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.

All i can say is that this wire kit gets the job done i have it hooked up to 4800 watts of power and i have no problem with it. And it alo comes with speaker wires. No amp kit i ever bought came with speaker wires so it's a good deal.

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.

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 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)

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.
