Will this setup work for my 2000 TJ?

I recently purchased my first Jeep, a 2000 Wrangler TJ and am looking to upgrade the sound. I am a college student so I am on a tight budget, and frankly know NOTHING about wiring something like this.


The components I was looking to install were:

Pioneer DEH-4400HD CD Receiver with Dot Matrix LCD Display & HD Radio

Pioneer TS-SWX310 Shallow Series Preloaded 12" Sub Enclosure with 1 TS-SW301 Subwoofer
or
Pioneer TS-SWX251 Shallow Series Preloaded 10 Sub Enclosure with TS-SWX251 Subwoofer

Pioneer GM-6500F 760W Max, 4-Channel GM Series Car Amplifier however, I do not know if this amp is sufficient.

Pioneer TS-A4674R 4" x 6" 3-Way A-Series Coaxial Car Speakers

Pioneer TS-A1374R 600W, 5-1/4" 3-Way A-Series Coaxial Car Audio Speakers


Could anyone assist me with how I would wire this and if this amp will work? I dont understand how to wire all of the different components to the amp. What do ohms have to do with the equation? If not adequate, what would be the correct amp for a comparable price?

Also could you advise on what other things I would need such as a wiring kit or other accessories, again I have no idea what I am doing, but I would like to do it myself to be cost efficient.

looks good but i would put 5-1/4's in the dash and 6's in the sound bar. other than that it looks good

you will need a harness and dash kit also along with an amp kit for the sub.

personally i would look at kicker for the speakers sub and amp but that's just me

Does kicker have a better reputation? I found a good deal on the pioneer ones. Do the coaxial speakers get hooked to the amp as well? and is a 4 channel amp enough?

Sorry for all the questions, again I'm new at this. but how do I know what watt amp I need if I am hooking both sets of speakers and the sub to it?

Or would I need two separate amps, one for my sub and one for my speakers

You will want a Monoblock amp for the sub and a 4 channel amp for the speakers. But I run my 5 1/4" Kicker dash speakers and stock pod speakers straight off the head unit as loud as the hu will go with almost no distortion. And I mean loud.

So would the head unit i posted above have enough power to run the pioneer dash and soundbar speakers if I wired them directly?

Most likely yes. But an amp would be a nice upgrade in clarity and loudness. But mine has done well enough I haven't seen the need to add an amp yet.

And would the stock wiring be good enough for the speakers or would I want to rerun wire? Again, I'm sorry if these are stupid questions

Since you aren't amplifying, the stock wire is fine.

I changed the stock speakers out with Sony explode's from Walmart of all places. Very inexpensive and they sound great. Then I added a clarion head unit and two 10" subs with kicker amp. I bought the head unit install kit and wiring harness from amazon both for the amp and to connect the stereo to the factory harness. The sound is awesome and it didn't cost too much. You can always spend more, but I figured I'm in a jeep with a soft top how much do I want to spend. The wiring was easy following directions.

I would run Pioneer before Sony any day. I consider Sony car audio bottom of the barrell. I got my Kickers on sale pretty cheap from Sonic electronics. My subs and amp are the costly part of my setup. 2 JL Audio 10-W3V3-4 subs and a JL Audio XD600/1 monoblock amp.

And just to reiterate (sp?), go 5 1/4" in the dash with a pair of Nalin Mfg adapter plates. Way better sound quality than ovals.

Final question, I decided to go with this box
http://www.hifisoundconnection.com/S...id/0/SFV/30046
using two Pioneer TS-W254R 10" Single 4 ohm subs wired in parallel on a Kenwood KAC-8105D 1-Channel 1000 watts Class D Monoblock amp. What amp kit will I need to wire all of this. As in what gauge. Could someone recommend one?

1000w amp?! You don't need that much power to run a single sub. I have 1 600w amp powering 2 10" subs.
