2016 Elantra SE: Getting thru the firewall ?

Unlike the 2015, the path to getting from the battery through the firewall for power for a subwoofer doesn't seem to be just under the driver side hood hinge (it's all very solid metal, I even drilled a small exploratory hole but everything seems blocked), and the hood release cable is buried so far down and via a tiny grommet that it can barely be seen from inside and looks totally blocked under the hood. So how and where has anyone run power through the firewall for a 2016 automatic ? I need to move my sub from my 2009 which will be retired to light utility usage...

Why not get your B+ from the cabin fuse box?

Of all the things I ever lost I miss my mind the most.

Good grief, no wonder this site is close to moribund... you suggest tapping a 30 amp + 8 gauge wire from the cabin fuse box ? We'll ignore the mechanical impossibility of that, not to mention the half dozen reasons why it's wrong electrically...lets start that tapping 30+ amps from wiring that is all substantially less than 8 gauge actually cannot handle the amperage safely nor can it actually deliver the required current. Then please explain exactly how you would make such a tap to fit ? I have ignored this site for years, now I recall why... senior members who are complete imbeciles...

Man, insults will get you nowhere! You would be surprised how much help these guys give to others in the forum. If you don’t think the answer/comment is correct, just state your opinion and and let it go at that without insulting anyone!
