Yes there are kits sold that come with 3 wires and the ring terminals and such. Its the same as buying your own wire and ring terminals.
I have about 50ft of Audio Technix 0 gauge left over that I'm going to do mine with when I get a chance. The only reason I have not yet is because our alternator is such a pain to get to.

I need to look into that. Thanks

Yeah i will shoot you the link to the kit i bought off Amazon if you want it. Like 50 bucks. If it's similar to my wiring kit, it has crimp connectors... I used those in a few places but the solder connections are SO MUCH FUN with heavy wire :)

I suggest going with a solid brand wire. Not just some random 0 gauge.

My X10's came in this morning. These things are monsters! Here is a pic with a sundown sa10 on the left and x10 on the right. The can in the middle is a normal size can for size comparison.

I hooked up my 2 X10's I received this morning. These things sound amazing!
The only thing I need now is more powerrrrr!
The SKAR SK-1500 I have is great for the Sa's but these X's are craving more!
Still even on this limited power they get down!
I can't wait to see how the lows sounds once the subs loosen up a bit(=

I may just buy a second SK-1500 and run the two(=

That voltage(=


Very crappy quick video I made earlier. I still have to make beauty panels and everything but it is sealed off really well from the trunk. This video just doesn't do the subs justice. When I play songs with notes under 30hz they make every body panel of the car looks like its going to blow off.
Stupid Youtube embeded wont work with FF now. Whats that about. Link is below:

What kind of sound will these give me without the use of an amplifier?

I've used infinity before and was very pleased, but I'm not sure how these will sound without an amplifier.

They will sound good, but even better with an amp.

I have never been a big fan of the kappas. They sound pingy to me.
