    Running it through the boot isn't that hard. I did mine years ago when I ran speakers in the doors. It's not too bad, just a little tight!

    A Dremel is oh so handy for this job. I wish I had mine when I replaced my speakers. Ended up using some wire cutters and it worked okay.

    I used a Dremel as well, and had to add a spacer to fit my CDTs in there.
