    Please critique my first build

    Ok, so I am still very fresh to the car audio scene. This will be my first build for my 2007 Nissan Sentra. I have done a little research through the forums and have settled on the things below.

    Here is what I have already purchased:

    JVC HDR20 head unit (I know its more on the basic side)
    AQ1200D Amp


    Here is what I plan to buy unless there are any objections:

    2 X Sundown Audio SA-12's
    Amp installation Kit from Knuconceptz (Which one should i get tho?)
    Dash Installation Kit and Wiring Harness
    Sound Ordnance Bass Bunker Sealed Box with 1.260cubic feet per chamber


    Do you guys think this is a good setup? I'm shooting for mostly SQ but wouldn't mind a little THUMP.

    So I have a few questions.

    1) The amp i want runs 510X1 @ 4 ohm, 870X1 @ 2 ohm, 1200X1 @ 1 ohm. The subs I want are rated at 600 watts RMS with the option of dual 4 ohm coils or dual 2 ohm coils. Which would be better? Wiring two 4 ohm subs for a 1 ohm load, or two 2 ohms subs at a 2 ohm load?

    2) My battery is new and rated at 500 CCA, and my alternator at 110 amps. I do plan on doing the big three when i install all of this stuff. My question is do any of you think I will need to add a battery or upgrade my alternator?

    3) What gauge size would you guys recommend to power my amp and subs?

    4) Am I missing anything?

    Thanks much for helping a newbie out.

    Run 1/0, u may have to add a batt check your voltage after u do the big 3. And yes build an enclosure and Don't buy a prefab. Get dual 4s for a final impedance of 1 ohm to get the most out of your amp.
