Default System Setup

So i got my 350 Watts 4-ohm Amp and my Subwoofer. I have had them for a long time and i thought that i need to hook them up. If someone has the Time, could u give me simple step by step instructions on how to do this. Its a mono amp and one 12 in Boxed Cerwin Vega Subwoofer.
Thanks so much :)

I Don't have Any Wires yet, I know that I'm going to need them. Also, I have heard that you can Pick up an Amp kit at Walmart, and thats all I need. I Already have a Head Unit Up front and some Pioneer Speakers by the Rear Seats. BTW It is a 1995 Honda Civic Coupe. Thanks for the Help...

a pair of 2ch RCA wires goes from the headunit to the amp.

power wire goes from battery to amp, fuse near battery
ground wire goes from amp to chassis
turn-on wire from headunit to amp

+ on amp to + on sub
- on amp to - on sub

that basically covers it. if you dont understand something, or want more detail, just post.

8 gauge is enough for now. 4 gauge if you plan on upgrading anytime in the future. naturally, 4 gauge is more expensive.
