Question Going through the firewall

Did you guys need to drill a hole through the firewall when you installed your amps, or is there one I'm not seeing I could use?

I don't think my little 18v drill can handle that.

I'll take a look. I''m pretty sure I had glanced at that hole in particular but it had a hard, plastic cap on the engine's side. I'm also using a low-gauge wire, so it may be tricky. I'll definitely take a look, though!

Good news, I got it! I'm now running a small amp under my passenger seat to power my Audiophile amp. Nice little sound that takes up no room at all in my cab. I'm quite happy with the result. Thanks, guys!
