Amplifier battery wire question!?!?

Probably hooking up an amp and a sub soon. Anyone know of a good place to run the batter cable for the amp through the firewall ? Any info to save me time would be great!!

easiest for a rookie would be the spot on the drivers side grommit. toyota put a spot there for such things, you just have to trim off the nipple.

There's a rubber piece on the driver's side that you can use. You have to cut the nipple off the end though so seal it with some silicone when you're done passing your wire. It's part of a larger rubber gasket and the wire should come out right under the driver's dash.
