Re: DON'T KNOW WHAT WIRING KIT TO USE FOR 400WATT 4...
Well i will let you know now that 400 watts running into two subs like that will never match. You will want to run only one sub or get a bigger amp. But for that amp a standard 6 gauge power wire will be sufficient to run it. The ground wire about 4 gauge is good.

i have a pioneer AVH-P6300BT but im not sure if i have i connected correctly with my amp. my speakers just dont seem to be pushing the power i know they can. so for starters which wire is the remote wire? i have the RCA's connected to the one that is labeled"Subwoofer output" is this correct? The wiring diagram also talks about connecting to the violet and violet/black wires for the subwoofers whats this for?
For this you really need to contact Jensen directly and order one from them. I have the link set to your unit @ Jensen's website http://mobile.jensen.com/search/?sku=VM9410 You don't want to take a chance with some cheap aftermarket cord with a $650usd deck.
you need rca cables, an amp kit from your local audio shop(or walmart). make sure you know which wire is the remote from your radio as it will need to connect to the remote on your amp. most radios have the wiring diagram on top of the radio. Ground(black)/Power(from battery) and remote(typically blue from stereo.
You set the factory radio to a set level, then use the volume on the EQ for everyday adjustments.
I believe your problem lies in the amplification.
Your BOSE amplifier was made to run a 4 channel 8ohm stero load.
Low powered - high in sound quality.
You have swapped the factory 8 ohm speakers (15W) for 4 ohm power hungry ones.
Now the amplifier is working harder to produce the same output.
You would be best served eliminating the factory amplifier and getting 1 good 4 or 5 channel amp to power your speakers.
a 4 channel amplifier could be used stereo (left and right) on channels 1 and 2, (2ohm stereo load)
and bridge channels 3 and 4 for your subwoofer.
For a true surround sound - a 5 channel amplifier could run each speaker individually, and the 5th channel is reserved for the subwoofer.
a small dedicated 75wx4 channel amplifier with built in crossover, and level gain controls - would blow your socks off. It is 200x better than the factory 12Watt amplifier. Your ears will love you for it :D

This one Wire should be for the +. Try connecting the + to the Head Unit and - to a Common Ground. At the Worst, You will Blow the Amp Fuse if not Correct. The Lead from the Head Unit is Only an Off and On from the Ignition. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
Remote wire from Jensen is blue or blue/white. Use Blu/white if there is one. . RCA's, for subs, use the rear if no subwoofer pre-outs are available. If unit has sub pre-uts, use them as the head ubit (stereo) would have a level that can be raised or lowered thus giving you more control over the input to the sub amp.
