If you have have the dash out, its do able but takes some time. What I did was all the wires going from front to back, starting at the HU go under the airbag to the pass side cubby hold and route to the fuse panel behind the tray, go along the back wall. Remove the alum piece with the holes in it and the center console, also helps with the seats out. Run the wire along the main harness under the alum piece and center console.

I hope you can understand what I'm on about.

Ill try to take some pics of what I'm talking about, but its doable.

FYI I have a alpine 9887. Boston acoustics component 5.25" in the front and 6" coax in the rear. Behind the driver seat is a PDX-4.100. Almani self-powered sub.

There is room in the center tunnel and you do not need to remove the dash. That is the route I went.

Routed through the center tunnel, up and under the dash, then behind the left and right cubby holes to the front speakers. RCA cables and all.

If you have the touring pack option, you can also hide wires behind the small strips of carpet on the sides of the frame. I had read that it's best to route RCA cables separate from power cables to minimize electrical interference, so I routed the RCA cables behind the carpet, very easy to do and not noticeable.
