Sound deadening foam usually works really well especially in tandem with Fatt Mat or whatever kind of sound insulation you wanna use. I don't really have a good location option, but I'm sure you can figure out something :-D.

What kind of alternator are you upgrading to? A nice 3 farad would be nice too

HOwie~

The cable for mine is run from the firewall plug and underneat the lower left floor trim to the backseat. I discovered this when installing sound deadener.

I have a 1997 Hyundai Elantra. However I use 0 gauge as well. My opinion on the matter always go with the best wire just in case. Which I did pumping mad power to my two monster 12's. I ran the wiring thru the door bottom panel. I undid the screws and ran behind the seats. Up front underneath by steering column you should be able to run it out to your battery. I used 15 feet I believe of 0 gauge wiring. Cost me alot, but worth it in my opinion seeing how I wanted to push more then 2000 watts downs the road when I had more money. Dont forget this!! IMPORTANT! I did this before, Remember to run you boost control wire if you have it at same time as you do with 0 gauge wire. That way you dont have to undo the panels again and do it all over again. Its a hassle! Hope it helps.

6-8 gauge is big enough, but on the new HD, you must upgrade the factory negative battery cable to a 2 gauge to avoid additional problems.

Wiring

If you plan on having a "decent" system in car go with 0 or 2 gauge. That way you never have a wiring issue. Oh and when you go to car shows they look at that as well. They give you points on your wiring type depending on how much amps you are pushing. Of course they also look at the set up as well.
