    I'm putting speakers in the door of my blazer (manual windows).

    To run the speaker wire do I just use heavy gauge wire and run it with some give across the door jamb? Or should it be encased in some sort of tubing? What should I use to seal the holes in the door and in the body....just some rubber grommets?

    I was thinking about bringing it into the truck just below the door jamb switch. Anyone have better ideas or pictures of what their's looks like?

    Thanks,

    I take it you dont have power windows... The power door/window rigs have that rubber tubin thing inbetween the door and the cab pre- installed. If you can find that part somewhere you can just cut the holes and rivet it in...

    heres one with the boot cut in half...

    Good idea. I'll find one in the junkyard or order one from LMC.

    Drill hole in door and body , insert grommet in each , use just big enough to allow wires with heat shrink on them to move with door , put heat shrink on both wires together as one conduit , drink a beer and your done with it looking pretty clean :thumb:
