Exclamation ***ok Much Needed Response***

ive read thru the threads and so far ive got these bits of info

1. run the power for amp thru the fire wall behind the washer fluid reservoir or thru the rubber approx. 6 inches away from the washer fluid route.

2. run the remote line off of an ignition controlled 12v. line like the rear "cigarette lighter" plug.

so now i have power to my amp and a switch (ignition) what do i do next?!?!? (as far as speakers go)

Actually the Rubber Grommet is on the driver side, the Washer fluid is on the Pass side.

The pass side is shorter but you have to drill through the firewall
the driver side is longer, but no drilling.

But yeah we have to know what you want to do in order to give you advice on it.

Start with what kind of speakers you have, where you plan on placing them, size, specs etc. Then detail what amp you have, if possible take a photo or two and try to explain what you're hoping to do where, and you should get some good advice.
