the frame was easy, simple measurements, drilling, and assembly with screws. The solder of the LED's was a little tricky but eventually became easy. You just have to make sure to tin your wires and pre tin your LEDs. As for wiring, rapidled has instructions on their website. this kit would work just fine http://www.rapidled.com/servlet/the-59/ ... LED/Detail but I would add 4 more leds and another dimmable driver so you can run whites on one and blues on the other. the dimming controls make it easy to acclimate corals and control your colors for the look you want but you will want a dimming color kit to make this easier. as for heat sinks, thats up to you. I would do 2x 4.25x 9's. You will need a soldering gun to solder the wires and a digital multi meter to tune your drivers as they do not come tuned. You will also need cooling fans to keep the heatsinks cool.
