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.
2
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.
1/0 gauge
Power Wire Length
This is the length of the power wire in feet.
25 feet
Power Wire Color
Blue
Ground Wire Length
The length of the ground wire in feet.
6 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.
18 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.
4 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.
Yes
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)

It's OK for the price but could be dangerous.

February 19, 2010

I purchased this kit because of the price, and figured the fuse block, and accessories are worth the price.

I know the wire is greatly over rated at 0 and 4 gauge. The 0 gauge is more like 3 gauge and the 4 is closer to 8 gauge. The other problem with this kit is that the wire is not true copper, but rather copper coated aluminum wire. Aluminum wire is not as good of a conductor as copper. It's common for cheaper brands to use Aluminum only or Copper coated Aluminum wire in their kits to cut costs. The copper coating acts like a carrier and helps power get from point a to point b since Aluminum is not as good of a conductor on its own. I guess this kit could be worse but should not be sold at a 0 gauge kit.

With that being said; they really shouldn't skimp on the wire size in this kit since it is already impaired by the material that comprises the wire its self.

If you don't know this going into the installation it could be dangerous since the main fuse is over rated for the size and construction of the wire, and could allow the wire to overheat and catch on fire without ever blowing the included 250 amp fuse. If you are going to use this wire I would suggest using nothing higher than a 150 amp fuse.

The RCA cables look good but I have not used them yet to know how they perform.

I won't even get into the speaker or the remote wire...

I wish someone would hold these Chinese companies accountable for the misrepresentation and quality of their products. Putting more plastic on wire does not make it 0 gauge but it does make it a fire hazard!

Bottom line:
This is a good kit if you need 4 and 8 gauge wire. The included accessories like the fuse holders, RCA cables, and distribution blocks are worth the cost of the kit. Change the 250amp fuse to a 150amp and the 100amp fuses to 60amp for safety, and you should be fine.

Also, Sonic Electronics is great and got my items to me smokin fast!

VERY HAPPY

January 19, 2015

after searching for hours I found this installation kit which seemed to be the best deal out there and when I received it i found that I was correct, very good quality and I have no idea how they shipped it to me so fast, and at xmas time! The kit includes absolutely everything you need to install a couple 1,000 watt amps.

Worked for what I needed

August 27, 2012

This is a good cheap kit for someone on a budget. I would not run this in a car built for competition as it is not true 0Ga. It is a little bigger than 4Ga just not 0Ga. All of the blocks and fuses seem to be built well. No complaints.

Conductors are undersized

September 12, 2011

The conductors are undersized. the insulation is not. They most likely rated this on the overall size of the wire not the conductors size. The other items are over sized, as in very big. You might go else where...

Not bad

March 11, 2012

The actual wire is not all that thick, and its just copper coated. Typical low end gear but it gets the job done. My only complaint is the ground wire is smaller than power so i just used a small part of the power wire for grounding.

Fair product

August 21, 2011

The amp kit components was nice but the wire is very overrated. What i mean is the wire was suppose to be 0 gage but its more like 2 gauge. The 2 gage wire in the kit is more like 4 gauge. Overall the kit is okay!!!

it's alright for the money spent

July 21, 2011

I've used personally or installed professionally many different kits and this kit is definitely cheap for a reason. For the money, you are getting a lot, however it's all low quality. My biggest surprise was the wire jackets on the power and ground both read the same gauge size, however if you look at the copper the power wire has about twice as much copper than the ground. Kinda shady...

Not Bad, but not as advertised.

April 12, 2011

Overall, it's a good kit.

I have to mirror other comments about the wire gauge. It's not as advertised. I'm not running a monster system anyhow, will be about 600-800 w RMS so this should still do the job.

The remote wire is garbage, throw it away. The fuse blocks, and power distro's are what make this kit a gem. Those alone make this kit worth it.

I don't know about the 250 amp fuse though, that seems a bit overkill.

Nice budget kit

March 28, 2011

For the price this kit is great. If I was doing show quality install and not hidden install I would have upgraded, but served its purpose for the power of my system. Highly recommend if using in covert install. Not too empressed with the in line 100watt fuse and holder but it's not terrible.

Surprised.

March 14, 2011

I bought this thinking I would get a generic install kit. To my surprise it exceeded my expectations. Some people complain that the size of the wire in the kit is not correct. I measured the bare strand of both the 0 gauge and 4 gauge that came in the kit and they are to exact standard. The hardware is of medium quality. I would recomend this product. Definitely the best bang for tour buck.

Not really 0/1

November 30, 2010

I opened it, saw the wire size, and am shipping it back. Very disappointed. The 0/1 Gauge is smaller than 4 gauge, and the 4 gauge is smaller than 8 gauge. I liked that this kit seemed complete with all of the distribution blocks etc, too bad the wire is a joke.

The kit also smells really bad.
