    its quite straight forward man, but if you don't have the tools i guess it'd be difficult. if you don't mind a little drive, stereo town in fremont does good work.

    for that amp this would be good for you
    4 gauge amplifier installation kit

    and in order to install with a stock headunit, grab a line output converter and tap your speakers for a signal. then run RCA's from the converter to your amp's inputs.

    I could help you out if you really want someone to go over it with you.

    One thing to keep in mind when selecting your wiring kit is future upgrading. If you plan on upgrading your amplifier, or adding a second for speakers, or both, choosing a 0 AWG wiring kit will prevent you from having to redo the wiring later. The 4AWG wiring kit that jungstah linked you is perfect for this amp, but if you add another amp (~1000w+ total), you will want 0awg.

    As for the line out converter, I suggest this: http://www.amazon.com/Cache-CLOC-Out.../dp/B006H1AED4

    There are many cheaper options, but this is the problem: A cheap line out converter is a huge bottleneck. The signal coming from your headunit goes immediately to the LOC, and if that is cheap and degrades sound quality, everything else is going to suffer. I haven't used one of these LOC's, but if you are planning on keeping the stock radio this is your best bet.

    Second Opinion: Cache Audio CLOC+D Hi/low converter? Opinions or recomendations?

    Can't say for certain, but I would guess the pioneer unit will be better than what Scion uses as a standard feature. It has 3 sets of preamp outputs... that alone might make it better than the stock radio, because you won't have to worry about adding a LOC

    Re: Bay area i need help!

    you would find a wiring harness for your tc and snap it into the existing harness coming from the car. that harness will convert the wires from toyota's color codes to the standard colors such as green, white, violet, yellow for power, black ground, etc...

    then you would match the colored wires of the headunit with the harness and solder or crimp them together. slap on the dash trim ring etc and your headunit should be done.

    for the sub/amp--
    run RCA's from the wiring kit from the sub outputs on the headunit to the trunk.
    tap blue remote wire onto the blue lead out of the headunit and that will be your amp turn-on wire, run it to trunk.
    attach terminal onto the power wire and connect it to the + of your battery and run to trunk.
    attach terminal on ground wire and attach to chassis for ground.
    connect all of the above wires on to amp!

    hook subs up according to impedance and connect to amp. and you're done..i think
    correct me if im wrong, but that should be the gist of it
