    Yes, it should sound just fine. How you set the gains will be dependant on the preout voltage from your head unit. The higher the voltage, the lower your gains need to be in order to run the amp to it's full potential w/o distortion to the subs.




    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    You will need to buy some RCA cables, sheilded, as well as a remote wire.

    No, in most cases you're on your own for wires. I sudgest going and getting an 'Amplifier Instalation Kit' from like Best Buy or Circuit City. You might also try online like at www.millionbuy.com , I got mine from there and I'm fairly happy. The kit from million buy also comes with instructions and a diagram.
