Subwoofer installation

Hey guys,
I just bought a 2008 jeep liberty. I love the thing, minus the sound system. I have some sick polk audio subwoofers i want to install but i HATE drilling into my vehicles. IS there anyway to run the power wire from the battery to the trunk without drilling through the firewall? I previously owened a 99 grand cherokee and i simply slid it through the door panel. It doesnt seem possible to me at the moment. Any suggestions?

When I did my install in my 09 I found a rubber gasket/cap thing in the far right of the firewall when looking under the hood. I poked through and got my 0 gauge wire through and kept a water tight seal.

This is a pic from inside if you pull down the panel below the steering wheel, far left underneath.

I removed the radio and spliced into the speaker wires with a rca converter.

Where did you get the converter from, and which wires did you splice?
