When I do an install I always work my way from the front to the rear. This way it helps you to make sure all is done in order. I get all wires and or cables ready for install. I do all under the hood prep and install first. Then I go to the head unit making sure the harness and all other wires and cables are ran properly to the sides of the car. I then go to the front speakers. Watching for clearance issues and running the wires properly through the boots. I then run all wires toward the amps making my way toward the rear speakers. After installing the rear speakers and running wires to the rest I work on amp and sub installation. The best part is tuning the system once all is cleaned up and hidden properly.
