Hi all !
I live in Sweden, and I am really pleased with this small car.
And I was even more pleased to find a forum for it, very nice !
I am about to install an amplifier in the trunk of my Picanto EX 1.1 autmatic, air condition.
I have choosen a Rockford Fosgate p4004 that I intend to put on the right "2/3" of the backseat. It will feed the front door speakers (LX audio 5.25 coax) , and a small but capable subwoofer (MDS X-MAX Fanatic 1.10 XM).
My amp are to be fed by a 25mm2 cable directly from the battery.
The cable is 12mm in diameter.
My question is - does anyone know of any "spare" hole in the wall behind the engine that I can use for pulling the cable through there ?
If I need to drill that hole (hope not..), where is the best place to do so..?
I have seen a few amp installations among all the nice pics of different Picantos
here, so that is why I ask.
How did you do it ?
Thanks !

Don need to drill holes. I do not know the exact place to pass through the wire to battery, coz my sound system was done by the accessory guy. He didn't drill any hole. I only knew he bend down inside and found a hole through. But with some difficulty he managed to get the wire pass through. U have to look around to find out. I just want to let you know u don't need to drill a hole for that purpose. Sorry, can't help you much. Mayb some expert can enlighten you.
