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".
Yes
Speaker Wire Length
This is the length of speaker wire that is included with the item.
15 feet
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.
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.
250A
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!

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.

Good, But less then advertised

July 6, 2010

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.

April 10, 2014

There is all you need to install the 2 amps in this kit sufficient wire I compared the thickness of the wire ( not the outside plastic ) to some of my friends 1/0 gauge kits more expensive at 200 Dlrs and the thickness is the same. And is not oxygen free .. My only disappointment is the fuse box They su ck. I needed to add tape to keep them close. That's all

Size

April 26, 2013

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.

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.

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.

The wires aren't as thick as they proclaimed, but they do their job well enough. I bought the kit due to the fused distribution block so I didn't have to run multiple power wires all the way to my battery. It's an adaquate kit at best.

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.

The gauge is not a true 1/0. Although, it does have great insulation which looks like a 1/0 gauge. Works fine and does the job for pushing a 2000 W Mono Block and a 1600W AB Amps.
