Thanks for your help. One other question, Iím new to all this but Iíve seen in places where it said I cannot run 0 gauge wire from my battery like in a normal system. I was told I have to have an extra battery, alternator.. etc. This is my first one and Iím new to all of this. Can I run 0 gauge from my battery and everything be fine without upgrading anything.

I'm quite certain that SSL doesn't make any amps that do rated power. That VXF is a power hungry sub so you'll probably want it wired down to 1 ohm for best results. If you are over 1000 watts I recommend a 1/0 gauge run of cable from the battery to the trunk & 1/0 ground cable. That way your amp will get the current it needs now, and you'll be "future-proof" if you want to get a more powerful amp later on. You don't have to have a 2nd battery to run 0 gauge wire, but I'd recommend getting one soon. You'll also need to perform the "big 3 upgrade" to your charging system. Google it or search for big 3 upgrade on youtube. It makes a world of difference in car audio and your amp & subwoofer will thank you.
