after reading some sites, ive come up with this...

going to need a 4 guage amp kit and an 8 guauge amp kit

4 guage for the kicker kx1200.1 amp certified at 1510rms, and jl 300/2 amp gets the 8 guauge......

on the sites, it says up to 1400w you need 4 gauge, over that, use 2 gauge ... but i was thinking that it probably would never get up that high..... but anyway, i would also need 2 sets of 2 channel rca cables...

so is that right?
4 gauge amp kit (for subs/amp)
8 gauge amp kit (for components/amp)
2 sets of 2 channel rca cables

what about power wire ?

anyone let me know ?

again for clarity

alpine 9831
kicker kx1200.1 rated at 1510
jl 300/2 .. probably rated at 320 or so

kicker solo-baric L7 10's dvc 4 ohm
jl xr650-csi component speakers...

get the 4ga kit
then add in a distribution block.
you can run 4ga from battery to amps, then split with the block to each amp.. split down to 8ga if desired and add a couple feet of that to the order for pos and ground for the 300/2
that should do the job
