Default HELP!!! I can't route my rca cables to my amp!

I've tried everything I can think of. Where is the best place to route your rca cables from your radio through the dash? I tried following the stock wiring but run into the heater core. Please help me, this is my first time lol

I ran mine over to the cluster, pulled the heater controls, reached up into the dash just above the heater duct on the passenger side, fed the RCAs down from behind the heater controls and grabbed them. I then proceeded to tuck them under the carpet and run them under the passenger side trim. It wasn't easy but it worked in my ZJ and in my buddy's ZJ when he put a system in it.

I have 3 sets of RCA's in my jeep, 2 sets to the 4 channel amp running the speakers and another set to the amp that runs the sub. Not to mention I completely re-wired the stereo, and I have component speakers up front and the crossovers are in the back under the seat along with the amps. That means the 4 front speakers, the RCA's, and the amp power wire all have to run from the front of the jeep to underneath the rear seats. 2 sets of the RCA's are ran up and behind the glove box and underneath the door sill panels. just tuck em up in there and you can zip tie them to existing wires to keep them from hanging down.

There was a small passage in the metal frame from behind the heater controls that goes under the steering wheel. I brought mine out that passage, up and over the steering column, zip tired it to other wires to hold it out of the way, down the driver side kick panel, down the door seals, under the carpet and under the back seat.
