I just cut a slit in my steering column boot and ran my power wire through there. Be sure you secure the wire away from the steering column it's self, because mine would try to catch on the column and wrap around it. Just secure it with a few zip ties and you'll be good!

I didn't use a groment (should have) but i cut a little slit in the rubber and ran mine throught the boot that the steering column goes through.

More specifically below the column penetration and off to the side so there would be no interference with steering.

----------

Wikdity i guess great minds . . . .

Any insight is greatly appreciated
Why so many different sized speakers?
I guess you could put the m anywhere they'll fit.

Have you considered fiberglassing the doors?

Yeah, with those different sizes speakers, and the quantity of them in a single cab, fiberglass would work well.

Im afraid i might have a door leak from the top seal, i was thinking of taking my cup holder off and put the tweeters behind my shifter, 6.5" in door 8s runnin overhead, 10s between seat and amps behind seat
What if i fiber glassed the 6.5s,8s,and tweeters into the door , would the tens be alright between my bucket seats, where that current box is

What I'm really asking here, is what are your goals?
Just an assload of noise from many speakers?
You will in all reality get much better results from eliminating some of those speakers. Think a simple system to start.
If you can get some good tweeters to match your mids, then running those in the doors would do well. Toss the tens in the back and amp everything.
Trying to run different sized subwoofers doesn't generally produce great results. Also running speakers in random various locations also doesn't really give you great results.
If you want it to look awesome and don't care about the sound, then triple up on all your speakers and fiberglass them all over the place (roof, floor, doors, steering wheel, etc).
