    Am I missing anything?

    I'm going to be taking out a aftermarket head unit and putting a new one in along with adding a sub (put it in a stealth box) to the trunk of my car through an amp behind my seat.

    I'm trying to find out what I will need to buy besides the box, speaker and head unit.

    So far:
    RCA cable for head unit to amp
    Speaker Wire for amp to Sub - (WHAT SIZE WIRE and do I need any connectors of some sort?)
    Velcro to hold the box in the trunk.

    Do I need any special tool to remove my current stereo and put the new one in? It's a 91 300zx if that makes any difference and it's a single DIN I believe.

    Do I need a crimping tool or anything like that? What about connectors for the terminals?

    Anything else I'm missing? I'm about to order from cardomain so I may as well pick everything up.

    Dude, honestly, if you don't know what you need to buy.. you should not be attempting to install this system on your own. Go spend a little extra cash and have someone who knows what they are doing do it for you.




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.

    ???

    I'm not clueless, I just don't know the tools I'll need or the size speaker wire needed.

    I've read up on it but I just want to make sure I get everything I can when I order from websites. How is one supposed to learn without asking questions?

    you'll definitely need an inline fuse for your amp, crimp tool would be helpful, butt connectors (depending on the type of connection you want), power wire, wire harness (depending if you want to go the easy way), angle brackets (velco may not cut it), there's probably some other things that i didn't mention.
