Default Stereo install in my 2000 RS coupe

I started on the install last night here is a quick list of the components being installed.

currently installed is an alpine 9851 HU

TBI
alpine type-s component system
alpine 4 channel 360W amp
alpine type-s 2 way coax speakers

I started on the driver’s side door. I purchased the IA auto speaker adapters. www.iaperformance.com the speakers were too deep for the door(they hit the window) so I had to make small shims and shim the speaker out away from the speaker adapter. Once that process was complete I had to run the wires into the interior of the car. now this is no easy task you are working in a tight place and the door harness isn’t straight like most cars so you have to snake the wires down and over.

on top of running the wires through the door harness, the harness is not large enough to accept the new wires so I had to run the wires outside the harness and zip tie them to the factory door harness.

that is as far as I got last night I will update the post once I complete the rest of the car this weekend.

my plans are to mount the amp under the passenger’s seat, and mount the crossovers in the kick panels ( I checked for clearance and they seem to fit without any trouble.

what have you guys done in the past to run the wires from the doors to the interior of the car? I’d be curious to see pics of the install.

thanks for reading and if you have any tips or criticism let me know.

I usually leave the speakers out b4 running wires. And pull apart the driver's kick panel and drop the underdash so I can get a clearer shot of the door boot. Then I remove the rubber boots from each side of the door jam and try to make them as straight as possible, then take a long zip-tie and push it through with the wires attached at the other end. Then just push them in to the car and put the boot back in place and assymble the door.

i did run the wires before installing the speakers (sorry if i wasnt clear). the door boot wasnt difficult to get to it is just not straight at all even when i un-hooked it from the body/door. the door boot was also way to tight of an ID to fit any more wires through it so i had to route them through the outside.
