where to run wire through firewall

Im in the process of putting an amp in my 95 yj. Im not too sure where to run the power wire through the firewall. Is there any pre existing holes, or do i drill out my own. Thanks in advance.

Also there's a hole filled with expanding foam on both sides up essentially behind the mirror. Open the door and pull the plastic end cap off the dash. You should see what I mean if you look forward. Then open the hood and look back under the cowl. It's tight to get your hand in from the hood side so I suggest either sending the wires through from the cabin side or using a fish tape or fish wire to pull them back.
