Amp/Sub Install question

I just purchased a custom Sub box that will fit on the passenger side of the trunk. It comes with a 10" Kicker CVT shallow sub and an Alpine MRP-M450 amp with it. I have a 2014 FRS monogram with the stock BeSpoke head unit. Could someone tell me what all I will need to install this new sub/amp? I am a complete audio newbie. Thanks!

If you simply just want to add in a subwoofer, I think all you should need is an 8-gauge wiring kit, given that the 2014 bespoke unit has RCA outputs in the back, and some speaker wire, if the kit doesn't come with any (mine didn't) to run from the sub to the amp.

I thought the 2014 bespoke don't have RCA cables.

Hmm nvm, so I don't think the 2014 bespoke has RCA outputs in it, so I think you will also need a line output converter, to tap into the speakers:

Here's the wiring kit I'm referring to (power, ground, remote cable, etc):
