I've been a shade tree mechanic for decades and I'm an engineer so I didn't follow a write up. I did my own planning and installation.
I did run a direct feed power wire from the battery for my two power packs (one for the 4 regular speakers, one to run a dual voice coil subwoofer), the CB radio and a couple of other things.
Really, all you need to do is to hook up a wire to the positive terminal, put a fuse in it right there at the battery, run the wire in through to the dash and connect it to the power pack. Attach a ground wire to a convenient spot under the dash. Wire up the rest to the radio (an aftermarket harness adapter makes life so much easier) and you're in business.
