I assume you have access to both sides of the rubber conduit.
If so, what I would try is pushing a coat hanger (covered in tape, so you won't short anything) through the tubing. Try the top of the bundle first. If you can't get past a blockage on the top, try the front or back side. DON'T force it, just push it hard enough to get past hang-ups, not hard enough to force it out the side of the tubing or through a wire (NOOOOOOOO!)
If that doesn't work, try and see if you can pop the tubing off either or both sides (kick panel and door sides), do so and compress it (making it shorter and easier to pass wiring).
If you still haven't made it, or if the fish is through but tight, try some wire lube (aka wire glide) Its' about $7 for quart+ size bottle from Lowe's or Home Depot or an electrical supply house. Get only the clear stuff, not the vanilla pudding color wire glide. Don't be shy about how much you put on there, just make sure it doesn't drop into any live (powered) connectors. Not sure if it would short it out, but not worth the risk.
You'd have hell getting a drill into the tight confines, but as an absolute worst case, you're not keeping the car long, don't care about how butchered it looks, etc., you could take and awl and pound a hole into the door and into the kick panel side. Shudder!
Let me know how it turns out. If these ideas don't work, let me know what you have tried.
Also, I hope you checked clearances on the magnet to window, and tweeter to door panel, so you don't have a disappointment at the bitter end.
Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.
