Default Need some help from someone experienced with car audio.

I came here a few days wondering what to get. I've decided on an AQ HDC3 15'' Sub with the AQ 1200D. Basically, I need to know what all I need. As of right now, on my list, I have...

AQ HDC3 15'' Subwoofer
AQ 1200D Amp
Box from Sly
4 Gauge Wiring Kit, found here - Copper Clad Aluminum

Is there I NEED, or anything that I should pick up? I really want the setup to be painless, so just recommend away.

Also (in case you didn't know) its ideal to keep your ground within 3 feet of the amp, so cut it down about 2 feet!
