    you'll need to run another set of RCA's to the new amp, along with power-ground-remote like the other one... start with that.

    Re: Can someone help me install my pheniox gold 5.25 components :D

    What gauge wiring do you have going from your battery to your current amp?

    If it is 8 gauge or thinner (larger number) you are going to need to upgrade.
    You really want 4 or 0 gauge going from the the battery to the distribution box..

    You will need a Distribution box to distribute the 1 power line to 2 amps.
    You are going to need proper fuses for the block also..

    You are also going to need 4 gauge wire for the power to the amp and 4 gauge wire for the ground.
    You are also going to need a crimp on connector with the flat hoop so you can put a bolt thru it and bolt it to some bare metal for a ground...

    You are also going to need 1 rca cable to connect the front left and right speaker pre-out on the headunit to the front left and right input on the amp.

    You are also going to need some wire for the remote power on...

    You are going to need speaker wire to connect the speakers to their crossover and you might need more wire to connect the crossover to the amp depending on what wire is already there.

    Ontop of that stuff you are going to need whatever it takes to install the speakers in the door.

    and install the amp to the car so it doesn't move..

    And tools...

    Also get some sound deadener like Rammatt really improves the sound.. specifically midbass..

    I guess thats it..
