.....i dont know if you shoudl be installing a sub and amp if you dont know where the firewall is...

but anyways, the firewall is the metal barrier in between the cabin of the car and the engine compartment. If you look in the drivers foorwell... just keep going forward past the pedals, thats the firewall..

you will probably have to drill to get in there. be careful though, you dont wanna drill into anything else...

Look behing the pedals towards the left, see if theres a foam pat cutout. There's often a pre-drilled hole behind a foam pad you just gotta pull off

If not, check the other side of the metal before you drill, nothing more fun than a hole in your master cylinder

DO NOT CONNECT THE AMP GROUND TO THE BATTERY!!!!!

Get your boom-boom installed by a pro. No offense, but I can tell from your posts that you have no idea of what your getting into.

The amp groundwire isn't even long enough to connect to the battery even if you wanted to. You would have to have a custom length cable for that but that is still a no-no The only wire you want to connect to the battery is the amp power cable, which is red. Ground wire is a brownish color, remote wire is blue.

well, if your still willing to trythe install yourself, which i really would not advise doing unless you know your stuff..there is a hole in the firewall on the passengar side op top of there the AC drains. i ran my power cable through here about 8 months ago and no problems. just be sure to use a rubber grommet and some silicone. also make sure that you put the ac drain pipe back in place!

Make sure you get good wiring too, a kid in Auto-Mechanics didn't and blew out all the wiring in his sound system, white smoke everwhere !

i dont kow what is so funny about this thread? i ask for where is the firewall, not what. i have installed an amp and sub in my previous car, a civic. i just dont know where i should run the power cable thru. some cars have the firewall opening on the passenger's side, some on the driver's side. i dont wanna drill my own hole and just use the pre-drilled hole. i just dont know where it is because i never searched for it. thanks for all of u that actually posted useful replies. btw, the ground wire of the amp should be connected to an unpainted metallic surface in the trunk and should be no longer than 1 foot.

It's funny because you ask where the firewall is...the firewall is the entire barrier between the engine bay and cabin.

It's funny because you reference running a ground wire back to the battery, yet now you claim otherwise...

It's funny because it seems you are attempting an install that given your display of technical knowledge, may be over your head.

You must also remember that all of us on this board are die hard car nuts and think it's funny that somebody doesn't know what the firewall is...

And I wouldn't have mentioned that you previously had a civic, these guys are gonna bash on you for that too

lol give this guy a break. anyways looks like you got a auto so the firewall hole should be on top of the dummy pedal. your going to have to remove the panel under the steering to actually see it. there is to screws on the right side and left side of the panel. its not really hard to take off if you take your time. but yea once you take off the panel there should be a rubber thing with wires going thru it. just to use a wire hanger to get the wire thru the engine. if your using a stock headunit you should wire the on/off wire to the ACC fuse. just wrap it aroound on one of the pin on the fuse and stick it back in. for the ground you should ground it in the trunk. if you take off the cover of the spare wire cover there will be a ground there so just use that.
BTW remember to remove the neg from the battery before you hook up the 12v wire. and make sure you got the radio code
