Oxygen-free virgin copper

Recycled copper often contains impurities that can impair conductivity, so T-Spec uses only oxygen-free non-recycled virgin copper in all their wire to maximize signal and power flow. The high strand count and special PVC blended jacket give T-Spec wire an extraordinary flexibility, making installation easier. The power and ground wires in this kit each come with a sturdy ring terminal machine-crimped to one end, ensuring a secure contact with your car's battery and chassis ground. T-Spec even pre-installed the fuse holder (with an 80-amp fuse included) inline on the power wire, for your safety and peace of mind.

Dual amp power distribution

Power flows from your battery, first through the fuse, then through the main 4-gauge power cable, until it gets to a distribution block. From there, it flows to your two amps via short 8-gauge power wires. A ground lug accepts the two 8-gauge ground wires from your amps and allows you to attach it directly to your car's chassis or frame, forming a single grounding point. Or, if your grounding point needs to be farther away from your amps, you can use the lug as a ground distribution block, connecting the two 8-gauge grounds to the 4-gauge ground wire with the ring terminal to attach to your car.

Excellent kit for multi amp connection. A little vague on how to connect multiple grounds in line, but over all I am very pleased

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this kit to set up a sound ordinance m100-2 and an alpine mrv-100m. The cabling is very high quality, everything you need for a 2 amp setup has been thought of and included in the kit. Very satisfied with the materials and build quality of the individual components (i.e. Fuse, distribution boxes).

Pros: -High quality cables -All connectors and distribution block ls needs for two amp setup. -Perfect price point!

Cons:

Worked very well

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Kit was easy to install and had everything I needed to install two AMPs. The cables and wires seem to be high quality and lay down easily without leaving the shipping coil in the line during the installation. This was installed into a 2013 Honda Civic with the AMPs in the trunk and I had several feet remaining of the power cable and more than enough of the patch cables even with leaving plenty of slack in the layout. After reading other peoples reviews for products I feel its important to state what my install is to allow others to determine if it is similar to theirs and if this product will meet their needs. I gave 5 stars even though the kit could have provided a few more 4 gauge ring terminals, a second distribution block, and the ground cable could have been a foot longer. And the 12 gauge woofer wires are excessively long, but I guess that's not really a compliant. Overall the kit met my needs and I like the quality of the hardware. For the price its much better than the local box stores have and of course the Crutchfield support is phenomenal.

Pros: Easy to get the wires to lay flat, Price is satisfactory, quality of product is good

Cons: Could use a longer ground cable and more terminal rings in both 4 gauge and 8 gauge

I like it

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

i bought this kit for 2 mono amps. I really like the white clean look on black carpet. makes it stand out and if you play with it right it really looks nice. it different then your normal red and black. also very flexible for 4ga wire. very heavy duty connections.

Pros: came with 1 power block to reduce size going to amps for clean look

Cons: didnt come with a ground block to match. (sold separtely). also came with 2 17 ft patch lines only needed 1. the other is sitting under the seat. dont know what to do with. had to purchase a 1.5ft patch cable to keep clean.
