So I got a pretty good setup from craigslist, but no manuals or instructions, and I need help setting it up. I own a 2013 Honda Accord Sedan(sport) MT. I got subs, an amp, and a capacitor. I honestly don't know how to hook any of this up, but I was quoted around 120 by bestbuy to install, and I think I can handle it myself. Below are some questions (sorry if they're stupid ones) and the specs on the the subs, amp, and cap. Thanks in advance! Real excited to start upgrading the mediocre factory system.

Questions:

* I know I need a wiring kit, and I'm picking up a brand new one from someone. Any suggestions if they don't pull through?

* The box will fit in my trunk, but i would much rather have this:
(http://tinyurl.com/n5hgb7l). Does anyone have any information on this kind of box or the seller? Their reviews look pretty good, and the reviews I found on the 2013 accord box were good. I'm going to use the kicker box for now, at least until I pull the trigger on this box. Opinions? Suggestions?

* This little fuse-looking thing came with the box, and I have no idea what it is, or how to use it. Anyone know? All I know is that the cover comes off exposing.... something? Haha, shit...(http://s1146.photobucket.com/user/B... Smug/tumblr_m8z0bmj2Ee1qm5bjko5_250.gif.html)

* After this, I plan to switch out the door speakers, and then get tweeters. I listen to a variety of music so I want the highs to be covered. I know I have to get new sail panels too, but i can get that from a honda parts dealer. Any recommendations on what kind of door speakers I should get? Do I need another amp? What kind of tweeters should I get?

* Would upgrading to the upper-tier honda head units make any difference? Unfortunately, this is the only new head unit upgrade option I have, or at least know of.

* uhhh... where do i start...?

Here is a link for amp install

Hook the Power to the battery. There is a spot under the back spare cover you can use for a ground. You will need a line out convertor(LOC) if you don't already have RCAs set up or running the stock head unit. Google it...they are all over.

The "fuse thing" is probably your inline fuse for the power wire on the amp. Usually is installed within the first 1 foot of the power wire coming off the battery.

Remember...google is your friend.

The speaker box you want looks like a regular sub box you can buy at any car audio store with just a trim pc over the front to make it flush.

If you want to run tweeters, just get a set of component speakers of a good brand. You don't HAVE to run an amp to them, but its ideal for optimal performance.

Don't worry about adding the capacitor (you probably aren't putting that much strain on your battery with your idealized setup), find a good set of component speakers that can run off of your head unit or add another amp. Sound deaden the front and rear doors and the trunk. That should be fine for your needs.
