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!

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.

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.

It comes with everything you need for dual amps, but the wire is very very poor. the "0" gauge is more like 4 gauge, and the "4" gauge is 8-10 gauge. But other then that the product is very nice!

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.

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, 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.

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.

The quality of the kit was very good. but it is not a 4 gauge or a 1/0 gauge kit, the 1/0 gauge is possibly 2 gauge, and the 4 gauge is more like 8 gauge. So if you had a lower power amp this would be perfect, but for an amp that really needs the real sizes, you'll need to look for a bigger kit.

Undersized wires!

October 6, 2011

This is a great value as you get alot of quality items for a low price. The catch here is that all the conductors are smaller than indicated. My old 4 AWG power cable was about the same size of the "0 gauge" cable in this kit and the "4 gauge" is more like an 8 AWG. Besides that, all the accessories are true 0 & 4 AWG sizes. Overall, good bang for your buck kit if you dont need a 0 AWG cable. Also the wire itself is a copper plated aluminum which is an okay conductor.

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...

Good For Price

February 13, 2011

Been Installing systems for 5+ years!

This kit was excellent for the price! Its pay for itself with the fuses, terminal, and dis block.

Pro's:
-The money paid alone was good enough for the fuses, terminal, and power distribution block..
-RCA'S are decent 3.5/5
-For a budget project this is worth a purchase but dont use the ground wire!!!

Con's:
-The 0 Gauge wire is more like 3 or 4 gauge wire which is decent if it were true copper, but its still okay.
-The worst thing would have to be the ground wire which as 8 gauge not 4 or 0 or even close, id recommend cutting off whats leftover with your power wire to use as a ground because you want your ground wire to be the same as your power wire diameter wise.

Decent wire kit

August 23, 2010

I measured the wires and they may be a little bit smaller, so like a 1 and 5 gauge wiring. But they are within tolerance to call it 0 and 4 gauge. I didn't like anything else really. I bought other fuse holders and ring terminals cause nothing really fit well. All of the fuse holders are made pretty cheap. But for the price it isn't bad.

I did have some difficulty crimping the ring terminals onto the 0 gauge for the fuse holder. When I couldn't find a replacement ring terminal that large locally, I ended up going with a different screw down connected fuse holder. My fault though.

The only down size to these is the fact that they are not 1/0 that they say they are but other than that everything is of good build. I also just have these running about 900-1000rms after I add one more amp then it will be up too 1200-1300rms. Going a little bit bigger than what you need is all ways a good idea sense it just allows the pwr move in an easier fashion I noticed the voltage meter on my truck to not pull as much when it was running proof enough for me.

June 20, 2011

What I wanna know is why would they sell 8 AWG ground wire with 3 AWG power wire.. i swear a bunch of monkeys on scooters came up with this package. as for the remote wire, throw it away in the nearest trash bin. next would be the rca wires, they are pretty decent and get the job done along with the speaker wire. all terminals, blocks etc work good as well. In car audio you always get what you pay for, it doesnt matter how much of a good deal you think your getting. if wiring says "Gauge" and not "AWG" then expect it to be 2-4 gauges smaller.
BOTTOM LINE: this is ok for smaller systems but for over 1000 watts do what I did and save for Kicker or tsunami true 0/1 AWG power and speaker wire.

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.

EPIC!

September 12, 2009

This wiring kit is awesome! It may not truly be 0 gauge and 4 gauge, but it is very thick and able to power my 1700w rms at 2 ohms amp quite easily. It has everything you need to install, and has more than enough power cable. Their was not enough speaker wire for my install, but that was because i have 4 subs, it should be plenty enough for two though. Overall, awesome product and would recommend anyone looking for a cheap, yet awesome wiring kit :P

1/0 Amplifier Wiring Kit

February 2, 2015

Once again completely satisfied with a product from you guys (Sonic Electronix). This kit had all the "bells and whistles". Including an extra set of RCA cables, which were not listed in the item profile! Thanks! Careful with the connects on the fuse holders as you tighten, tho; they tend to misguide easily. But nothing major. Thanks so much Sonic Electronics, I will be competition ready by spring, thanks to you.

OK for the dollar amount

January 27, 2015

This is a good kit, but I feel they should have provided a couple of extra 0 gauge terminals.

Not actual 0 gauge

September 28, 2011

Looks great but the wire is not 0 gauge. The outer diameter might be, but not the inside actual wire. It is a nice set up though and looks professional when installed.

Good deal!!!

November 12, 2010

This wire kit is a pretty good deal. The wire are not the actual size they say they are and the wire is not solid copper. For the price this is an excellent deal. The fuse holders and battery terminal are good quality. If you are not running high watts I would say get this wiring kit.

Conducts electricity

August 23, 2012

What can I say, it's wire. As everyone else is screaming, no, it's not a 0 gauge kit, its essentially an oversize 4 gauge kit that uses copper clad aluminum but for the price I couldn't find anything quite as good. The included hardware was all pretty nice too.

good value for price

January 26, 2015

I would recommend this 0 gauge wiring kit for someone who's on a budget needs better than a 4 gauge and distribution blocks for $60 you can't beat it even though the wire is really only a 2ga it has a lot of PVC jacket on it but like I said for the money you can't beat it

Is it ok to use for smaller amps such as a 2500w?
michael g on Apr 4, 2015
Best Answer: Hi michael,

It is ok to use 2500watts with this kit. This install bay ak01 is rated up 3000 watts and not 3600. Because it is rated up to 3000 watts you can use any amp and power any amount of watts for example you can even use 50 watts but just don't go over 3000 watts.

If you ever exceed that amount of 3000 watts you will basically blow a fuse to protect the wires from overheating or burning.

2500 watts is actuallya good amount for this kit
