    Need help choosing speaker wire, amp kit, rca.

    Here's my setup:

    Alpine HU 9813
    JL w6
    JL 500/1 amp sub
    JL 300/2 amp Components
    Polk Audio db6501(upgrade in the future)

    I'm looking to wire up everything and I'm not sure which speaker wire, rcas, amp kits are good.

    Here's what I'm looking at:
    Amp wiring kit:
    Monster Cable MPC P300 Bap1000 1000 Watts 300 Series Dual 4/8 Gauge Amplifier Power Kit $65
    Amazon.com: Brand New Monster Cable MPC P300 Bap1000 1000 Watts 300 Series Dual 4/8 Gauge Amplifier Power Kit: Electronics

    Speaker wire:
    Monster MPC S402 SW-5M Extreme Low Noise 2-Conductor Speaker Wire (5 meters) $30
    Amazon.com: Monster MPC S402 SW-5M Extreme Low Noise 2-Conductor Speaker Wire (5 meters): Electronics

    RCA:
    Monster cable rca... Do I need one 4 channel rca and one 2 channel rca cable for my setup?

    Thanks

    Re: Need help choosing speaker wire, amp kit, rca.

    You need 2 sets of 2 channel rcas since you're not running a 4 channel amp. I say go to KnuKonceptz.com and save yourself some money. They have some good kits and are reasonably priced.

    2 of these Rca's - Knukonceptz product detail for NEW KARMA SS 2 CHANNEL 6 METER RCA CABLE
    20ft (6meters) of speaker wire - Knukonceptz product detail for KARMA SS 12 GAUGE SPEAKER WIRE
    27ft of 4awg wire that monster kit uses 4 and 8awg wire - Knukonceptz product detail for KLMX KABLE 4 GAUGE METALLIC BLUE POWER/GROUND CABLE
    1 of these 2 way fused distro block - 2 Way Distribution System
    4 of these terminals - Knukonceptz product detail for GOLD PLATED 4AWG RING TERMINAL -BLACK
    1 remote wire - Knukonceptz product detail for KOLOSSUS KABLE 18 GAUGE BLUE PRIMARY / REMOTE WIRE 20'

    The cheaper knu kit is $64..

    IMO all the items I listed above are of far better quality then what you have listed above. If you want the same quality of the suff you listed above then you can go with knu's lower lines for a good bit less.

    Re: Need help choosing speaker wire, amp kit, rca.

    I'm think about buying this amp kit from knukoncepts:
    Kolossus Fleks 4 Gauge Amplifier Installation Kit
    4 Gauge Amplifier Installation Kit
    It comes with a 120A fuse but I only need a 90A fuse. Is this a problem or will the fuse still work fine?

    I know this is for a 2 channel or mono amp. I'm going to buy a distro block, another set of rca cables, more speaker wire, terminals, etc.
    Thanks

    I'm about to order.. I have another question.
    I'm about to order this, KonFUSED 2 Way Distribution System but it says to select a fuse size and I'm not sure how to do that. The JL 500/1 has a 50A fuse and the 300/2 needs a 40A fuse. Should I just order those two fuse sizes?

    I used to like the Karma SS Speaker wire but it is so hard to strip and fit in tight places lol. I use the Klear Speaker Kable and I love it so much more. Just a preference and it's cheaper too. Have been using since with no problems so far.
