    Well it kind of depends on how willing you are to take your car apart. As far as the wiring is concerned it's pretty simple,. and the amplifier should have instructions on how to do it. It basically consists of power ground remote and rca, which are very simple to do. . Other then that. I suppose the most complex part of it all is running the power wire through the firewall.

    its very very simple, first, know where oyu are going to run your power wire, and make sure it is no where near your rca wires, which youll also be running. Youll have to run a remote lead. from deck to the amp. then youll havve to make a ground which should usually not be over 3 ft long. and then for bridging the amp, connect left positive and right negetive.
