Icon5 got a sub and need some help

i basically "found" this sub at our old house. we were renting it out to these people and they trashed the place so long story short we evicted them and they left this sub. its a 12" jl audio 12W-12. does anybody have any info on these and what is a complete list of everything i would need to get this thing in my truck? i already have a box in mind so dont worry about that.

http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/woofer_wizard.asp can help u wire the sub in the box you build

http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/rftech/box_wizard.asp can also help u find out the internal air space

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1170289781245 rockford fosgate amp ftw! i got 300.2 channel but that mono would work just fine never had a problem

http://www.ehow.com/how_2247794_wire...paign=yssp_art helps a little bit to wire the amp up but its pretty much easy run power wire to battery making sure to have a correct size fuse within 18 inches from battery... ground wire to ground remote wire to radio... rcas to radio eassy 8 gauge kit should be good for your system

http://mobile.jlaudio.com/pdfs/10_12_15W0_MAN.pdf check that out, and that amp would power it. . 125w for optium performance personally i'd go with a mono block amp, wiring is fine and you cant realli run it with a factory head unit. . .u need an aftermarket one with pre outs

IMHO save up and get good quality stuff. Dual headunits aren't that great, no reason to have a nice sub powered by bad equipment.

thats a good way to spend way more than you would just getting the 'good' stuff to begin with. Not a vital part to driving the truck, save up and get the good stuff the first time, i never spend money on 'planned to be upgraded' parts. not cost effective when buying things new...used/cheap? maybe..
