Flexibility

Flexibility

NVX stranded wire is extremely tolerant of the rough conditions in vehicles and compensates for vibration, heat expansion and flexibility. This flexible but well shielded wire is crucial for getting through all of the nooks and passage ways within the cramped confines of vehicle interiors.


 
Cable Thickness

Cable Thickness

The thickness of the actual wire, not the insulation, is critical when it comes to transferring the extraordinary current of your audio system. With hundreds of strands of wire in one cable you get an increased current flow and a higher amperage carrying capacity with a reduced cable size.


 
Insulation Material

Insulation Material

EnvyFlex insulation hinders electric current from exiting the wire prematurely which prevents electrocution and damage to components within the vehicle. Additionally, the insulation maintains the flexibility of the wire while preventing corrosion and damage in the hostile vehicle environment.


 
Bundled Copper Wires

Bundled Copper Wires

In an attempt to beef up their wires, some manufactures use all aluminum or mix copper and aluminum to give the appearance of a quality cable. NVX wire is 100% oxygen free, silver tinned copper which reduces corrosion, increases current transfer, and won’t discolor the insulation of the wire.


 
Weight

Weight

NVX wire is hefty and strong, but not overly shielded to increase its weight. A quality cable just feels right with a perfect size to weight ratio that leaves it easy to handle but rugged enough to perform its duties.

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.
Power
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
Blue
Ground Wire Length
The length of the ground wire in feet.
3 feet
Ground Wire Color
Gray
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.
40 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.
No
Fuse Holder
This is the type of fuse holder that is included in the item.
ANL/Mini 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.
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.
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)

NVX-XAPK8

December 12, 2014

This product comes with EVERYTHING you need to install an amp in your car. All of the parts are high quality from the wires to the fuse. With a few things from Home Depot or Lowes you have a professional looking install that looks like you just got the work done by a professional.

I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone installing an amp!!-

Great buy!

November 10, 2014

Bought this amp kit to pair with the NVX mini amp. The wires are too big for this small of an amp but I am very impressed with the quality of wire used in this kit. This is a true 8 gauge kit. Will definetly buy again!

Great quality

January 26, 2014

I'm an audiophile for home stereo system and never touched car audio and accessories until I installed new sound system in my Mini Cooper recently. Reason I got this kit simply because speaker cable was long enough for my installation, maybe also the keyword 'OFC' in the description.
Overall quality really surprises me, and sound quality was pretty acceptable. I didn't get chance to A/B compare to any of my other speaker cables (from V.D.H/Zu Audio/Kimber) but also make sense not to. No harsh high and well present mid and low and it's only $40.

The Best Quality!

June 14, 2013

The minute I took all the wiring out from the box I could tell right away I made the right choice. The power and ground wire was the right weight and had plenty of flexibility in it. I bought a Kicker ZX300.1 and it required an 8 AWG kit instead of my 4 Gauge kit. The 4 Gauge kit was not even true 4 AWG, the wiring was cheap and the copper just flaked from the wire when I crimped it. The speaker wire from NVX is amazing and I love the design NVX gave for it as well (one is square other is round).

The quality of the bass has improved massively, very clean and sounds much more full. I am now going to be buying more NVX products from now on, this company rocks! Their prices are cheap, but you get superb quality.

What a kit

January 19, 2014

First amplifier install kit for me. Included everything as advertised and high quality components at that. No reduced gauge wiring here. I used it to install an NVX MVPA4 into my 2011 F150. The amp fits under the dash so I have lots of wire left over. Did I say great quality? Yes. And great price from Sonic.

I bought these to hook up to my massive audio nx4. Sound is clean and the wiring has a great look to it. I can see nvx took their time when designing this kit. Definitely would recommend it

Heavy, heavy means expensive, which means quality.

August 21, 2015

Big things come in small packages is what my title would have been, but was too much of a cliché. I am a HUGE NVX fan and this cable only proves myself on why, everything is heavy and well built and put together very nicely, I plan to use it in the future for a daily, I got another kit because this one, although I got it for free with another purchase, it wouldn't be able to handle the power the other amp would draw.

NVX Amp Wiring Kit

May 21, 2016

This is a high quality OFC amp wiring kit for a great price. Comparable to, or better than name brands like Monster, Kicker and Rockford The power cable is flexible and comes in a nice protective mesh with a crimped 5/16" diameter lug on the battery end. The 16 ga. speaker wires are much beefier than is what is typically used in car installs. I matched this set with some NVX RCA cables, which are also good. Overall, very impressed.

Worth the extra money!

March 27, 2016

This kit has everything you need. The wire is high quality and the proper gauge unlike the cheap no-name brands out there. There is more than plenty of the speaker wire. I also really like the wire loom protector on the power wire and the bolt connections are already installed.

Like the look of NVX wiring
Allan D on Nov 30, 2015
new accessories require new wire runs, I want durability and reliability. Sonicelectronix tech. Christian Yi said these will work fine, Can't wait. Sunday Morning I'm going to open the door's and blast a particular neighbor out of bet. I wonder if I play some heavy metal it will run off gophers?
Carlos R on Nov 6, 2015
I already have a RCA cable so this kit sounded perfect for my soon-to-be setup. Also, the kit NVX line of kits is recommended by the staff.
