Best way to wire an amp in the frunk?
 
I haven't had time to poke around the girlfriend's '03 enough to find a way to wire two RCA cables and a remote turn on for an amp mounted in the stock location. I've already made an adapter that will plug into the stock harness for the speakers, power and ground will be pulled from the battery.

Can someone point me to the best place to route the cabling? Through a factory grommet or plug would be preferred.

use rubber plug a few inches above accelerator pedal / behind battery in frunk. Specific location / image can be found in many posts here referencing rear speaker kit install.

Good luck :)

I did attempt to search, but found only frunk-mounted subwoofers, stereo installs without aftermarket amps, and lots of speaker upgrades. After I posed this question here, I did find something with some extensive googling that described the location you suggested.

Thanks for your help, I'll update this thread with pictures for future searches.

This is what you're looking for. It's a rubber plug behind the battery:

What did you do to pass the wires through to the amp? I'm guessing you drilled a hole through the battery compartment and the frunk?

No drilling necessary, there are existing holes you can run the wiring through.

I bought an alpine amp, and a mount plate from cai and mounted mine where the factory cd changer went. I did have to drill 1 quarter inch hole but that was for the mount plate bolt, all the holes for the cables are there already. You need to remove the battery to get enough working room.
