Looks like you got some good stuff there. Heard alot of good things about Beyma, but never heard or ran any. The only thing I would change would be the pre-fab box and go with a custom built box. And lose elmo He is eyeballing the goods.

four channel rca's for a four channnel amp ?
Yep - and another 2 channel set for the sub amp...

When routing wires, keep power and ground wires away from the RCA's to reduce interference/whine issues. Generally not a major problem with good equipment, but worth doing anyway. I ran the RCA's down the side of the tansmission tunnel and ran the power lead through the stock plastic pieces on the right passenger side.

sorry for the noob questions i just wanna get my ducks in order before i hit the audio shop u know they'll charge an arm and a leg for some bogus rca's you'll end up replacing down the road ........so let me get this straight

1) 4 channel rca's for the 4 channel amp
2) 2 channel rca's for the bxi 2006d mono amp

what about from the head unit to the equalizer what type of rca's do i need for that ...

and do most people run an EQ and a Crossover or either or ?

If you want to run the EQ you will need twice as many rca's. A 4channel and 2channel into the EQ and the same coming out. How long they need to be will Depend on where you mount the EQ. I personally don't run an outboard EQ, but that is because my deck has a 13 band eq in it so there is no need for one.

I havent seen your EQ before is it in-dash? I have a memphis EQP4 and I just run my RCAs to the amps from there then get some short 1' RCAs to run from Deck-EQ. I agree with Kapone as far as the box going custom-If you could spare the room I'd ditch the Cap and do a Blue top or yellow top in the trunk. Dont forget to upgrade your Big 4 with zero guage and if you can in the future move up on your alternator Hifonics take juice

I just looked up your EQ and you only need 1 2 channel RCA from the decks non fading output to the EQ's input. Then the 4 channel and 2 channel RCA's out to amps.
