is the fact that the power wire is a recharge for the battery in the trunk.

But its better having the power wire run inside the car because running it under the car youre playing with nature a lot more and the power wire will eventually start to break and..... well..... exposed wire on a steel...... yeeeeeah..... no fun there

yeah run it under the carpet on the side of the car next to the door sill and then under the back seat to the side of the trunk that you want to mount everything on. I second marbro on the wires outside = bad idea

Just make sure you run a fuse off of battery. I try and run it withen 6" of battery. That fuse is for incase something shorts between battery and amp the fuse goes and doesnt catche anything on fire.

Had kid that was going to be in my shop (luckly he went to another) tell me that he caught his neon on fire. Why? Dumbbutt didnt run wire thru firewall but ran it between fender and door jam and then in car. Plus he didnt put fuse off of battery. Well opeing and closeing door nicked insulation and it shorted out. Since he didnt fuse it at bateery the wire heated up and caught car on fire.
