The cable I ran through the car is about the thickness of my thumb so I had to drill a hole in the bulkhead. I removed the air filter assembly and drilled through beside the main loom ( after checking behind for any obstructions ) and ran it along underneath the door trim finishers on the passenger side of the car, to the boot area.
I fitted a distribution block in the jack storage area ( under the panel in front of the 3rd row seats ) that allows me 4 separate supplies.
One goes to the amplifier and one is for the ciggy lighter I installed in the panel below the centre rear seat. The ciggy lighter is earthed to one of the seat mounting bolts on the floor.
It was originally fitted with a 60 amp fuse but the amp kept blowing that, so it's been upgraded to 100 amp. The cabling is rated for that so all is well.


I think I have CDO. It's like OCD, but with ALL THE LETTERS IN THE RIGHT ORDER
