Hey Danny, 300W is not much when it comes to subs. You'll use that up in a heart beat. I'd sell all of them, especially the crap Sony amp(don't ever support them).
15" sub is a good start if you want powerful sounds. As for the alternator, it'll depend on your current one in your car. Unless you actually buy an amp that's 500W rms or higher, you can get by without an alternator upgrade.
If you are going with a higher power amps, then invest on a HO alternator (no it's not a female alternator) that's around 150A or more. Don't forget about the Capacitor. You'll need it to get tight smooth bass.

I'd atleast get a 130 amp alternator.

I just bought a 350z 2003 without the upgrade sound system. I also bought a complete Bose sound system including the head unit, the ampli, the speaker etc and and all the connections. The thing is I don't have the wiring neither the wiring diagram. Few people told me that I'll never be able to do something out of it. Can somebody help?
