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.

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

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.
MAXI
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.
50A

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.
Yes
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.
OFC (Oxygen-Free Copper)

Unbeatable for the price.

September 22, 2009

This is the best wiring kit I've ever used. I've had Monster, Rockford Fosgate, Streetwires, and Phoenix Gold wiring kits, and the Kicker kit is the best by far.

The kit includes speaker cable AND RCAs, which is very rare. Plus, the quality and flexibility of the cable is top-notch.

With a $45 price tag and free shipping, this kit is unbeatable.

This Kit I bought for my Kicker C12 Subs and Kicker KX300.1 amp, putting these three together makes my system have king kong in the trunk, The kit comes with everything needed to install your system and make it beat harder than ever, If you have a system 400 rms watts or less I say this is the one for you.

I've used some other kits and seen plenty. This one is probably the nicest I've ever used. The fuse block is large and heavy. My setup did not require something so substantial so I found other uses for it. There was well more than enough cable for two amps and speaker replacements all around. Cables are strong and very flexible. Insulation is a good thickness, but not hard to shape. Colors are aesthetically pleasing if you can't hide the wires completely.
