    The amp wire comes through the glove box and across the passenger side to the trunk. The rest of the wiring runs through the center console under the carpet to the trunk.
    When you say that you ran it through the CC, under the carpet, then through the trunk, how did you get it from the end of the carpet to the trunk?

    Currently, in my system, the vga and usb run from the HU through the CC, under the carpet, up the side of the seat (rear passenger), through the gap between the leather and the plastic panel, through the area where the seat folds down, and under the mat in the trunk, ending in the area with your mdf enclosure.

    The audio runs from the HU, through the glovebox, and through the passenger side (inside the step) then up through the same gap between the leather seat and the plastic panel, then through the area where the seat folds down and into the trunk, ending in the same area.

    I am afraid that someone will get their foot caught in the wires where it comes up from the carpet, and where it comes up from the passenger foot step to the gap between the leather seat and the plastic panel. The only alternative I can think of is to take off all the interior panels on that side and run the wires through that. Is this what you did, or are you running the wires like my install? If you did take off the interior panels, was it difficult? Any pointers would be helpful. I hope you understand my explanation of how the wires are run. I can clarify what you don't understand or take a picture.

    Thanks!

    Yup, that's what I did. It was fun. I ended up removing the entire rear seat to get it out of the way.

    Fold them down remove the velcro that holds in the spare tire mat. The passenger side is held by four bolts on the back of the seat. The driver side is held down by 3 bolts 2 on the back 1 on the side. Then the actual part you sit on is held down by 2 clips in the front and 1 bolt in the back.

    I had my wires run under that area but I decide I wanted them to come out where the hole where the light was in the cargo area. As seen in the picture. Thats when I pulled the passenger side panel.

    First you have to remove the bracket that held the rear seat on. Then pop the cover off the rear speaker. It is held on by clips. Remove the 3 screws in the speaker. Remove the wiring harness. The rest of that panel is held on by clips. That leaves you plenty of room to run all your wires.

    I also pulled the carpet panel out of the cargo area. That was pretty simple. I will let you figure that out.

    This is the quick explanation. If you have any questions feel free to ask me? I am not the expert. There are a bunch of pictures and some pretty good resources at www.clubrsx.com you might try. I might be able to get you some pictures but I don't wanna take all that apart again.

    No Problem

    Wow, that seems like a lot of work! I'll start taking off a few panels to see what I can do. After fixing my monitor, my next POA is to make an enclosure like yours to hold my amp. Thanks for the help, and keep up the good work.

    It was. The first time it took a few hours. I could probably tear out most of the interior in about 45 minutes now.

    I would suggest a USB Digital Audio Converter for your sound. Its stereo, not 5.1 or anything, but the sound on mine is fantastic.

    I had a pretty productive weekend. I hacked my DWW-6500 to turn on with my car. I used one of w3bma5t3rs(or however he spells his name) laptop turn on modules. I installed the entire thing into the unit.

    I only had one problem, in locating the connections for the power button I actually broke the power button off the board. So, my power button doesn't work any more. I don't need it now though because it comes on with the car.

    You need moderate skill to do this. It requires soldering and some mechanical ability to take the unit apart. Anyway, here is what I did.

    I soldered the power button connections to this connector this is the safest place I found to tie into power button. This is on the back of the LCD screen.


    I ran the wire in to the main case of the unit following the path of the ribbon cable.

    I tied the ground and the ACC into the back of the unit where the wiring harness connects.


    I tied the usb protection of the turn on module into the board with the dvd eject button and usb connector. It is soldered to the ground and +5 volt of the usb.

    The board is mounted to the next to the dvd drive.


    I covered it with tape to make sure none of the soldered connections touch and used some mounting tape to hold it in place.

    I was acutally able to mount the unit a little more flush when I put it back together
