    Default What do I need for an install?

    Like the title says, could someone guide me on what ill need to complete a fully working install.
    Ive used this kit in my past 2 cars and know it works well as a cheap install but my past 2 cars havnt had steering controls or Displays

    I have:

    - alpine head unit with ipod connector
    - Sub
    - Amp
    - Wiring

    I need:

    - Facia
    - ISO connectors
    - Steering Wheel connector

    Is their anything else?

    Its going to be the very basic set up for now, then when a bit more money comes in i will no doubt want to change the door speakers and add another amp.

    Any guidance will be appreciated

    If your going to do it properly start with decent wiring for your Amp. Its the one place a lot of people skimp on when its the most important part of any build. I remember I used to have 8awg cable from the battery to the boot then upgraded to 4awg and the difference was 10 fold. The amps were getting that much more currant draw that the sound was soo much better. Fit good power cable now and you wont need to do it again.

    Thanks.
    I was going to fit the stuff i have now so i have a bit of bass and then upgrade the system when i have some money saved (it does take me a long time to save anything lol)
    But it does make sense to do it your way, ill hold off till pay day and run better cable through, i can always use my old amp and sub with the new wiring.
