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.
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.
20 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

Review of this 8 guage wiring kit

September 16, 2008

I bought this kit because of the price! I read some of the other reviews first and noticed some of them talked about the guage of the wires were not accurate? but I thought I would try it out anyway's? After receiving this product, I noticed immediately that the wire guage is not accurate at all! In fact on the box it even says that they measure the guage on the complete "outside" of the part. This includes the wire's plastic insulation!!! after reading this I took an 8 Guage wire that I had from an old amp and noticed that when I striped off my insulation of my old 8 guage wire it was indeed the same size of this kit's "total" size of their 8 guage power wire! This could be dangerous in most aplications where a true size is required for your system? The only thing I will be using from this kit is the RCA cables. They are very nice!!

Alright

October 25, 2009

This wiring kit is not a 8 gauge it is more like a 10 or 12. The power wire is not long enough to go from the battery to the trunk. And cheap remote wire. But hey you get what you pay for. I don't recommend this.

Not the greatest kit...

February 20, 2008

The acutal wire according to my wire strippers in 12 AWG. Power and ground. The RCAs were probably the nicest thing in the kit. The split loom is really thin, but it works. The terminals are also really nice. My fuse holder broke right away. The remote wire is a joke, its definately not 16 awg, more like 22. I could pull on it and break it. The speaker wire is also incredibly small.

I guess this kit will work but you mine as well get the actual 12 AWG kit for 8 bucks.

8 Guage is Not Necessarily 8 Guage with this Product

May 1, 2005

The actual conductor (wire), both Power and Ground are MUCH closer to 10 gauge than 8 gauge however for $11 this kit is hard to beat.

power wires

July 21, 2004

This is a great kit with the exception of the power and ground wires. The wire plus the insulation is 8 gauge but the wire itself is not, which I was very disappointed in. So just be aware of that when looking at this product.

Hated it!

November 28, 2009

Purchased this kit and could deal with maybe 1 problem, but I had 2. The remote turn on wire gauge is too thin and will break at connection point even when using connectors. The RCA wires are low grade and do not stand up to too much bending, as they will break continuity and give you interupted feedback from your receiver. I will replace this kit immediately with a higher quality amp wiring kit.

I bought this wiring kit from sonicelectronix and is an excellent value. The gauge is probably not accurate to specs but for the price is worth it.

Good for the Price

July 12, 2007

As state in other reviews, this is about the cheapest wiring kit out there. Although it may not be the 8 gauges it touts, it definitely gets the job done, and for simple (not too high powered) systems, it has everything you need to get the job done. Excellent if you're on a budget and you're not pushing a lot of power.

GREAT kit for the price, Works well

August 18, 2006

This kit is excellent for the price. Sure a few things are lackluster, but you can't beat it for you pay for it. I have this hooked up to a four channel, 300 watt amp and it works very well with it. No problems with installation or wire shortage. There was plenty of wire to do all of my wiring. I got exactly what I expected when I ordered this from Sonic. I am pleased with this purchase and reccommend this to anyone who wants to save money on wiring a low watt amplifier. The RCA wires aren't the best, but they are great for what you pay for them.

I would recommend this for an entry level system that won't be upgraded in the future. The gauge of the wire is very thin. But item is as described. Comes with everything necessary.

Cheap and it works

January 8, 2009

You get what you pay for. I am using this on a Kenwood KAC-6202 200 watt rms amp and its working great. Cheapest deal you will find. Wires are not actually 8 gauge unless you include the plastic shielding. Be careful about overpowering this amp wiring kit.
