Please double check my stereo plans

I'm planning on upgrading the stereo in my '04 Rubicon however have never done a car stereo before. Below are items I either currently have or should be arriving over the next few days. I'm hoping y'all could review and point out concerns or help identify any missing elements prior to starting the project next week.

Deck: Kenwood KDC-MP345U
  • Have ordered a faceplate kit and wiring harness
Dash: Polk db5251 package with passive crossover
  • 5 1/4" mid's
  • 1" tweets
  • Ordered the Nalin dash and tweeter mounts
Sound bar: Polk db521
  • 5 1/4" mids with tweets
Amp: Alpine MRP-F300 4 channel, 50 watts RMS for the dash and sound bar speakers

Sub: Ordered an Infinity Basslink, 10" powered sub

Thanks for the help / input

you will need to get a wire kit to power the amps. i suggest getting this wire kit for the amp, knu konceptz is one of the top brands of car audio wire.

and you will need one for the basslink too, this will work

Need an amp wiring kit and sound deadening material. Sounds like you're on the right track. I never went the route of a powered sub. Always got the amp and sub that I wanted, then paired them together. It's all about what you want though. Good luck.

The basslink is the only powered sub i would ever suggest getting.

Agreed on the quality of the Knu Konceptz kit, it's half the price on Amazon though.
