Speaker wire Routing: Amp to Doors ????

Who's doing what?

1) Are you running new speaker wire from the amp all the way to the door, which requires drilling new holes in the body and door?

2) Are you doing the same as above, but running the wire out the side of the door opening (near dash) to the side of the door panel, which exposes the wire only when the door is open?

3) Or, are you running the new wire to splice into the old wire behind the HU?

The obvious was to run the wire through the rubber boot going to the door. But I found it is a plug, not a boot; so that won't work. Unless I tap into the speaker wire near the kick panel before it goes to the plug, but I'm thinking drilling holes and using grommets would be better.

Those of you with amps, how did you route your speaker wires?
