Hello, I'm more of a car audio guy but I'm wanting a setup in my room to jam to. I'm thinking of adding two speakers with a 10" subwoofer. I don't have much experience at all wiring speakers/tweeters from anything but a car battery. I'm set on the woofer that I want because I wouldn't consider myself new to subwoofers... Just wiring in my house.

I want to wire all three components to an iPod dock where I can plug my iPhone into, although I'm not sure how that's going to work out. I'll be running a JL Audio 300RMS sub powered by an Alpine 500W Amp. However I need help picking out the needed wires, iPhone dock, and two "okay" quality shelf speakers. I'd like the speakers and dock to be less than $100 in all. I've been looking at this dock, which seems to have RCA outputs; would it work with my setup?

http://www.amazon.com/PURE-i-20-30-Pin-iPhone-Speaker/dp/B0049MOK92/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1348983851&sr=1-3&keywords=transport+docking+station+ipod

So if anyone could help me out here that'd be great, I'll also be needing help with the wiring from the dock to the speakers.

Thanks to everyone helping out,
Justin Watts

Also, can I power my speakers through my amplifier using speaker wire?

I like the precision of the statement, considering the opening post.
