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.
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.
8 gauge
Power Wire Length
This is the length of the power wire in feet.
20 feet
Power Wire Color
Ground Wire Length
The length of the ground wire in feet.
3 feet
Ground Wire Color
Speaker Wire Included
If speaker wire is included, the value will be "Yes" and if no wire is included, it will read "No".
Remote Wire Length
This is the length of the remote wire that is included with the item.
20 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.
Fuse Holder
This is the type of fuse holder that is included in the item.
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.
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.
OFC (Oxygen-Free Copper)

Great wiring kit for Amp

June 2, 2013

Let's face it, when you're wiring your car, you want to use the best cables so you won't regret it later (through interference, noise, etc....). These cables are flexible and durable, the fuse is nice, ver easy installation.
You won't go wrong with these cables, I highly recommend.

Best amp kit in this price range

April 11, 2015

I have a pioneer GMA 3602 amp and I wanted to upgrade my amp kit because it was cca. This amp kit is the best in this price range and it's ofc. The amp was a little warm with the old amp kit and now it's not warm at all. The amp puts out about 60 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms which is no where near the 400 to 500 watts RMS limit of this cable, that's the reason why the amp runs cooler. I love this cable and I would definitely recommend it.

Its a Decent Kit. Had enough wiring to do the amp install in my 2015 Tucson. My Problem is the Fuse Holder. I think its not up to Kicker standards. The Clear Cover is only held in place by two tabs. I went to install it. Moved the cable. The Cover fell off. My quick solution was a couple of zip ties. I will be changing the Fuse Holder soon.

Good Deal!

December 26, 2014

I chose this set for 3 installs so I could save money on buying the length RCA cables needed for each. Making sure to only look for OFC kits, this one came out as the best deal for small amps only requiring 8 gauge.

The cable itself is great! Techflex on the front end for protection under the hood is excellent. You have to cut & strip the wire for the fuse block, but there is a section affixed with ravel protection on both ends where the fuse block is to be connected. This adds a functional & aesthetic appeal of professionalism. The remote cable is stout and all cables have durable jackets. Enough connectors to hook up an amp without having to use bare wire into the terminals unless the amp calls for it... standard pretty much.

The only thing I found I didn't like was the fuse block. The cover feels cheap and doesn't attach firmly. A slight bump could probably knock the cover loose leaving connections exposed to possible shorts. I wrapped the whole assembly with a small run of electrical tape in the middle to "secure" the cover. I really didn't like having to do that, but better safe than sorry. There also should have been an allen wrench included since it uses allen screws to secure the wire to the fuse block. It loses a few points for those issues. Other than that, it was a good kit for the price paid... $29.

Why did you choose this?
Sonic Electronix Store
Looked all over on other sites Sonic was the best price. And so far i have never been disapointed.
Don G on Jun 23, 2015
I needed a power wire for my Kicker ZX500.1 Amplifier to power my Kicker CVT 10" subwoofer. I figured I'd just keep it all Kicker because it's a car audio brand that I trust and enjoy.
Garrett S on Jun 9, 2015
Good price and everything for a clean install in one pkg
craig b on Jun 12, 2015
bought a kicker 450 watt rms subwoofer and wanted some quality wire to go with the quality sub.
Eric C on May 3, 2015
will this kit work fine with 300RMS watts?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2015
Best Answer: Yes!

It will easily. Just make sure you give both your amp and the battery solid grounds. When installing an amp, it is good practice to create a dedicated ground as close to the battery as possible. Also consider upgrading your battery terminals. All these additions will stop your headlights from dimming and make life easier on the vehicle.
