  9. Installation Hardware Kit
Note: Many companies claim their wire is 8 gauge when in reality it is 10 gauge or even less wire, and more plastic insulation to present an illusion of 8 gauge. Scosche did not want to make a false representation of their quality product so they specify their wire in millimeters, not the standard gauge system. We have decided that to present fair competition to the likes of "house brand" wire, and other unfair manufacturers which label their 6.5mm (or less) as 8 gauge.

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
Blue
Ground Wire Length
The length of the ground wire in feet.
3 feet
Ground Wire Color
Clear
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.
20 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.
20A
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)

The power cable is NOT 8 gauge!!!

May 15, 2010

I can't believe all the good reviews on this kit. The power cable is NOT 8 gauge! It's not anywhere near 8 gauge. It fits right inside of a 10 gauge connector. Even if you put in a higher amp fuse, the power cable can't put out more than 20 amps at 17 feet. Otherwise the RCA's and other stuff in the kit are of good quality. I was just disappointed to have to buy additional REAL 8 gauge power cable!

Nice looking. Not copper.

August 30, 2014

Did the job nicely. My expectations were not high for this product due to the low price. Very nice looking jackets on the power/ground cables. The RCA cable looks decent at best. The length of the power cable was cutting it real close so I had to be ultra conservative on the routing to make it work out. Make sure of your length requirements!! Otherwise it's in and does the job just fine.

Bought the amp kit after reviewing many others. Great price and works flawless. Comparable to another larger, more expensive, name brand kit that I bought afterwards. Great kit for basic systems.

Surprised!

September 13, 2010

Obviously at this price point, I didn't expect much - but I had a small amp to install that required minimum 10 ga. wire, so I figured this was worth a shot. Product was better then expected - signal cables are decent, the power wire was somewhat flexible and easy to work with. At $20 - can't complain.

Works good for the price, comes with everything you'll need.

March 25, 2010

I bought this after searching threw the net for the best price, not looking for anything for extreme power so the gauge of wire wasn't the biggest deal. It is exact in size and doesn't count the plastic. The connectors supplied for the amp were a little big so i had to cut them into forks. Have it hooked it with Alpine Amp (MRP-M500), Alpine Sub (SWE-1043), paired with an Alpine Head Unit (CDE-102) and 4 Polk Audio Speakers (db651s). Loud enough to cause my fuel line to start leaking and definitely sounds good with 8 Gauge. Would buy again.

Great Value!

March 16, 2010

I purchased this wiring kit to install my 500 watt amp in my '09 GMC Sierra Crew Cab. The kit came with plenty of wire to reach the back of my truck after routing it and hiding it through a less than direct path. The wires and RCA cables are a pretty high quality considering the price of the kit! The remote wire is pretty weak, but it works perfectly fine as a remote wire. I am very pleased with the value of this kit.

Great kit

July 29, 2009

Great little kit! I had a hard time crimping some of the terminals, which I had to use a vice on some, but I used this in conjunction with the e2E1000 kit to get all the wire and stuff I needed. It was cheaper than buying wire and things separately by the foot!

This is a great kit! It includes everything you need, as well as great instructions. I really had no idea what I was doing, so the instructions were very helpful. There was plenty of wiring, and the material seemed to be of good quality.

Gives you everything you need, including ground, power wires, connectors etc. Thought for the sub I got the wires would have been a thicker gauge, since it came in a kit with it matched to my sub and amp. But it works fine!

I used this instead of the harness that was supplied with my setup, it seems to be feeding my 350 watt visonik very well, not only does it work well it looks nice also, but I will do business with sonicelectronix from here out best company to deal with quick shipping and great buys.

Everything I needed, all wires clearly labeled, true 8 gauge, unlike some "8 gauge" packs. I have this wiring run all through my truck and it's thick, durable, and very easy to connect. Best buy for wire packs.

great amp kit !!!

March 23, 2015

The round fuses are much easier to work with than these new flat-blade p.o.s.'s . Be nice to have more connectors, but a great kit for $21.
