 What am I missing, am I ready?

Almost ready for the trunk install but I feal like I'm missing something. I already have the following: R.F. T112D4 POWER 4 OHM 12" SUB 1200W. R.F. POWER T5002 AMPLIFIER 2-CH AMP. DUAL 12" SLOT PORTED VENTED SUB BOX 3/4" MDF. R.F. 1 Farad Digital Capacitor CPCD10-03. R.F. 4-Gauge Deluxe Complete Amp Power Kit. 4 Sq. Ft R.F Sound Dampening Mat Dead SKin. A Pioneer DEH-P6600 running things with high-pass (50/80/125Hz, -12dB/Oct) and low-pass (50/80/125Hz, -18dB/Oct., +/-12dB) crossovers, 3 RCA pre-outs, built-in MOSFET 50 x 4, 3-band Parametric EQ, Sound Focus EQ (independent front/rear control of bass and treble) and EQ-EX is already in the car. Am I missing anything or do you have any suggestions before I have everything installed?

4 channel amp???? The Pioneer is rated at 22w x 4 rms, if you think that is enough to keep up with your sub? That's all I can think of.

I'm only using the amp to run the subs(bridged). The amp is just what I need for the 12's. What would the benefits of a 4-channel be? The deck has been enough to run the interior speakers so far. It's rated at 50Wx4. Will this install change the performance of my deck to the interior? If so what do I need to keep my deck running the interior before I install all the rest for the trunk?

I know your deck says 50wx4 right on it, but that is peak power. Read the fine print of your owners manual, it is 22wx4 continuous. I like a well balanced system with not tons of bass and I always run amps on my front/rear speakers. Personally I do not know how much bass you like, I just see everyday that people come in and have too much bass and it drowns out their highs. Eventually they buy a 4 channel amp. I am just answering your question as to what else you need. I think eventually you will want to rev up the rest of your speakers, no time like the present.

If your used to your head unit powering your highs, buy a 4 channel to run them and you'll think you died and went to heaven .

You nailed my next project on the head, but this step hurt the bank account. I am planning on upgradeing the interior also, but I just really need some bump in the trunk first. So hardware wise I should be good? I don't have to have a seperate EQ or any other crossovers? How benificial are terminal clamps? I was planning on compenents in the front and 4-ways in the back with a seperate amp for the mids and highs. What do you think?

The mids and highs are still stock so I don't think they can handle a amp. Once I upgrade those, I was planning on a seperate 4 channel amp for those.

If you're going for bass, mighty fine set-up there. Good source unit as well. The only thing that may need altered is the wiring. If you're running lots of power later, the 4 gauge may not be enough. I'm not an expert on it, but something for the others here to take a look at.

All rockford power series amps do recommend using 1awg power and ground,but with this being the smallest power series amp,it will probably be okay,if he does put the 4channel amp in later,the technical correct thing to do would be 1awg power and ground,with a distribution block,but yeah should put the larger wire in now.

Yoda is right . If you plan on running a 4 channel amp for your highs , in the future . You might consider running either 2 guage or 0 guage now . Save yourself from doing it down the road .

Thanks for the advise everyone. I will look into larger wireing, for now and later uses. What are the hottest brand on the market for the full install kit? As you can tell I'm a huge R.F. fan but I do understand they don't lead the way on wireing. What should I look into?

knukonceptz is very good too. Great prices, and the wires are pretty flexible with very solid coatings.
