I'm new to all this, and recently purchased a Kicker CompR Dual 12" Dual-Voice-Coil 2-Ohm Subwoofers (Black Enclosure) and got the 2400w Kicker amp to go along with it. I heard this specific pair could handle up to 2000 watts, so if I understand this properly, applying more than 2000 will probably blow my subs? I just want to make sure what would and would not blow them. Not ready to pay another few hundred for more.

I was told I would need the Kicker - Z-Series 2-Channel Amplifier Installation Kit to go with it all. I was planning on going back to purchase that kit, a Pioneer In-Dash CD Receiver (Black), and a kit for that. Will that be all I need to complete the process or are there other tools or something else I need to pick up?

We are speaking of the same wires, the kicker CK4 is the 149.99 that we carry in stores. We also carry the PKD1 1/0 AWG for 299.99 from kicker that would suit you better should you ever want to go more powerful. Granted your setup is one of the loudest but cleanest package you could purchase, it is only fitting to tell you about the larger wire should you want more out of the sound.
I personally love the setup that you have purchased and also the suggested amp kit that you posted, we are speaking about the same wires in that first link I believe. These wires would be enough to run the current setup that it sounds like you have. The pioneer head unit would eliminate the need for the LOC, and you will definately need tools to complete the installation. If you have never completed an amplifier installation, I would highly recommend scheduling an appointment with a Geek Squad Autotech.
Since we provide the service for purchase in-store and online, I unfortunately will be unable to provide you any further assistance to installation, but should you need further guidance on the products to purchase I would be more than happy to be of assistance. Thank you for the follow ups and have a good new year ahead!

You said that the PKD1 1/0 AWG would give "more out of the sound" compared to the other wire. What did you mean by "more out of the sound?" I still think I'll choose the smaller wire (mainly for cost reasons), but if I get that rather than the larger wire, will I be missing out on more so called, "umpf"?

No no, should you want to upgrade your sound system then the 1/0 guage would be necessary to handle the more power of your setup. when you upgrade you would get more sound. Sorry if that confused you, but if you see yourself wanting to go bigger in the near future or with this vehicle you would be better to run the 1/0 now than later. Best of luck!
