Installing amp

Hello guy. I had my 8 for about a month now and i have a 2 10's JL with a 2000 watt amp and i wanted to installing them for awhile but i cant seem to find out how to install them since i'm like a super NOOB lol. I see there's lot of post about sub and amp but i dont really understand them. i wanna know how to install my amp so then i can install my sub. i wanna see picture on how to wire things to my amp. i see a post saying i need to get a PAC AOEM-MAZ2 Mazda Add An Amplifier Adapter to install my amp but i'm not sure if it work. If anyone can help me then that would be awesome. :] thank you.

What JL subs do you have? W1v2? W3v3? W6v2?

What is the exact amp you have? JL also? JX1000/1D? A different brand and model?

Until I get that info, there's not much I can help with. I can link you to a way to route the main power wire, but that's about it. With a true 2000W amp, you're going to need 4 gauge wire at least. Here's a quality kit that includes everything you'll need, with exception of a line output converter. The PAC adapter is really unnecessary, regardless if you have the Bose sound system or not. I assume you're not in America since English doesn't seem to be your first language. This is a line output converter and we can buy it at any car audio store. About $25 USD. Just turns speaker wire into an RCA connection. Tap at the rear speakers and you're set.

Its a W3v3 and it's a Alpine MRP M2000 and yes I'm not born in America. I have only been here for a few years so my English isn't so great. I just bought the 4 gauge wire yesterday, so i just need a line output converter now right? Can you like find me one on ebay or something so i can order it? i don't really know any car audio store around here so it would be easier if i can just order online. I see one converter that look kinda like the picture you show me but i don't wanna buy it if its not the right one. Thank you a lot for replying to my question.

Are the subwoofers 2 ohm or 4 ohm? 10w3v3-2? Or 10w3v3-4? If you're not sure, it should say right on the subwoofer speaker connection.

Top item. 2-channel 50W $24.95

You have the Bose system? That's line output converter will work with either, just want to tell you where to connect it...
