There is a fuse box on the driver side behind the back seat and accessible from the trunk on the side. You can follow the bus lines that are already feeding into that area and there are several grommits on the rear wall behind the rear seats that you can feed into. I had an installer run my cables as he ran 4 gauge from the battery all down the passenger side and then into amp area which is also in the trunk , there are lines there also that feed into the trunk which is what he used, but your right, this vehicle is solid
Nice posting. I was looking to do the same thing this weekend. Im tired of my ML sub blowing. I listen to a lot of rap and hip-hop and I dont think it was designed for that. So Im going with an aftermarket amp and sub. I couldnt figure out a way into the trunk though.
By the way, Cash, I feel the way you do. Love the name.
O my goshhhh that was the worst part (but in my experience with car audio that's always the worst part).
Open the passenger door and pull up the door sill. Then pull up out that corner piece. That will expose a whole bunch of wires.
Then pull down the black cover that's under the glove box.
Then all the way in the front right, there's a gromet that feeds into the engine bay. you can (carefully) poke a hole in that gromet and feed the wire through. It's really frustrating but this will help a lot.
I literrally reclined the passenger seat and laid UPSIDE down with my head on the floor so I can see the gromet and feed the wire through.
Is there a sub that would fit into stock location that would replace the stock ML sub? I'm not looking for extra bass, just want to find alternatives incase I need to replace the stock ones. Thanks
Ps I believe the stock one is 10"? How thick?
Well, if youre installing coil overs, I assume you have the SWB. If thats the case, do your rear seats recline? I took mines over the bestbuy and they looked at it and when they realized the seats reclined, they said they wouldnt touch it.
BTW, I took it to BB because I have a buddy that works there and he's done all my other cars.
