^^ you need the fuse/ fuse holder that connects to the battery... worst thing do is to go to a future shop or best buy and picking up an "amp kit" from them... they charge up the ass for crap... the only thing those types of stores carry are stinger.. which arent bad but you can get alot better for same or cheaper price. I dont know about the GTA area but here in windsor we got a place called factory auto sound.. n you can buy a complete amp kit for 29.99 (8 gauge wiring) i believe its 49.99 for 4 gauge wiring... what i suggest is running a thicker power cable (4 gauge) because the stock on in your car will in most cases be 8 gauge or thinner (difference between is how much power is being supplied to the amp at a time) in that case your new amp may not be at its full power because not enough current is being charged n passed through the wires from the battery.
