because if it's not... say 30" away, mounted behind the fuse box or something... and the wire get's snagged from the fuse holder, or if the power cord get's spiced or cut and get's in contact with the frame... your gonna have loud crackling noises that will either 1) scare the crap out of you if your within range. or 2) melt and damage metal frame and other things that you might need to keep your car running as it should.

How big of a wire can you fit through the steering column on the manual install?

I wish I would have seen this a few weeks ago. I spent about an hour wondering where to route the power wire through the firewall. I ended up going through the clutch filler plate... and I thought I was a pioneer of this method... I guess not! Well I guess great minds think alike after all...

Hi Folks . New Focus Fanatic. Always been a Ford guy, but this is my first Focus. 07 SES Sedan. I love this car. Sure beats the Ranger I traded for it.
My question, though, is whether an amp/subwoofer assembly from an 04 Focus will fit in my car and if so, do I need any rewiring? Thanks all..

Amazing Guide!!!!
I just spent the last day or two setting up 2 12's and a 700w amp.
Very good instructions on wiring. My remote wasnt getting enough juice so I hooked it to the power on like it said and now its perfect.

Nice write up. What gauge wire are you running there?
