lol the good stuff does underrate but most new companies dont lol some are even infamous for ratings at irrational voltages such as 1000 watts....at 14.9 volts. the good stuff rates at 12. But ask anyone who dealt autotek before they were bought out by maxsonics they were very underated were as now like all maxsonnics products there overated and not so reliable

Memphis has the power reference series (PR) which is great for the money. They are $99 for the 10in which would go great with your 300 watt amp. Make sure you get a ported box and not an enclosed.

what size are the fuses on the amp i would probably use 4 gauge to be on the safe side anything bigger would be overkill.

you would be safe with 8 gauge but i still recommend 4 gauge for a lil over kill and in case you want to upgrade later on.

i agree ive used a lot of different install kits scosche pre crimping the battery lug and fuse holder makes the job easy. My only complaint is some kits have a smaller gauge ground cable than the battery cable. Even though it would be suitable most manufacturers recommend a same gauge ground. As far as the availability of running to the store and getting it without the local stereo shop crazy mark up you cant beat it.
