Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

then you will have a BLK/ LT. green wire from the amp that goes to the 6X9 sub that is your (-)

you will have a DK. blu/ white wire from the amp that goes to the 6X9 sub that is your (+)

Yup looks good

if you want 12'* then you can just get a simple sealed box. or if you want a custom one just go out and measure the trunk and build hte box accordiangly

if your amp has speaker level inputs you should just be able to tap into them and use those as inputs.

it does, well, did... i lost the harnes that came with it for speaker level connection. This is the 3rd vehicle that i've put this system in and the first that didn't have an aftermarket HU. RCA is really my only hope as of now.
