Amplifier Kit Specifications

Amp Kit Type
Amplifier installation kit come in two different types: Power or Complete. Power Amp kits are designed to only provide power to the amplifier. Complete kits will provide power and signal to the amplifier. Many of the complete kits will also include speaker wire to connect the amplifier to the subwoofer.
Complete
Number of Amplifiers Supported
This is the number of amplifiers that the amplifier kit can support. If you are are going to be powering more than one amplifier, make sure that the installation kit will support them.
1
Power/Ground Wire Size
The power/ground gauge numbers represents the main wire size of the amplifier kit.

Definitions are as follows:

Gauge (wire) - The diameter of a wire. The higher the number, the thinner the wire. Example: 4 gauge wire has more strands than 10 gauge wire.

AWG (American Wire Gauge) - A standard of the dimensional characteristics of wire used to conduct electrical current or signals. AWG is identical to the Brown and Sharpe (B & S) wire gauge.
4 gauge
Power Wire Length
This is the length of the power wire in feet.
17 feet
Power Wire Color
Blue
Ground Wire Length
The length of the ground wire in feet.
3 feet
Ground Wire Color
Black
Speaker Wire Included
If speaker wire is included, the value will be "Yes" and if no wire is included, it will read "No".
No
Remote Wire Length
This is the length of the remote wire that is included with the item.
17 feet
Interconnect (RCA) Signal Cables Included
Interconnect cables are required for amplifiers which are installed to the "RCA preamp low-level outputs" of a car stereo receiver. If your amplifier has high-level / speaker level inputs, then you do not need to purchase interconnects; however, interconnects offer a much higher quality sound when compared to speaker level inputs.
2 Channel
Fuse Holder
This is the type of fuse holder that is included in the item.
Mini ANL
Fuse Size
This is the size of the fuse that is compatible with the fuse holder. If the fuse needs to be replaced, be sure to replace it with the same size.
60A
Distribution Block Included
This means that the kit includes a distribution block in the package. This will assist in the installation of the amplifier kit or any situation where a distribution block is required.
No
Complies to AWG Standards
Since 1857, The AWG (American Wire Gauge) system has been the standard for measuring the diameter of wire. AWG standard is the measure of bare wire to find true gauge. Companies that do not follow AWG Standards include the thickness of the wire jacket which means the actual wire is not "True to Gauge". For the best performance from your amplifier wiring kit, make sure that the cable complies to the AWG standard.
No
Wire Material
The material that the wire is made of. Copper & aluminum are the most commonly used materials. OFC - Oxygen Free Copper is the ideal choice for wire material. Copper is a superior electrical conductor, & does not expand or contract with heat. CCA - Copper-Clad Aluminum is a suitable choice for lower powered or budget applications. The power transfer is not on par with OFC, but this material offers significant savings.
CCA (Copper-Clad Aluminum)

New amp kit

November 12, 2013

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!

May 27, 2011

I wouldn't try to pass more than 600 watss rms through this. The price is very cheap but the actual wire is 8ga. If you need the real power I would suggest saving extra and getting a real 4ga kit... it'll be worth it in the end.

AK4

March 3, 2011

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

Decent for the money

November 7, 2013

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

Not bad

April 29, 2014

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.

2nd time with this install bay kit

September 17, 2013

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.

Decent Install Kit

September 10, 2012

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.

Gets the job done but bad rca cables

April 23, 2012

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.

the ak4 wiring kit

March 7, 2012

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 runing over 1000 watts througth this cable

October 27, 2011

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.
