I find it funny this guy needs help and is writing one sentence lines with bearly any info, expecting us to know what he did.

Just because you 'wired' new deck, doesn't mean you did it right.
For us to provide you with any help you'd need to let us know how you wired the deck, which wire to which wire. You probably did something wrong and, as good as I am i can't read your mind.

Once you have a deck working, you can proceed to wiring up the amp/sub. Which is easy (for ppl who know what they are doing).

Run RCAs and Remote trigger from deck to trunk (assuming thats where you are mounting the amp)
Run Power and Ground for the Amp
Run speaker wires from the amp to sub.

Hook everything up and your good to go.

If you don't understand that, then maybe you should just take it to a car audio shop.
For me the hardest part is running the wires.

Other thing is have you calculated what you REALLY need instead of just installing the BIG guage you can find ?!?!??! How big of an alternator upgrade are you doing........... sounds like you read Yuli's thread on CCA !!
I got a 140 amp alternator, and my system is only going to be 1 type x powered by a pdx 1.1000 and type r components also powered by a 75 rms x 4 amp....

So do you think i would need a bigger Alternator? I dont always blast my music, and im only going to play it while the car is started oh i also have a dry cell suv battery, that i took off my uncles lincoln Navigator and that battery is atleast 140 amp.
