    First Sub

    I just bought my first sub recently with matching amp but I am not sure how to install it. Can someone provide me a step by step basic installation process?

    Over priced and nothing special by any means... You need the wire to power the amp...

    Re: First Sub

    I knew that but is there a specific kind? I am really new at this. So far I got lucky with my speakers and head unit by not needing to do any wiring, but this is another story.

    Well You could start with OFC 4 gauge which is good for 1500 or so watts depending on the length... If you want to run more then that though might as well step up to 1/0 right off the bat...
