Entertainment and Audio Install Questions

Alright, hopefully doing this system soon. Need to make sure I get everything I need before I dive in.

System:
-Kenwood DNX-9990HD
-Polk DXi6500 speakers
-Polk DXi690 speakers
-Polk PA660 amp
-Viper 5704

Accessories/install parts that I have:
-Antenna adapter
-Scosche double din dash kit
-GM Interface replacement

What I know I need/want:
-PAC SWI Steering adapter
-iPod cable
-DEI XPRESSKIT DBALL DATABUS
-DEI 506t glass breaking alarm

If anyone can help me figure out the rest, I'd really appreciate it. I know I need a wiring kit for the amp, just not sure which. So, if someone could get a list of suggested additions or needs on here, I'd be really grateful! Thanks in advance!

Don't forget the anp wiring kit! Kicker has some of the best install kits I have found. They might be a little higher priced than others, but they are VERY much worth the coin. Really high quality.

Kicker ZCK44 (09ZCK44) Complete 4 Gauge Z-Series Amplifier Kit

That amp will need 4 gauge wire. I know this cuz I have the same stuff you have, haha.

Some extra male and female spade terminals would be a good idea. I have a bad habit of mixing up which wire is positive and negative, and I always do my spade terminals where reversing the polarity during installation is possible. I run the wire about where it will be running to get a close length, then give an extra two feet or so for mistakes. You can cut it to the proper length when you get all the wire in its permanent location and terminated at the amp. For the 6x9's Polk was retarded and made the negative terminal on the speaker ridiculously small, so of you can find a package of really narrow spade terminals for that connection it would save you the headache of having to clamp down on the big terminals and hoping it holds.

Thanks very much! Anything else I should need? And where did you mount your amp? PS I wont be doing the install. Uncle knows a guy who does this for a living and will do it cheap. :) Electrical work is for the birds. haha

Hmm...I have my sub amp on the back of my 60 folding seat. Maybe put both on there. IDK.

I mounted my sub amp on my box. You could put yours there, and put the other amp on the seat

In mine I mounted my amp to the trunk floor right behind the seat, all the vibration with it on the seat can possibly mess it up internally over time.

Flipouts double din will work no problem right? I've heard people say it wont cause the trim piece, but I've seen plenty done without hitting.

Anything can be done. The limiting factor is how much money you are willing to spend and how much modification the installer would have to do. And by flip out double din, do you mean it has a single din chassis with a double din screen that retracts and folds out?

No, my bad, like the little kick out out the bottom, I guess. You know how it tilts and slides to put a cd in?

Yea, you're talking about a double din and they work perfect and give it that nice and neat upgraded stock look...Just make sure when you're buyin one if it's not a top brand(pioneer,jvc,kenwood,etc.) to make sure it is an exact fit double din because some of them can be bulky and will require more trimming and might poke out just a hair
