Carwidth+Y+Z+P

Y= Height from floor
Z= Center to center front rear wheel * .66
P= Length of plugs (they wont bend)

Therefore a CRX
57.3"+36"+(90.6" * .66)+3"=156.096"

Average rca length you will find in stores is 17ft which is PLENTY of cabling for a crx

When I did a pro installs, I'd purchase 300 ft of RCA shielded cable and enough ends + 10% to cover the install.

Depends on where you plan to route it. Regardless 6 to 10 feet will be more than enough

six feet might not be enough (one arm span) but 10ft/3m will be plenty if going right down the center console.

I generally did this as I hated the wire "bumps" you'd find with your shoes. Sure you have to pull a seat to do this, but that is easy.

I'll probably take my RCA out this weekend as I don't run gear anymore. I'll let you know how long they were.
