    need an amplifier installation kit + other wires

    need a wiring kit to wire up my system in sig. , i should look for a 4 gauge kit right? also is there a kit that comes with extra wire so i can go ahead and do the big 3 or should i do that with thicker wire? also what wire should i use to wire my subwoofer to amplifier? 14 gauge?

    Re: need an amplifier installation kit + other wires

    Do you plan on upgrading to a speaker amp in the future? If not, 4awg will be fine for now. As far as I know, there are no kits that come with extra wire specifically for the Big 3, I can build you a custom kit, but as far as one goes in the retail market... good luck. You should do the Big 3 in as big of a wire as you can afford. For the sub, 14awg would be fine, you could go as big as 12awg, but 14 should be fine.

    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.

    Re: need an amplifier installation kit + other wires

    actually yea i want to add a speaker amp later on down the road, but for now will i have to put in a distribution block? i would rather not put one in now just wait till i actually get the next amp

    but just a overall summary, all i gotta do is hook up rca's from headunit to amp, then run power wire from amp to battery terminal, run ground wire from amp to ground location , and thats just basically it? where does the remote wire on the amplifier go? does it goto the headunit's wiring harness remote wire?

    sorry if im asking noobish questions, i just want to make sure 100% i know what im doing before i do it

    You got it in the remote question. Hook it to the HU.
    As far as the power goes, just get a distro later if you would rather not get it now.
    You've got everything else correct.

    Make sure to run the same size ground as your power.
