    the RCA/Remote (on my rca's is all together) so they can be next to each other. However, do not have any speaker wires/RCA's running directly along the Power (not too sure on ground) wires. It will create alternator whine. I did that mistake and its very annoying.

    Alright ill keep that in mind. The only place my speaker wire to subs and power wire are together is where they come up through the carpet and into the amp. Ill have to come up with something creative to get around the power wire and driver side front speaker.

    Cross over/under a power wire at a 90 degree angle and
    MECP standards say at least 8 inches apart when running
    parallel to a power wire whether positive or ground.

    Well guys, I'm officially bumpin haha

    Subs are all wired up and they are doing their job. They don't shake the house down but plenty enough for my liking lol

    I go back to work tonight so ill be doing all the speakers next week. Hopefully it'll get me really crisp sound all together. Here's where the amp is I had my passenger seat out today. Wires are cleaned up more than whats in the pic. You can see where the two cuts in the carpet are on either side where I ran the wire up through.

    I know of people super gluing razor blades to the
    edges of their under seat amps.
    Sure makes a bloody mess but the would be
    thief learns a hard lesson.

    Head unit only has 1 RCA input and I need 3... subs take up the only one I'm using. I started hooking the speakers up to the amp and wanted to test them and now I know why they don't work..

    Gonna go look at some tomorrow.
