    P.S,

    Could you tell me how much power to use for them, and maybe suggest a proven amp? Thanks a lot!

    no amp??????? <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> Well if you have them hooked up to your cd player.....ummmmmmm im surprised they are still playing <img src="confused.gif" border="0"> . You dont want them voices and high notes coming outta them... yah i would look at a amp... and if you think they are bumping now... God bless your ears if you ever get an amp! Most of the amps on the market today come with a X-over built in with a High pass and a Low Pass... Low Pass is what you would wanna use for a sub. Now you need a power wire from your battery (fused no more than 12" i think it is, from the battery), RCA cables from your deck, and the remote lead from it as well. If you have no clue on how to hook it up, i would suggest finding someone that does. The Kick Comp's handle min. 125 watts RMS. times that by 2 and you need an amp that will run minimal 250 watts. Good luck....

    you also need a ground wire. make sure your ground and your power wire is the same gauge. To hook it up, u need to get behind ur head unit, hook up the rca's and remote wire. Then u gotta run ur power wire from ur battery to ur amp. make sure you take off the negative lead to ur battery before you start anything. run it under the carpet or door panel. i think the door panels are easier to run ur wires through. try to ground ur ground as close to the amp as possible. use 8 gauge wire or better.
