    Firewall entrance?

    Ok so I've just bought the stuff to put in an amp and sub, but I've seen to have hit a road block. I'm in to doing it myself, but I can't seem to find a spot on the firewall to run the amp power wire. I've seen the plug style on the drivers side, is there another one any where else that is like the standard rubber style? I'm sure I'm not the only one to ask this question. Help somebody!!! Haha
    Oh yeah...on a 2000 T/A

    When I had my two 12 subs the shop that did my run it out threw my drivers side firewall, and zip tied the wires up where they run it over the motor. But now it might be a little different as this was the 97 firebird instead of the ws6. I couldn't tell you if they did any cutting or not since it's been so long.

    Yea the guys at freemans did my system I guess what they did was drill a hole in the firewall and put a rubber pieace in there. Because when my brother totaled it, I went to pull the system out of it. It looked like they run it threw above the pedals and behind the dash.
