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.

Speaker Wire Included
If speaker wire is included, the value will be "Yes" and if no wire is included, it will read "No".

Speaker Wire Length
This is the length of speaker wire that is included with the item.
16 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.
AGU
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.
60A
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.
CCA (Copper-Clad Aluminum)

I bought this kit to wire the Kenwood KAC-8105D amp. The main reason i went with this one was because of the cheap price, the cheap price shows somewhat in the quality of the wire, but it did the job just fine, i've had it for about 6 months now and have had no issues.

Not the worst, but not the best either

November 12, 2012

Bought this kit for wiring up my two Rockford Fosgates and Kenwood monoblock amp. Entire kit was okay for the most part, but after finally seeing it all up close, I immediately wish I had spent the extra money for a better kit. The power and ground cables aren't true 4-gauge wire. The "copper coated aluminum" just does not cut it for me. The strands fell apart when trying to crimp a connector to the end, twisting them together, or inserting them into the amp terminal for power. Might be good for a starter kit, but definitely not for those who have been in the car audio game for a good while.

I do not recommend this amp kit

July 31, 2012

I am currently running a Kenwood KAC-9105D with this amp kit and it does work but I wish that I would have bought a better kit from stinger. The wires are kinda cheap and appear to be aluminium coated with copper. This kit would be fine for 500 watt amps or less in my opinion

Ehhh It works...

June 22, 2012

If your gonna sell a kit product make sure everything fits together properly. The power wire doesn't fit very well in the fuse cap and the cap misthreads constanly. I prefer the block type fuses but it was a cheap kit and it does what is supposed to do overall. Metal quality is good, the insulation is excellent, but the terminals and fuse container suck. Didn't use any of the terminals, had to custom make terminals but not the fault of the kit, this vehicle had some wonky connections.

Good for the price, but obviously not the best

January 29, 2012

Definitely worth it for the price, I got them with a kit though, but for the cost I would recommend this as a starter or weaker kit. The power wires aren't 4 gauge at all but they're enough to power maybe like 500 or 600 watt amps and sound fine. They're a bit not flexible but they all still bend and get what you need done. For a higher powered system I would recommend Stinger or Kicker but these work fine, just at lower volumes. They are shielded so don't let other reviews turn you away, I had to attack them with knives to cut some of them and the RCAs got pretty badly sliced by my car but are still under whatever material you want to call that.

Good buy for the price.

Terrible, Cheap Wires

September 18, 2011

I bought these wires as a package deal with a Kicker ZX400 amp and these wires are absolute garbage. They fall apart whenever trying to the twist the wires and its not true 4 gauge wire. They get the job done but will never buy this product again. Updating wires today.

July 17, 2011

Well, I shoulda read more of the reviews...The power cable is definately not 4 AWG. Maybe in some other country, might pass for a 6 gauge or so here in the USA. Very fine strands of copper wire. Ever heard the old addage "ya get what ya pay for" never more true. The RCA cables are twisted, but no shielded. This will work for a starter setup with lower wattages.

Decent enough

July 13, 2011

This is a nice wiring kit. The wire is not true 4 gauge it's more like 6 but it's good enough to push about 600 or 700 watts RMS or just to hook up a 4 channel amp. The RCA's feel kinda cheap but there realiable and get the job done. Overall it is a good amp kit if your not building a crazy system I'd say 600 rms or less. I'd most likely buy this again but if you want a really nice true 4 gauge kit I'd buy Kicker or Tsunami or Stinger.

Dont do it fella!

March 27, 2011

This item is garbage. The RCA cables are very poorly shielded if shielded at all. They were installed correctly away from any power cables completely on their own but produced irritating noticeable feedback. The gauge is thin and the barrel connecters are so thin it feels like they are made of aluminum foil. The amp power cables are of decent quality and i would recommend them. The fuse holder for the main power wire coming off your battery is a bit flimsy. The rubber gaskets broke down and wore out quickly and the screws to hold the wire in place fell out from vibrations.

Pretty Good Kit

January 7, 2011

I got this kit along with my Rockford R500-1 amp, and I also bought a second kit to supplement this one, but I ended up using this kits power and ground cables. They are of good build, while they probably aren't true 4 gauge, they do the job fine. The RCA's are not good quality, they were already corroding slightly when i took them out of the packaging! Other than that, this kit isn't bad.

Good kit

October 10, 2010

This kit works great for my 800 watt RMS system. The only complaint I have is the ground wire is very short so it limits connection options but nonetheless I was able to connect it. I did have enough positive wire left over to cut it off and have more than the ground but I did not want to cut any of the wire. The RCA wires were easy to connect and all of the other wires were easy as well. I would recommend buying a larger fuse. I do not remember but it comes with but I got a larger one from my friend that was 3 times the size because his blew very easily.

The wires are mostly filler if you want thicker wiring spend a little more if you can. Do not skimp out on the wiring because your amp will pay the price and then you will REALLY need to spend alot of money.

Very good value, but wires are a little thin

June 20, 2009

This is a very good kit for the price. The RCAs are stranded, the wire sheaths are flexible, Quality is good, but the power and ground wires are a little thin. When I contacted customer service I was told that no mistake was made, "you get $29 worth of copper wire, if you want thicker wires, you need to spend $50." Keep that in mind with your install.

The coating on the power was very flimsy and the tubing they sent didn't help. So I reinforced it with a lot of electrical tape, and it helped and the fuse they send you isn't good at all you will probably blow it in a few days, but other than that it's great.
