I'm trying to build a budget system for my Equinox, I have no knowledge of what I am doing, any and all feedback is greatly appreciated. I'm a little gun shy, and not willing to pull the trigger on my purchase. I've included everything I can think of without the wiring. I'll be purchasing that through crutchfield due to the discounts I would be getting.

I'm just trying to figure out where money is being wasted, or not used enough, and if everything will work together with better than average results.
I'm ordering all of my parts for my first setup and my sub i ordered turned out to be on backorder so I'm suppose to substitute it. I ordered a Kicker VCVR122 enclosed sub. I have a Kicker ZX500.1 Amp coming and I need to find a enclosed sub to match it. I'm looking for a single 12" sub that would match the RMS of the amp.
Here are the amp specs

I would prefer a Kicker sub but whatever works best is fine with me.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Alright, so I recently got a Pioneer TS-W301R 12" 800w peak and 150w RMS.
I will be powering this sub with a dodgy Powervox 1400 Watt 2 channel 70 RMS per channel, and i will be bridging it. And my head unit is a JVC KDR206.
Now my questions are:
Will it work?
What type of wiring kit will i need?
Where could I get a wiring kit for it cheap as possible?
This is my first time dealing with any type of car audio systems and I am in need of some help. I am trying to put a new head unit in my car along with 2 subs. I am wondering what all I will need and if the components I have picked out are good and will work together. I have a budget of $1000. I have a list of all the components that I have picked out for the whole system. Add an "h" to the beginning of each link.
