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
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".
Yes
Speaker Wire Length
This is the length of speaker wire that is included with the item.
20 feet
Remote Wire Length
This is the length of the remote wire that is included with the item.
16 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.
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.
150A
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.

did the job

March 18, 2011

Well the wire was a little thin, but it has a lot of strands, powers good, the remote wire was really flimsy but stiff at the same time, I would move it, then it would bouce back the the same spot made it hard to hide the wires, but I got the job done, the fuse I like, but I don't like the set up!

Couldn't beat it with a stick...even if you had to.

September 19, 2010

I chose this install kit cause of the price and quality as well as the fuse holder. The wire size is a little under what they claim it to be, but for the price you can't beat it and the ANL fuse holder is way better for upgrading your system later. All in all I would totally recommend this amp kit for anything under 1000 watts. 800 should be your max.

It works, but its el cheapo

September 6, 2010

Wire does not feel 4 gauge, plastic shield is 5mm, same thickness as 4 gauge strand! Fuse block is cheap and plastic-y. Ring terminals are too small to fit battery/ground. Feels cheap, save yourself the time if you get this and run to hardware store, get some real 4 gauge ring terminals!

I bought this kit to upgrade my power wire for my amp. It does have it all so if you are looking for some thing that is cheap and you don't have a lot money I would say go for it. The only thing I would have to say is that you get one screw for the fuse so that don't make to much sense to me. The gauge is off, but what a big surprise on that. It looks to be about a 6 not a four, but for the price you can't beat it. RCA cables don't look to bad either, I was surprise on that end. The ground is short, but is a easy fix if you just go to a hardware store.

I don't recommend to use the speaker wires in the kit, because the copper is lacking in the wires. Like I said I bought the kit for the power wire and I am happy with it. Oh yeah the title tells you its a 5000 watt kit, you would be lucky to get it to hold up to 1200 watts. I also read the reviews before I bought this it's not like I didn't know what I was getting into when I bought it. Overall I would give a 3.5 out of five. I say that because it's neither the worst or the best, it's just good. I would recommend to buy monster if you have the money. I have used it before and its very good.

I gave it a 3 on durability, because I have not had it long .

Installed to feed my Audiobahn HTC 1500, Works well and no problems whatsoever. Fuse holder knocked it down a bit on the durability scale, its not as heavy duty as I would like it to be but everything in this kit works. Wire quality is good, gauge seems correct for actual cable diameter.

Wow good stuff

January 7, 2012

im reviewing all the stuff ive ever ordered on Sonic's website and i actually ordered this kit like 4 years ago for a 1000 watt rms system. I had up until last week unbelievable i still use the fuse, fuse-holder, 4 gauge wiring, remote wire EVERYTHING. Can't really beat it if your running 1200 watts or less. Get it AMAZING KIT also makes it easy for the beginner.
