    Go to www.crutchfield.com and look for the amp install video. pretty good video to help you get the idea.

    Btw, you dont have to buy it.

    Re: installing amp

    1. run power wires - leave fuse out until last!
    2. connect ground wire to chasis
    3. Run RCA's and remote wire from HU to amp - do not connect RCA's yet
    4. Connect remote wire
    5. connect ground wire
    6. connect power wire
    7. run speaker wire/connect to amp
    8. Connect RCA's
    9. put in fuse

    Make sure you scrape your grounding spot free of paint and connect it sturdilly.
    Also make sure that all the wires are attached firmly so they don't short out

    That website up there is good too, also there is good info on www.bcae1.com

    I guess I forgot that. Not really necessary, but always better safe than sorry
