Our take on the T-Spec 4RAK Installation Kit

by Buck Pomerantz
T-Spec

Power up to specification

This 4RAK amplifier wiring kit from T-Spec helps deliver the power you need to drive your music to the highest level. The kit includes 4-gauge power and ground wires, an 18-gauge turn-on lead, 12-gauge speaker wire, a 17-foot stereo patch cable, 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

Good kit but has some flaws

Written By Vortex101, Ca on Tuesday, September 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this kit to install a five channel amp in my car. Overall it is a good kit but it has some flaws.

Power Wire/Ground Wire They are the same style of wire except one is grey while the other is white. They are very thick which is good for safety and power transfer but can be a pain when running wire in tight areas. Came with excellent o-ring connectors and rubber ends to make a clean install. Overall the wires are an excellent choice 5/5

Speaker Wire Again similar to the power wire the are very good quality thick with lots of copper in them. The major downside is how short the wire actually is. To be fair it is clearly listed in the description but it dose not hit you till you see them in person. I have a small car it is a scion tc and the wire was only able to reach to rear seats from the headunit after being ran on the transmission tunnel and cut in equal halves. Quality is high but size is severely lacking. 3/5

Remote wire Really long wire but the quality is not on par with the rest of the kit. It is really thin but all it acts as is a turn on so not too much importance. 4/5

Fuse Holder/Fuse My biggest gripe with this kit was the fuse holder. The fuse is just a standard ordinary fuse nothing special about it dose it job well. However the fuse holder is in my opinion is junk. First it would not hold the wires correctly making them fall out over and over. After finally resolving that with tape the screws became stuck making the entire fuse holder useless. 2/5
Pros:
power wire ground wire lead wire
Cons:
speaker wire fuse holder

Used this amp install kit on my alpine 500x1 amp running my JL Audio 12" W3V3. Thought the wire gauge was to thick but it works perfectly.

Great installation kit!

Written By Doug, Lodi, CA on Monday, October 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed a Subwoofer and amp in the rear of 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad-Cab using this wiring kit. Top quality parts and wiring. Made the installation process so much easier. The quality of the 4 gauge power wire with in-line fuse was second to none! Very flexible and easy to route from the battery under hood through the firewall into the cab and into the rear seat area. The power cable was the perfect length for where I mounted the amp and required no trimming. Could not be happier with the product and how much easier the installation went by using the kit. Would recommend to anyone interested in doing the same installation.
Pros:
Worth its weight in gold!
Cons:
None.
