I think if you check under your coolant bottle, and you have that grommet there, you should ask your installer to use it if possible. I mean, the installer is the one who has to actually DO the work, and maybe he would appriciate a the tip if it make his install easier.

What sealed the deal for me using that side was that the battery is already right there, and I wanted the amp power separated from the RCAs to the amp. So, amp power and remote turn on wire on the passenger side, and RCAs on the drivers side.
Hopefully it works for you whichever way you chose, and you like your new audio gear.

This is an old pic I had of my 99 yukon engine bay.
I know the coolant bottle is still attached, but look anyway, and IMAGINE its gone.

if you remove those 2 bolts, and see a black wire, follow it to the rubbery grommet on the firewall. Make a little slit in it with a knife, and you should be able to pass your ampwire thru to the passenger floor area, then into the kick panl and back. Hope that helps.

The blue wire is sposta represent the fused power wire.

I removed my coolant tank looking for the grommet on my 99 Tahoe 4 door 4x4. Here's what I found:



Ok. so where do I take the power wire to? (it's a 4 gauge wire)

awesome., you have the grommet.

ok take the wire and run it to the dist block by the radiator cap(or the battery itself). put a fuse inline to protect your investment.

If the grommet that you're speaking of is the one that the wire is going through, my 4 gauge wire won't fit in there. My wire is too big to fit in there. Looks like I'm going to have to drill.

But the grommet will work for the fog lights and the hood pin switch (remote start).

man, I didnt think of that. I ran 8 ga thru there.
umm yeah, if you drill thru that general area near the grommet, the cool part is that it dump right onto the floor in the passesger seat area. then run it thru the kick panel and your good to go.
