Just need some advice for the stuff i already have

Im wanting to make a decent system. I am currently in college without much money. Just wondering what your input would be and what i should do with the stuff i already have. Im not sure if they will fit in my 2011 DC SPORT non JBL. This whole setup i had previously in a 1997 S10 regular cab. I won't mind spending too much money. Id like to stay in the budget of $500. I have a dash kit, and wiring harness on the way from crutchfield. Thanks guys!!

Heres the list of what I have:
i have put links under each

Head Unit:
Alpine CDA-9886

Subwoofer:
JL Audio 10" w1v2 in a JL box

Amp:

I was thinking of buying another 10w1, and a dual 10" box. And hopefully using my old amp.

You are saying you were unhappy with this setup in your S10?

No no. lol i thought it was pretty loud lol. I actually got all of it for free. My friend's dad owns a local car audio shop. but i am using my tacoma wary more now, and the s10 is sort of a work truck between my dad and I.

Its just the way when i put this system in the s10, i had absolutely no idea what i was doing. the 4' speakers were rattling because they weren't bolted down, and were just laying there. The 6.5" speakers were just screwed in with no baffles. And the amp's bolt that screws down the power wire is currently stripped, so i hot glued the power wire on it as a fix. I was only 15 when i did all this.

Assuming everything is working correctly (you weren't too clear on that) why wouldn't you just get a new sub box made for the tacoma and use what you already have? You could use a good chunk of your budget just getting a good box, amp rack and the required parts to do the install correctly. Save the rest.
