urgent tweeter wiring help!!!

hey guys
i am currently installing 2 set s of type s splits into my car, but after trying to install the tweeters into the a pillars im having a lot of issues trying to run the wires through to the door...
can anyone help me?
th other cables run through the instulated cap that goes in the middle of the two, but i cant get to the other end of it because its in the dash...
can anyone provide a link to a how to or help me out??
this is wrecking my brain!! lol
i cant mount them in the door because there is no flat surface, and the only good space is covered by the window winder.
surely someone else has had to run wires through the door before??
thanks.

i just had a quick look at my car... and i can see your problem.

hmmm i was thinking....

if you can get the glove box out, you can perhaps get access to the hole where the insulated cables run through to the door. I could see the bundle of wires going in the the hole just by opening the glove box. But it will be tricky.

maybe you could pull the rubber insulating off from the hole from the outside, then somehow feed the wires through from behind the glove box, then pull them through from the outside...

i think mounting them in the A pillar would look sweet

i have taken the glove box off, and its an absolute messs behind it!
there are cables everywhere, and you cant even see the side of the car.
there is no way too see through it.
i borrowed a piece of bendy wire and will poke it through from the door and try to trace that back through.

they do look sweet in the a pillars! i have one propped up in there at the moment and even though it doesnt work, it looks good!

if you can get the rubber boot off the plugs between the doors it should be possible to unplug the wiring on the car side, you make need to tap up the pin that stops your door opening too far to get decent access though.

then you just need a drill and a space on the plug to work with
