Convertible Amp and Sub Replacement Help

I will be replacing the factory BA system amp and sub in my 2013 BA equipped 2SS convertible soon. I've ordered a JL XD700/5 amp and 10" sub and will be getting the Subthump vert box and Fark. My question to those that have done this upgrade is what additional wiring should I buy to be able to complete the installation myself? Also, do I need the Subthump amp install plate (I believe the JL XD700/5 should fit in the factory amp spot)?

I've done a few installs over the years but recently they have been full kit purchases which came with all wiring, hardware, etc. This will be the first time putting it all together myself from several sources. Thanks for the assist.

I'd say yes to the SubThump install plate for the amp. As far as additional wiring, check out Amazon or order directly from KnuKonceptz. I would recommend a 4 channel 4 gauge kit. That should have everything you need.

Best of luck.

Thank you. I'll look into that. I appreciate the quick response.
