Installed a small tv today

I wanted to have a small tv in the 185rb so wife and daughter can have some entertainment at night. Found an insignia at best buy for $89 for a 19". Got it home and realized the input was 12v dc. Found a plug that fit and put 12v to it and it works great. So this is where some fun started. I want to be able to run the tv off 12 v not since I see it will do it. I had a plan to mount it up by the radio so I knew there was 12v there already. I pulled out the radio and found that the factory had left exposed speaker wires just randomly laying there, possible touching when moving. I installed 12 volt professionally for over 16 years and I cant believe they leave them like this. I could see this being part of the radio failures that's for sure. When those wires touch it a direct short. I drilled a small hole in the plate for the av hook up and mounted with a swivel mount to the side of the cabinet. Turned out pretty nice, just no way to hide the wires going up the wall to the tv. I will let the wife decide how to hide the wire.
