Hey guys, I've just purchased a number of parts and don't have anything to wire them up with. Looking for some recommendations.

I have a Pioneer HU, DEH-P800PRS, and I just ordered the Sundown SAX-100.4D and after hearing them, the Pioneer TS-C720PRS components. I'll run the speakers active alone for now, but I'll eventually add a sub with a class D amp--haven't decided on what. So 400WRMS from a class A/B and later I expect another ~600WRMS from a class D. I'd like to just run everything all at once while I have the car torn apart.

I found Monster RCAs on the classifieds, but I still need a lot of wiring. I don't want to pay a ton for it, but I don't want to bring in noise or corrosion issues by cheaping out--I'll gladly spend just enough to get rid of those problems.

Here's what I think I need:

Main power wire - 2 gauge, 1/0 would be fine, est. 15'-18'
Distribution block to amp power wire - 4 gauge, est 3'
Ground wire - Probably 4 gauge, est 3'-6'
Speaker wire - 14-16 ga, prefer braided, probably 4x ~15'

Battery connection block (something that wont corrode the battery to hell)
Fuse block & fuse
Distribution block (for now just to drop the power wire to manageable size)

3/4" thick MDF spacer (possibly 1")

I found really quickly there is quite a range out there: Audiopipe will sell kits that are dirt cheap and look it, and JL seems much higher end but costs quite a bit more. I'm trying to figure out what's worth the money.

What would you recommend getting, and where would you recommend getting it?

be advised that their klmx wire is copper clad aluminum. which doesn't have quite the currant capacity as normal copper. ie, go a little over kill on size if you go that route.

their Kolossus fleks Kable is NICE. same OEM as the high end kicker and PG cable.
