    Anyone have tips for spots to run the RCAs and Power/Ground for an amp on a 2001 Xtra cab? Anyone put the amp under the seat? Did you run the power under the truck then up into the cab, or through the firewall and hide it under panels? Just looking for tips.. thanks!

    In my 97 I had the amp under the passenger side seat. Power was thru the firewall and under the carpet to the amp. Hope this helps.

    amp under drivers seat. ran the rca's through the center console area and then under seat to connections. ran the ground through grommet in floor to frame. ran power and lead under sill plate, I think it's called.

    Have second amp attached to backside of box with wiring run similar. Used to have an amp in the passengers side storage compartment with wiring run in a similar fashion as above.
