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)

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.

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 wire kit for the money. This includes everything u'll need to install your amp and subs, plus the bright blue wire looks killer in the car. I advise purchasing a wire crimper if u don't already own one to properly crimp the terminal ends on wire.

Perfect for 400w or less

October 17, 2007

I just installed this with an Alpine 400w amp in a 2003 MDX. The wires went all the way to the back of the SUV. The wires are all very quality and it comes with all the little connectors you need to get the the battery and to ground it to the frame.
Make sure that you go with a bigger gage if you are above 400w total power however.
The RCA cables are mid-level. They are nice for mid level though (and look good too)

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.

Decent Kit

December 5, 2007

Sure the patch cord isn't amazing, but it's a dirt cheap wiring kit. Everything else about the kit is quality, and as far as low power applications go, this kit does a good job. Had plenty of wire to run and low signal interference, even with the not-so-sweet patch cord. The overall look of the kit compliments the amp/sub setup of my trunk, and it definitely doesn't look as cheap as it is. Imperfections aside, this kit is perfect for powering an amp.

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.

I didn't use this for an amplifier setup but needed everything minus the rca cables. This kit was awesome. The gauge on the wire was great and wasn't too stiff to maneuver. The inline fuse is of great quality (though I had to increase the fuse inside) and all in all I am very satisfied.

real 8 guage wire for cheap

August 16, 2007

A really good buy for a 8guage kit. I got this for my ex-girlfriend for her 12" mtx and lighting audio amp. The wiring kit did it's job. I particularly like the fuse holder because some other cheaper kits skimp on the fuse holder whereas this one is made quite well and easy to use. Also there was more than enough wire for hooking up the amp. Great colors but that was only slightly visible in the trunk and under the hood =). I recommend this for a budget entry system. However go for bigger wire if you're planning to upgrade in the future to save yourself money and time.

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!

I already have these wire. Can I run this amp http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_6471_Alpine-MRP-M650.html with those wires ?
yannick D on Apr 12, 2015
Best Answer: Hello Yannick,

The 8 Gauge wire will suffice if you plan to use that amp at a 4ohm load. If , instead, you wish to run the amp at a 2ohm load, then we highly recommend 4 Gauge Power/Ground, preferably OFC.
