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.
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.

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.
AGU
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.
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.
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.

The kit is pretty good for the price. I just didn't like the 16-gauge speaker wire. The 12-gauge is highly recommended for best sound quality. The power wire was felixable, so that was a good sign that it would last a long time without having some of the internal strands tear with sharp corners. Overall for the price it's a good quality amp wiring kit.

This product had a lot of high quality wiring and connectors for the money. One thing that I had to source elsewhere was four component speaker wire, but I still think the kit itself is a good value.

Cheap wires

July 11, 2008

The "4" gauge wires in this kit are a little thin for 4 gauge and the speaker wire is way too small for a high powered system. I'd say get this kit, but upgrade the speaker wires to something like an 8 gauge wire for best quality. While you're at it I'd pick up some better RCA's too

Wires are wires plain and simple. I have this map kit hooked up to a 500/1 JL amp and it powers it fine. Defintly better to get then a JL kit which cost triple to amount of money. One problem with it is the RCA sux and then speaker wire is only 16 gauge, whne you shoudl have 12-8 gauge for subs. But all the power parts to it are perfect
