amp/sub purchased - now what?

Ive got the BA system and am going to replace the amp and add a sub. I bought a new amp (Jl Audio 900/5) and sub (JL 10w3). Im going to pick up the fark kit when they become available and the camaro box from subthump and some sound deadner.

What else do I need to finish this process? Ive seen amp kits sold online but not sure what all is in them and if I need to pick one up. Thanks

You need need a sub enclosure, an amp wiring kit, and someplace to mount the amp. I too have the HD900/5. While small, I don't think it can exactly fit in the factory amp location and still leave room for wires.

I went with the subthump amp mount (left side install), Knu-Konceptz 4-ga 4-ch amp install kit. Even with this kit, you will need more ground wire, if you want to use the battery as your ground, and some wire for your sub. Also the fuse is too big, I used this fuse.

I used the Audio Integrations enclosure. But more people seem to go with the Subthump Stealth Enclosure.

While I'm sure you could force it to fit on in the factory location, I don't think it's ideal. If you want all the materials ready for your install just check out the specs below. The HD900/5 is .24"x.54" too big. This is how mine looks.

swap the stock battery for an Optima Yellow top while you're at it...
