Default Where to Run Power Wire

I'm new to the Subaru scene, but not car audio.
I have some 0awg I want to run to the trunk for my audio setup.
I've been looking under the hood, and think I've found a place to run through the firewall.
I'm looking for advise and/or how others have run the power wire.

Thanks

I also have an 03 and ran some 4awg to the trunk... I just went all on the driver side of the car. Through a grommet in the firewall (probably the one you're looking at), under the door kick plate thing, and up under the back seat into the trunk.

As long as you keep it away from any moving petal parts, it's pretty straight forward... just removing trim pieces and putting them back. Now 0awg is a bunch thicker but from what I remember, it should work.

well i ran my power wire through the firewall. as well. You can then run it under the driver side kickpanel. and under the carpet. Its kinda keep explorering thing. I would also recommend removing or loseing your back seats. But thats just my suggestion.

Actually the grommet I was looking at was on the passenger side.
I think it's where the ECU wiring goes?
I was thinking of going down the passenger side of the car.

Thanks for your input!
Will look for this other grommet where you ran it.
