RCA Cable length?

For those of you who have wired amps in the trunk, what have you found when running cables there? I'm about to order some RCA cables and would like to get as short as possible, avoiding the dreaded loop while still leaving a bit of slack to play with on either end.

If all else fails, you weren't driving a Mazda6

Idk. My RCA's are 16ft long or something. Maybe run a wire back there, cut it, and figure out what the length is.

Riki Riki Riki. The whole POINT of having forums is so that I don't have to a) think for myself or b) do any *gasp* manual labor.

I guess I'll be doing that after all if no one recalls

Lol. Good point. I'd say somewhere around 10-12ft depending on if you run it through the center console and under the carpet or along the side of the car and depends on where your amp rack is. I have a lot of slack so I know 16 is too long.

Oh and remember about the little holes, one on each side of the car behind the cushions next to the back seats. Idk if the speed6 has them but I'd assume it does. They are perfect to run wire through so it's hidden, if you're running it along the sides.

I'm with project dog on this one. What holes? I plan on pulling out the seats and lifting the carpets in order to lay down a bunch of the Dynamat. So I should have easy access to these holes!

Ok. I have pictures.

Its the same on each side.



Fold the seat down and un clip the cushion, you'll see the hole.



It's right underneat the clip for each cushion. I have mine closed up, the hole is under the deadener, you can see my RCA's going through it.
