i dunno exactly what RCAs do but you got a set of black and red out the back of the player to the input of the amp

power wire on one side of vechile..make sure you run the RCAs on the opposite side of the power..

inline fuse on power

good ground

remote wire then should be good to go...

i guess i dont understand the whole wiring thing at different ohms...i understand that ohms is the resistance in the circuit but why would u want more ohms ?wouldnt that take away from the total current going to the sub? whats the difference between the 4 ohm type r and the 2 ohm one?

No you want less ohm's....if you have a type R in your truck you can wire it down to 0.5 ohm's but i dont think alpine amps really supply under 2 ohm's...what speaker did you get the dual voice 4 ohm or the dual voice 2 ohm.....cause thats going to make the difference on how to wire you sub and all.....
