Default Where to run a amp power wire through the firewall?

Tonight I started looking around to see if I could find a unused grommet at the firewall to run a power wire for a stereo amp. I did not seem to have much luck. To those of you that have run amps, are you running the power cord through the main wire harness grommet? If so were you able to get it to run through with the rest of the wires (is there room for a 4 gauge wire) or did you cut an additional hole? Every other car that I have owned had a open grommet that made it easy. Finally if you could provide pictures or how you ran the wire through it would be great.

I ran mine through the existing grommet. Simply slice a little to one side and push the wire through. I ran two 8 gauge wires so I would imagine a 4 gauge will fit just fine.
