    Me=n00b What do i need to hook up my subwoofers and amp?

    I have a Rockford 1500BD for my amp and 2 Kicker S12L7's for my subs. I need to wire my subs to my amp and my amp to my battery. I have been looking at amp wireing kits but i am not for sure what i need. All i know is i need a 150A fues, 1.5 fread compcitor, and 4 gauge wire. Any ideas on where i can find a good kit at? Also i need my amp wired to 14.4 volts instead of 12v how do i do that?

    thank you

    go with a 4 guage kit if you dont plan to upgrade... go with bigger wire if you do.

    It's impossible to "wire" a system to a specific voltage. Your car's electrical system is dependant on that. Most cars run at about 14 - 14.4 volts on, 12 volts off

    My first recommendation is the Knuconcepts wiring kit but if that is not an option for you a Wal-mart Scoshe 4gauge kit will work well for a good price.
