    I am having a problem not being able to route speaker wires through the factory door accordian cover. What wires do I tie into for the speakers tha pass through the accordian and is there a crossover dowstream of the kick panel on the front speakers?

    If you haev been able to wire direct please tell me how you did it.

    I had a factory 6 disk player with non JBL system if that matters. 2010 DC

    The only "crossover" is a cap on the tweeter itself.

    However... I was able to fit two runs of jacketed pairs of 12AWG (overkill) wire to my speakers through the door grommet accordion. I used a semi rigid piece of wire (a landscaping flag) that I bent one end into a loop (to keep the end from poking shit) and worked it through to the door. I then securely taped my speaker wires to the flag and pulled it through from the door. You have to two hand it, one pulling, the other massaging the grommet but there is room for your wires I'm sure.

    ^^^I did the same except I used a single conductor of no.12 house wire and left the insulation on it.

    Are you just replacing speakers? Or are you going to add an amp to power them? If you are just adding speakers, get the adapters that will connect the aftermarket speaker to the toyota harness. No need to run wires if you are leaving everything else stock.

    I know that didn't answer your question, but I would hate to see you do more work than needed. If you really want the colors, PM me. I have them lying around here somewhere.

    JL HD 900/5 amp so thats why I want new wires. I will try to runthe wires again and see if I have better luck. My silly wires are jeacketed and then twisted and wrapped in another cover. I guess if I run the wires one at a time (4 total) and remove the outter jacket they may fit... its not thick wire but with the clear over jacket its almost as thick as 4G power wire lol.

    Try taping the second wire about 2 feet or so down on the first wire. Then, feed the single wire use a long zip tie. Once you have the first wire through, just keep pulling and working the wire. It will come.

    Or use a "fish tape" or pull string, then attach your wires to that, and pull them thru. A coat hanger or other stiff light guage wire works great as a fish tape.

    Pulling something smaller thru the opening first is easier than trying to get all of the wires thru.
