Default Am i Screwed??

so after tearing apart my car to apply alpha damp and run my amp 4gauge power wire through my firewall. i started thinking about how i was gonna run rcas and speaker wire, i looked at the accordion grommets on my drivers side and passenger side and figured id run through there......decided to take off the speaker grill and look at the connection. my car has the speaker wires soldered to the speaker....then to an adapter.....THEN it runs through the door and up into the dash

Problem the drivers side accordion looks to be unaccessable because its blocked by my emergency brake system,

theory- do i try and find where those speaker cables run into my head unit....and cut them before they run into the headunit and route them to my amp essentially creating the chain

headunit--->eq-----> amp speaker wire----> old(existing) speaker connections---->speaker


what are my options?

Maybe make a small hole from the outside of your factory wire grommet into the cabin of your car. Then run a screwdriver into the hole and into the cabin. Feel around and see if you can find it. Sometime they are reachable, but not visible.

pull the accordion boot grommet from the body side and then feed the speakerwire in the hole toward the inside of the car. routing will take a smooth technique to get it in where you can feed it and reach it from the inside. {a wire hanger can help}

then feed the wire in the accordion boot to the door. and reinstall the boot grommet

you can also remove the parking brake, usually only 3 nuts/bolts holding it on
