I finally made a decision on what subs and amps I am buying. I bought 2 Rockford fosegate Power HX2s, The 2000 watt ones. and I am going to buy two JBL 1200.1 amps. I Need someones help.

1.) I Would like to know what gauge wiring i should purchase?
2.) What Kind of Box? Ported/Bandpass
3.) Should I buy an Extra Battery?
4.) Should I buy a Capacitor?
5.) Should I run a component system of H/U or Amp?

I am also looking if someone can draw me a rough diagram on how to run all these from the new battery to the old? Please help me out!

1. 1/0 split to two 4awg
2. Ported
3. Woudln't hurt play time when the engine is off
4. No, you'll need a higher output alternator with a possible total of 260A draw
5. Amplifier
