Get some 2" wide aluminum from Home Depot/Hardware store and mag a BIG "U" bracket. Paint black and screw to the tunnel. Wires can go forward and be distributed under the carpet. You can put a nice cover on them and make it look clean.

That "U" bracket is called a bale mount. Check with your local Motorola dealer to see if they have extras - most E-vehicle installs are mounted into some sort of console, so the bale mount gets tossed into a spare parts box.
Sometimes truck stops have those mounts as well.
Do you have the lower center console? I have mounted sirens there before. If you do go through the tranny hump, look under the carpet for wires, a/c ducts, cooler lines, etc. Don't drill thru expensive stuff!
