Any 800 to 1000 watt wiring kit, available at BestBuy or Circuit City would do you just fine. They should be in the 30 to 40 dollar range.
As far as an installer allowing you to watch? The big box stores for sure wouldn't, but many "mom-n-pop" shops might let you hang out in the install bay, I'd call and ask before you make your appointment.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

Any head unit will work with the subwoofers... Personally, I'd steer a bit clear of the Jensen stuff... For 400 dollars, you could get into an Eclipse and have FAR better sound quality, as well as way better reliability.

I wouldn't use the cap. It really is not needed and can actually have negative effects on the electrical system.

Eclipse Head Units vary in price. Make sure you purchase from an authorized dealer! You could find the model you like from crutchfield or sounddomain and look at the reviews to see what others thought, but it would be better if you purchased them from a brick and mortar store so you have a face to talk to, plus eclipse will replace your Hu if stolen out of your vehicle for a year if installed by an authorized dealer.
