Installing Amp, Deck, Speakers

I just bought an 01 Tacoma, and I love it. It's an awesome truck with many miles to go. Fits what I need to do perfectly.

I'm installing an Infinity amp, Infinity speakers and a new Pioneer deck. I'm pretty confident I will just pull the drivers seat out to mount the amp, and I have an idea of how to run the power line for the amp through a different hole in the fire wall than the speaker lines will go through.

However, I'm a little unsure about how to run the power/audio lines for the speakers from the amp through the little soft shell joint in the hinge of the door where the other wires go and out to the place where I will install the new speakers.

I'd appreciate any advice.

I don't know much about the stereo stuff except I installed the PA-15 interface & love it!

You bought a GREAT truck!

Run the speaker power wires from the amp to the back of the head unit (not connecting them, just to the location) and instead of having the speakers hooked up to the head unit splice the amp wires and speaker wires together there I have installed an amp in my 1st gen extra cab and this seems like the easiest way. I hope that makes sense.

I was running crossover wires out into the kick panel and on the 02 the rubber boots pull out pretty easily (and install pretty easily, but that my be due to the fact I have small hands). I removed the boot from the body side of the joint, it came right out when back in with about the same difficulty.

As far as running the wires to the amp run them down the kickpanel and down to the wire channel under the plastic plate. If you follow the wires and the kickouts of wire that are already there it should get you close to where your going to mount your amp.

I'm also in the slow process of upgrading the system, have the amp (not installed) and speakers (installed) and waiting to get paid so I can pick up the sub and H/U. Pics of what you do would be awesome, it'll help me out.
