    New Guy- System Upgrade questions

    Hi, i jus joined the forum & would like to have a little insight on my setup. Currently i'm running a 15" RE SX & a JBL GTO 1201.1. I've recently wanted to redo things to be more efficient, better, top notch. My wiring was done using basically no kind of thought. I have little in depth knowledge about installs, but can ascertain most of the basics.
    So..:
    -I'm keeping the 15" SX [Its a Dual 2 VC]
    -I'm ditching the JBL amp cuz its not 1 ohm stable. Its being replaced with a US Amps Merlin MD1D that i ordered last night.
    -I'm running & keeping my 0 gauge power & ground wires.
    -I have my remote turn on wire at 18ga and its ran through a switch so I can turn the system on/off [is this ok? should it be fused? remote wire has little current, right?]
    -I'm upgrading my speaker wire to 12awg & running the sub @ 1 ohm [is 12awg a good enough size?]
    -Ditched sharty RCAs for new Rockford Fosgate twisted RCAs
    -box is built by me. ported & tuned to 35hz
    -HU is a temporary unit Eonon 838 (or sumthin like that, but its a cheapo for now til i get get a better 1 but i still like it)
    -stock alternator & no big 3
    -all work done by me

    pics r old, but here they are:

    *wiring is cleaned up now, so dont flame me. that only lasted like 2 days




    opinions, suggestions, comments, help, anything is appreciated.

    *ps sry bout length of post
