    Icon9 Confused On What To Do Next...

    This is my set up:

    -Dual XDM6820 MP3 Head Unit
    -4 Pioneer 5x7 speakers
    -Phoenix Gold ZX475Ti 4-Channel Amp
    -Kenwood KAC-8151D Mono Amp
    -1 15" Cerwin Vega VMAX-15DVC in a Custom Ported Enclosure i made that is 5.15 cu. ft. @ 32 hz.

    Here's my problem..

    The tough part for me is my wiring. Before i was building my system i had 2 crappy 12's in a bandpass enclosure running in my PG 4-channel amp (yeah i know.. but it still worked) The wiring for that i used was a 8 gauge amp kit.


    Now, i have built my new decent setup and now confused on how to wire everything. My budget is quite low atm and am willing to buy a decent amp kit. In about a year i will be having a new car so i am not willing to upgrade to a 1/0 amp kit yet.

    Would you guys suggest a 4 gauge amp kit for my setup instead?

    I can not be spending around 60 or 70 dollars an amp kit. Put it this way.. i was planning to buy the Scosche Kit from wal-mart. That's how my budget is like. But then i looked at that wal mart amp kit and noticed that the kit produces a 5/9 gauge kit . So i was wondering if there is anything out there that you guys would recommend. Especially if it's on ebay . I was told to just buy 20 feet of 1 gauge of power wire, buy one 4 gauge amp kit and a distro block. But i find it too expensive for my budget . Please experts out there help me with this kind of problem i am having. Thanks.

    Once i get the kit...

    How will i wire everything??

    I know first i will need to remove that 8 gauge kit i had before and replace it. But then before i knew how to install the wires and all that stuff with only one amp but 2 amps i will need help with. If anyone can help me with this part.. i will highly appreciate it.

    So basically this is what i need help on..

    1. Finding the right amp kit for my 2 amps.
    2. Finding the right one with that right price for my budget.
    and 3. How to organanize and hook everything up together.


    Thanks alot everyone for the help!!
