stereo system problems

i have an 08 rubi with the mygig option, and i just bought an amp and two subs, i talked to the guy at the local stereo shop and he said they have still not completely figured out the jk rubicons when it comes to installing subs and amps has anyone done this? and what are the problems that we are facing? i know this is an offroad upgrade but im in highschool i wanna bump!

if the guy cant figure it out then go somewhere else, he has no idea what hes doin. its really easy esp if you already have a factory sub. if you do you can use a line out converter (makes speaker wires into rca's) at the sub or at the factory amp under the steering wheel. use the left cig lighter for switched power and run a wire from the battery, its pretty easy

ok you slightly confused me there...ill go into detail (if it matters) i have two fosgate p3 12's and a profile ap2000 amp 2000watts max and 480x2 rms (at 2 ohms) i bought all of it off of crutchfield, i install everyones subs at my highschool and get paid to do it so i know the basics perfectly but its a month old care and 750$ system so i was gonna get this guy to do it...the amp came with a line out converter but im not quite sure how to use it and you confused me...does the mygig touch screen nav have rca's? if so wouldnt it be extremely easy to bypass the factory amp...if it has rcas i could just go the basic wiring scheme...power inline fuse remote rca's ground and sub wires? i cant understand the way you explained...sorry for the long post

you can hook up the line out coverter to the wires that are at the factory sub (easiest) or at the factory amp (same wires) you will hook up the remote turn on to the power wire on the left(drivers) cig lighter port(its switched with ign/radio and you know where the power /fuse go.

ok i installed them and they sound great but it takes a while for the amp to turn off like i shut off the jeep and open the door and close it then it takes about thirty or more seconds to cut off

what did you hook up the turn on wire to? does the amp have a "auto on" feature if so and its on thats why it takes a bit
