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)

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.

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!

Does job for the money

June 9, 2010

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.

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

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.

Godd kit for the price

October 21, 2008

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.

half decent for the price

December 26, 2011

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.

It works, sorta

December 6, 2011

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.

Its good for the price i have to buy a second power wire

February 14, 2011

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.

Great Kit!! Not to cheap Not to expensive

March 9, 2010

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.

Good wires for the price

April 1, 2014

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.

Great beginner's amp kit!

October 10, 2012

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 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).

Great install kit for a first timer !!!

January 11, 2010

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)

Good price for a decent kit.

December 15, 2009

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.

Great Value!!!

October 5, 2013

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!!!

Gets the job done

December 21, 2012

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.

Cheap. Misleading product.

March 21, 2012

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.

Ok kit for the money.

January 24, 2012

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.

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.

I bought this about 2 years ago to install my Kicker 500.1. The amount of wire provided was just right, and the speaker wire has actually lasted through 2 of my installations. Good cheap way to get your amp hooked up.

A good cheap install kit.

November 8, 2014

Not sure what else to say. Wireing is all the actual guage, fuse/connectors are included. Wire is Aluminum coated with copper but your not going to find solid copper for this price. I dident use the RCA's but they look decent.

Very flexable and easy to run.

It works for what it is

November 4, 2014

If you need an amp kit to get you by till you can afford a better OFC kit, this works pretty good. Is it true 4 gauge, no, but not to far off. The only other thing is the remote wire is way to small. I had to use some other wire I had for that. Over all its an OK kit.

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.

Medium grade kit, not true 4gauge in my eyes but it has worked fine for systems up to 1500 watts for me. I have used this exact kit in about 6 of my installs in the last couple months. Cheap but effective and good for the price!!

Very Good Kit

July 28, 2009

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.

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.

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.
