Our take on the T-Spec 4DAK Installation Kit

by Buck Pomerantz
T-Spec

Power up to specification

The 4DAK dual amplifier wiring kit from T-Spec helps deliver the power you need to drive your music to the highest level. This comprehensive kit includes 4-gauge power and ground wires, 8-gauge power and ground wires, an 18-gauge turn-on lead, 12-gauge speaker wire, two 17-foot stereo patch cables, two distribution blocks, a fuse holder, and an assortment of hardware useful for your installation. T-Spec Competition Rated Car Audio makes wiring products that meet all American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) standards for size, strand-count, resistance, and insulation quality. With T-Spec wiring, your amps and speakers will get the energy they need to give you peak performance.

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.

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.
