its not bad

it not 100% true 4ga wire but it gets the job done, it says it comes with a agu fuse but mine actually came with a mini anl fuse.. so i bought extra fuses for nothing...but overall a great kit.

VS
Cheap. Misleading product.

I bought this because it was cheap so I was not expecting a lot. Just for a little 50x4 MB Quart amp. This is not a 4 gauge kit at all. Honestly it is a 7 gauge kit. The insulation is very thick making the small wire look much larger until you look at it in a cross view. It is awkward because if you use the terminals that come with the kit they are for a 4 gauge kit and really do not work with the small wire. And it is just slightly to large for 8 gauge terminals.

Overall it's a sick kit. The power/ground are 4awg, the rca's work great, fuse / fuse holder is great, the speaker wire was not sufficient for my application. Amp required min. 12 gauge and the speaker wire in this is a small 16 gauge.

The wires are actually pretty good. The only problem I have is the RCA wires. They are pretty cheap looking and I recommend you crimp the ends a little before u install them, they tend to unplug from the amp. All in all good wiring for the price.

Not much to review, It works fine. The only issue is that the power cable doesn't fit into the fuse holder. The fuse glass and holder plastic actually cracked when trying to close it. I'm sure I'll have to replace them soon. Other then that, it's good enough to power my amp with no issues. Yes, I would recommend it to others, just be careful when connecting the fuse holder and power wire. Don't use force!

I originally bought and 8 gauge cuz that's what my amp called for, it was a joke so I returned it and got this 4. Easy return/ exchange. Sounds like it happens a lot...
I think these kits are measured on the outside including plastic diameter not the inside wire.

Anyways buy the next size down from what you need. Kit came with lots of little parts to make the install ez. Would buy again for a 200-400 watt amp

If your looking for an amp install kit with all of the necessities that doesn't cost and arm and a leg this is it. The kit came with everything needed to get power to my amp the length was perfect for a extended cab pickup. The RCA's lack a little but I just used these single channel RCA's to run my sub amp and I bought some Streetwire 4 ch RCA's for the 4 ch amp and it's turned out great. I've always had good luck with Install Bay products!!! I would recommend to any one in search of a good Amp Install Kit!!!

its a great kit for the price. I bought it once for a buddys Suby and then for my father in laws econoline van. never had a problem with either. sonic can be slow at shipping. but if on a budget this kit kicks butt for the price....not much online can compare for a 4 gauge and price. never a problem with feed back or crappy rca. might have to get a few better connectors but hey its a given. anyways great kit. also great for a basic systems. I wouldn't run more then 100 amps of power max.

I bought this for an 1100 watt amp and it provides plenty of power for it, this wire is closer to a 4 gauge than others. Flexible wires but pretty small speaker wire, I'd recommend new speaker wire for subs. The fuse came apart when installing the fuse holder but those are cheap. I've recently bought this again for another amp and works perfect again.

The wire size was adequate for my first amplifier install, and it works great. I do have a problem with the RCA cable that is included though, as it gives a high pitch sort of a buzz at all times; the one included with my BOSS amp kit (surprisingly) doesn't buzz at all. The speaker wire is OK, but pretty thin.

Overall I recommend this kit, but maybe get a new RCA if yours buzzes like mine.

This kit isn't too bad it does the job. The fuse holder seems a little bit cheap on the plastic material but it works. The power cable held up to my abuse when I ran it through my tight space trims in my vehicle and I had to really pull them hard to get through. The RCA cable is a bit thin but I used it for my subs anyways so no problems there.

I bought this because I didnt want to spend the money at the chain electronic stores that were selling these kits. The speaker wire felt sort of stiff but I didn't use it anyways. The power and ground were pretty thick and flexable. The rca cable went bad on me in about a month and a half so I'm going to buy some more expensive ones soon. Like mentioned before there is not enough connectors.

This is a great kit for systems under 2000 watts but any more you have a fire hazard and need to upgrade. The only con about this kit is that the fuse block is week and when I got my kit the fuse was busted so I bad to replace that fuse with a new one and I was missing a joining bolt so if you get this kit your best bet is to go get a different fuse block scosch has a fuse block that is far more durable.

I have had ok luck with the kit. The connectors for the big power wire and ground kind of suck to crimp and I've had a little bit of the copper strands come apart at the connections but I'm not sure if thats my fault or not. Im not an expert installer but i did take electrical in college so I'm not doing too much wrong.

The wire is not really 4 gauge its more like inbetween 6 and 4 gauge, but its good for hooking up an amp for up to about 1500 rms. Good little kit that comes with everything needed but a little heads up, it could have been a fluke with mine but the agu fuse that came with the fuse holder fell apart. literally the glass, fuse element, and end caps all seperated. Anyways its a good kit and would probably buy it again.

Oh boy where to start, the RCAs are super cheap non twisted and I don't recommend them they have a tendency to induce noise into the system. The 4 gauge wire is more like a 5 gauge. The speaker wire is a joke as well. The only thing good about this is the fuse holder and the connectors. This is good for someone who is just starting out with a system, otherwise I recommend a kit of higher quality such as Kicker, Rockford Fosgate, or even Monster wire.

Pros/Cons: All and all great wire and kit but this is not true 4 gauge but is very close. i have not had any problems with my system and my local audio shop only carrys this. this is great for the money. i have the 4 and 8 gauge kits. I recommend these but stay away from 2 and 0. Brands that are true are Kicker, Monster, and Street Wire. Stay away from Absolute. Tsunami i bought a 4 gauge ground wire and thats how i found out that its not true 4 gauge so i recommend these.

For the price you will not find any thing better. The kit comes with long enough, and big enough wires. As for electrical noise and static I have not experienced any.

Everything you would need in a wiring kit. Only downside is the ground and power connectors were too small for the battery post and ground point, had to go and find larger size (which were difficult to find)

Bought the Installbay AK4, pretty decent pricing although its wire is very brittle and falls apart when splicing it so be careful. Also remember your going to need a crimping tool so look for one before getting too excited. Overall good product, no problems encountered

I have purchase this kit 2 times once for my subwoofer and amp setup and the second time for my speaker and amp setup. Only problems I have are that this kit is not sufficient enough for SUV owners there needs to be around 20 ft or more of amp wire.

Pro
- Amp wire and speaker wire very flexible
- Reliable kit
- Has 25ft of speaker wire even though i need like 60ft
- Zero issues with my system cutting in and out due to wire quality

Cons
- I ran out of speaker and amp wire cause I have a Cherokee XJ
- The Hitron amp wire i bought seemed to be a tad bit thicker in leading me to think this may be a little less than true 4gauge.

i got this kit for GMC Sierra, i have a kicker comp to it, going to a dual amp, i didn't want to much power, but this kit can handle about 700 watts, the RCA's are OK, and my truck does seem to be electrically stable, everything fit well, the terminals sucked though, it wasn't a true 4 gauge but for what i paid for it i was impressed... liked it, if you are on budget go for it!!

This amp kit is decent, it does the job for the money paid. Only complaints would be that the speaker wire is very cheap and does not hold up very good. It rips easily. I have it powering an 800 watt mono block amp...For the money it does the job.

this is not a 4 gauge wire this is good for a 400 watts amp. this wire would run hot if you connect to a 800 watts or more.
good feature is the kit is complete and wire is flexible.

Not a professional in the car audio area but from what i do know these are great at least first time buyer wires. This kit comes with everything you need and the speaker wire is a bonus plus since its 25ft!. I used all 17ft of the power wire through out my ford ranger, very flexible too. Ground wire is a little to short but some say 3ft is about all you need to be safe. Good set of RCA cables too. Overall if your on a budget like i was then id go with this other than that if your looking for cheap stuff dont look for real real quality like this kit has without spending a little bit more than someones range of cheap 20$ wiring.

I used this kit to do my first install ever on my 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It did great, I installed a Autotek 1000 street amp with 2 12" memphis subs. Kit had everything I needed to do the install and at a great price !!! The only thing I can recommend is to go to your local audio shop and get about a foot long piece of smaller power wire to downsize your ground wire or you will be fighting with it for a long while. (4 gauge is a little big to fit the little screw attachment on the amp)

Short and sweet: Great kit, has everything most people need.

Pros: All pieces seem to be high quality.

Cons: Had to go buy a couple terminals because the ones in the kit weren't big enough to fit the bolts / connectors I have in my vehicle.

This kit is a very good choice fo rsomeone that does not know too much about running wire though their vehicle. The cable itself is very soft and flexible which makes it easy to hide under carpets or behind kit panels. The only thing this kit lacks are the fork terminals you would use on certain amps. However this is not too big a deal where as most amplifier manufactures seem to be going to the allen scew down terminals so you wouldn't need the forks anyway.

This kit has just about everything you need, I would only make a couple minor changes.
The power/ground wire isn't true 4gauge, its closer to 6.
The kit comes with one black fork terminal, I needed to pick up another one for the positive hookup to my amp.
Other than that, there was a good amount of length for all the wiring and came with wireties that I didn't use due to how i hid the wires in the doorjam. Also came with grommets that I didn't use (I just pushed through a factory one).

This is a great kit. The only think that could be better is a little thicker speaker cable. It is sufficient but i just like a little bit bigger. I just used some of my own i had around the house. Otherwise the power and ground cables are thick and sturdy. All around good product.

I bought this because it was cheap so I was not expecting a lot. Just for a little 50x4 MB Quart amp. This is not a 4 gauge kit at all. Honestly it is a 7 gauge kit. The insulation is very thick making the small wire look much larger until you look at it in a cross view. It is awkward because if you use the terminals that come with the kit they are for a 4 gauge kit and really do not work with the small wire. And it is just slightly to large for 8 gauge terminals.
