Once you have selected your amp, you need to select a car audio amplifier kits to wire it into your vehicle. The amp kit includes power and ground wire, a fuse, remote turn on wire, RCAs, speaker wire, and in some cases a few extras or a few of these components missing depending on the kit you get.
Car audio amplifier installation kits, wiring kits, or amp kits, usually include all or most of the things you need to install your amp, but you don’t need the full kit if you already have most of what you need; you can go buy whatever you’re missing separately. It’s usually a lot cheaper to get a kit if starting from nothing. Also make sure the kit you buy includes what you need. For example: most kits only come with one set of RCAs. This is fine for a sub installation, but you will need another pair if you plan on doing 4 speakers on a 4 channel amp.
