Hey all, new to the forum. I've done quite a bit of reading/research here but never actually posted. Wanted to get some opinions on the setup i'm looking to put in my truck. I've done systems before, but never with the space limitations of an extended cab truck.
I currently have
- Clarion CX501 Double Din Head Unit
- Kappa 682.9cf in rear doors
- Kappa 680.9cs in front doors
I would like to add a kappa 4 channel amp to power the door speakers properly and a kappa 1 channel amp to power a sub. I've thought about a 5 channel amp but I can't find one I really like that has the RMS power i'm looking for (100x4 + 300-500x1). From all the research i've done I think my best sub option is a stealthbox that goes in the center console of the truck. Any input on the amp setup would be greatly appreciated of course.
My main question being how I should implement the wiring setup for this truck. I'm currently thinking that i'd run my power (0-4ga) to a 2 farad cap which would then run to a distribution block (fused or not fused?) and split out the power to the four channel and single channel amps. I think I can fit all of this under the back seat and keep it looking clean.
Any suggestions on the best amp kits/gauge wires to use here? I've seen some reccomendations for KnuKonceptz on the forum, but i've never actually used them. I've read some different theories on CCA wire vs pure copper wire but since i'm not looking for a real competition setup I'm not sure I need the pure copper here. Also any input on the best caps/distribution blocks would be appreciated.
I also thinking i'll need to upgrade to an optima yellow top as well as completing the big 3.
