Hey everyone, where do you run your amp wire through the firewall? I hate mine going through the door seal so i want to put it actually through the fire wall. Ideas are appreciated.

Some berettas have a hole near the brake pedal, but not all of them. If not then you gotta drill a hole.

Mine comes out around the steering rack, but I regret it.  I want to see if theres a way I can run it up through where my hood latch cable runs.  Seems to be ample room there.  dunno if it would interfere with the kicker speaker tho.

If you have to drill a hole in your firewall, I would suggest you drill as closely to the driver's side edge as you safely can and rubber grommet the hole. This way you will be as close as possible to the rocker trim so you can neatly run your cable under the trim/carpet all the way to the trunk. This is what I have done in the past and it makes the wires absolutely invisible. GL in your decision. :D

Mine goes through the same hole that a bunch of factory wires goes through.  This bundle of wires is a few inches below the master cylinder.  I pushed the factory gromet out, ran my new wires through the hole then installed a new gromet over all the wires.

Maybe i'll look again for that hole.  I dunno how much room I had there before, since my friend was helping me.  

When I tear my interior apart again I'll look into it.  I need to ditch my old hole and fast cause its starting look not soo fun down there.  

Maybe I'll do it this summer.

Be careful where you drill, you don't need the drill bit going through anything important. A few inches to the left of where the brake pedal goes into the firewall is a great spot. Easy to get a drill up in there and runs through into the engine bay in a very nice spot.

cant find the hole? lol....



but yea, be carefull of where you do it, and wherever you do it, make sure you put some stuff around it, this should prevent any water from getting into there.


the z26 is on the road!

Don't just put "stuff" around it. Do it right and use one of these:

theres some wiring/a cable dont know which one in the far driver side corner, about an inch away to the left from that you can easily fit 0 gauge wire. i'd take a pic of mine but i has no camera.

I don't know how well the picture shows, i drilled a hole right next to the hood release cable, absolutely invisible on the inside. Just be careful because there are wires in this area, check and double check where you will be drilling
