I had thought about using a power distribution block and going back to the battery, but wasn't able to find an access point through the firewall... and I spent a few hours looking for one when I was wiring up my LED light bar (I ended up with all the wiring for that done under the hood, using a harness that included a wireless switch). It was in my search for a firewall pass-thru that I came across the harness for the optional power inverter, and I figured that would be good for connecting power outlets, since it's already fused, and I figure that the inverter would draw more power than a couple phones would. I've had the console out a few times since I installed them and the wiring is fine so far. And I have not had any noise or interference with the radio, but I'm running an X-Trons Android head unit, not the factory unit.

There is a wiring harness pass-through in the left fender well near the door hinge. Remove the inner fender liner and you will see it. I recently used it and had no trouble getting through it with a fish tape.

So you are saying that in Patriots that didn't come with the 110 adapter there is a harness for the 110 adapter under the console? If so, do you think that there is possibly a harness for the rear subwoofer that is behind the right rear back panel?

It's actually a few inches under the radio, behind the console.
