    Finishing My First System & Need Help

    First off I just want to say thank you to everybody for all their help. I got into car audio a few months ago and learned almost everything I know from here and caraudioforum.com. There is no other forum I know of that has members as knowledgeable as you guys. That being said I want to get your final approval/input on what will be my final setup. I currently have a pioneer 4800 and cdt cl61-A's with tw-24 tweeters. Over this christmas break I plan on finishing my systemby adding an orion 4002 to power my component speakers, a fi ssd10, and a kicker zx750. I want to get the 1ohm version of the ssd and have my stereo shop wire it to the zx750 in series. The ssd will be going in this http://www.audioenhancers.com/catalo...mc_sgmx70.html box. I also plan on buying both a 4 guage(for sub) and 6 guage(I know its overkill but its for my speakers) amp kits. Now that you all know my situation here are the questions:
    How do you think this setup will be?
    Can you forsee ANY problems with one component of the system not being compatible with another?
    Will I have problems running both amps off my battery (the guys at my shop said it should be fine as long as I have a good batery)?
    Is there ANYTHING I should know before I go through with this?
    Any other comments?

    Thanks everyone for all your help

    Didn't really read it fully but caught the part about the battery and what not. Your alternator is the deciding factor for how much current your system can draw, not your battery.

    Depends on how many amps your alternator supplies and the output of the amps.

    Judging by the extended-cab truck box, I'd imagine you have an extended-cab truck. Your alternator should be fine just running the comp amp and a 750.1. If you notice any problems, I bet the Big 3 would take care of them.

    Ahould sound decent for a daily driving setup. Nothing spectacular, but a nice start if you're just getting into the scene.

    Re: Finishing My First System & Need Help

    Hey some people have been telling me that the orion 4002 needs 4 guage wire so I was thinking on getting two of these http://www.woofersetc.com/index.cfm?...&Product_ID=15 amp kits. Would these work fine?

    Meh, you get what you pay for. I'd at least go with some of the entry-level Stinger or KnuKonceptz wire.
