Games JL audio 12W7 prowedge/Kicker zx1000.1 Install

I just purchased a JL 12W7 Prowedge with a Kicker zx1000.1 amp with a Tsunami 2 farad cap, and I was wondering if I would need to do any upgrades to the car. Anyone else with this set-up or similar?

Car: 07 is250 awd w/ navi.

Thanks,
J

I`m thinking of doing a system upgrade to my is 250 how hard was it for them to tie in the subs to your factory system. I have The MarkLevenson system

I haven't installed it yet because I just want to make sure I have everything I need so everything will be done all at once. As far as the wiring the subs to factory system I know will be simple. It will just require the HI/LOW for the RCA's and Feed line.

So far I have:
-4 gauge JL wiring kit w/ RCA wires
-Kicker ZX1000.1 Class D monoblock 1000watts rms amp
-JL Audio Prowedge 12w7
-2 farad Cap

Would I need to upgrade the Big Three? High output alt? Deep cycle battery?

All comments are welcome!

no you will not have to and if i was you i would go batcap or a gell cell bat and that would take care of any prob you may have. capacitors are good but they only supply a quick jollt of juice go to batcap website and look for your self i had one on my old system big deferance. or just a opt bat.

You must listen to rap. Why would you need to ruin a mark levinson system by adding bass ? One day when you get to be my age and cant hear well you can thank that bass ! been there done that...huh did you say something ?

Ok old man... I don't have the ML package and I bought the JL 12W7 Prowedge for SQ. Also, just because I like bass doesn't mean "I must listen to rap". Go back to your car and listen to your country music with no bass and all treble, hater. =)

edit: Just noticed BADIS300 said he has ML system. But still, even the ML system wouldn't have enough bass for me.

Yeah I can't wait until the sub comes. I ordered it through JL Dealer Accommodations program for 65% off, thank god for friends that works at audio shops

Damn, there are a lot of different responses but I still haven't heard a common suggestion yet.
