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.
8 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.
17 feet
Remote Wire Length
This is the length of the remote wire that is included with the item.
17 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 to install a Rockford Fosgate 500 amp with a 10 inch sub woofer in her car. It was a perfect match for this set up. Best in quality and I would definitely recommend others to buy this set. Great for use with smaller amp, if you don't need another gauge size.
Thanks to SonicElectronix for always helping out figuring out what to choose, fast shipping and awesome service.

wiring not sized as advertised

October 18, 2011

The gauge wiring for this kit isn't close to 8 gauge. The 8 for power and ground are the same as my high quality 12 gauge SPEAKER wire. The 12 gauge speaker wire in the kit is close to my 16 gauge cheap wire. Whoever makes this is using deceptive marketing as they are putting really thick jackets on the wiring and calling it 8 gauge.

You get what you pay for I guess.

Worked better than expected

October 4, 2011

I purchased this wiring kit for my first system. It is rated at a 1000 watts and i had it running a 1200 watt amp. i still have it. i have used it in two cars and it fit them both perfectly. I like that you can run a pritty good sized amp with resonably small wires. I used them in a 2000 accord ex and a 2000 civic ex and hooked it up to the fuse box instead of the battery and it worked fine.

Needs better fuse/ fuse holder

August 30, 2011

Wrote a review back in April giving this kit rave reviews... still a decent kit considering the price but just lost power to my sub today. When I checked the wiring out, the fuse holder is COMPLETELY MELTED on the back end!!! The wiring (which was my concern in the beginning) has held up just fine... The kit just needs a higher qualty fuse/holder...

gets the job done

August 29, 2011

Was looking for a cheap alternative to wire up a sub and amp, this fit the bill-not the greatest construction, but does the job at a good price.

Pretty good for the $$$

April 7, 2011

Not the highest quality kit obviously, but good stuff for the price. Everything you need to power an amp. Not really sure about the whole claim that it can power a 1000 watt amp... I would definitely go with a 4 guage kit for something that size. But I only have 1 12" Rockford p1 (150w rms, 300w max).... enough for some good sound inside the truck without pissin' off the neighbors or the cops outside the truck. (they're real pricks with that noise pollution bull crap.) Accurate description, easy set up, delivery was a bit slow (7 business days), but for free shipping from Cali to Delaware (all the way on the East Coast), I guess there's not really much room to complain. All in all I was very pleased.

Do not buy this wiring kit. Cheap materials = poor connections and performance. There are much better options for a little more money. IMO.

Good enough for the price

January 10, 2012

I got this kit to add a amp/sub combo to my wife's car about a year ago and it is still holding up. Just running one amp which is a Kicker 150.2 that is bridged to a single 12" sub, the amp puts out about 200 watts rms and this power wire carries sufficient current to the amp. I do agree with everyone else, that it is not "true" 8 guage wire yet it is also not a "true" 8 guage price either. The RCA cables are fine, the speaker wire is decent, but the remote wire is very weak and will even break if you pull very hard on it, so definitely be careful with the remote wire or get some stronger wire for sure. The fuse holder is pretty standard as a low end fuse holder and works as advertised. Definitely adequate for a one amp setup, wouldn't push it much past that though.

Cant beat the price

October 7, 2010

I have installed many systems with this cable and for the price you cannot beat it for low wattage systems. If you are running high power amps or multiple amps you need larger/higher quality cable. however for adding one small sub to a system you cannot beat $15 ANYWHERE.

junk

January 15, 2012

Like others said, not even CLOSE to 8 gauge wire. Close to 12. About the only good thing in this kit is the fuse holder.
