    You are going to need to do A LOT of research on your own, as no one is going to want to walk you through the whole progress. The basics (with pictures) are in a "sticky" at the top of the A/V forum.

    The really basics. You will need to buy a wiring kit of the correct gauge depending on the power of your amp, something to carry signal from your H/U to the amp, and speaker wire.

    If that is confusing, you are probably better off paying someone to install it for you. Not to be rude, but this isn't rocket science, it just takes research and attention to detail. If you are unwilling to do the research it may be an incredibly frustrating process for you.

    Ill go a little further.

    Amp wiring kit - Power wire, with fuse, to the (+) on the amp
    Ground wire to chassis of truck to the (-) terminal
    Speaker wire from amp output to sub terminal on the sub box.

    If using stock deck:
    Line out converter, wired to the speaker outputs, with an RCA cable going to the amp.
    Remote wire should be part of this, or you will have to tap a fuse that is live with ignition

    Or an amp with speaker level inputs

    If using aftermarket deck:
    RCA from the back of the unit to the amp.

    Remote wire using the harness on the deck.


    If any of this is confusing, see the above post, last paragraph.
