speakers, sub, box, connectors, and wire.
what amps specifically were you given? an 800 watt fosgate and an 800 watt crunch are not the same.

Im not sure which one is which but ima take a guess and say its crunch just bcuz the amp ihave seems cheap like in the video and it doesnt say fosgate.. seems like the amp iwas given is a knock off for sonys xplode..

it should say a brand on it somewhere. there are a bunch of brands out there. and it is a spectrum of how close they are to rated. not really a hard line good amp bad amp type thing. or post a picture of it. that will help.

your factory stereo is probably better. not trying to be rude or anything just honest.

Sony Xplode 800 watt? I wouldn't use sony xplode personally but I know alot of people that do. I would also look up the specs for the subwoofer you have. Most people just buy a speaker box at the store but if you want the best sound/performance out of your sub it's best to build a box or have one built to the required specs of the subwoofer. Each one is different and requires a certain volume inside the speaker enclosure, also differs depending if you go sealed or ported.
