You need signal wires from the deck, whether its RCA or the deck wires.

Yeah, run the RCA's down one side and the power on the opposite side.
However, if your not building an audiophile quality system I doubt you would tell much of a difference. Just don't twist them or cross them if you can help it.

Make sure you also have a fuse coming off of the positive side of the battery. This wire should not be more then 12in (1 foot).

when wiring up a subwoofer amp it is not necessary to run the power wire and rca's separate. typically the noise that is generated only is heard on the higher end frequencies.

Just to be on the safe side, I would still add a fuse in line off the terminal. You can't go wrong with fuses...I have one in line off the battery and I have D-Blocks for each one of my amps and then the amps also have fuses.

A sheet of MDF is like $20 at home depot/lowes. If you've got a circular saw it's the cheapest route to go... just build your own.
