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 a 60-amp fuse included) inline on the power wire, for your safety and peace of mind.

This wiring kit does not include patch cables. You will need to purchase those separately, in order to complete your amplifier installation.

Easy install if you know how you're going to route the wires. Has everything you need to hook up an amp. Would have been nice to have an extra foot or two on the power and ground if the amp is going in your trunk.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

12 gauge speaker wire is a great part of this, only drawback is it doesn't come with enough to do a four speaker setup. Also doesn't come with enough wire crimps to do a 4 channel amp, only enough for a 2 channel amp. But the kit is still way better than what I was seeing in other places, definitely recommend!!!

Pros: High quality wire and crimps

Cons: Not enough speaker wire, not enough crimps for a 4 channel amp.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Talk about heavy wire, not easy to strip. It's 12g...the lugs were interesting, but no good for the speakers..The negitive terminals were half the size yet the same gauge (16 or18 gauge:blue) I had to search the local auto stereo installation shop for crimp lugs. You also didn't give me enough forked lugs or wire...both the 5 1/2 "overhead and the front 4by6s are front with the unit powering the dash, and the amp powering the 5 1/2" overheads, and the 6 by 9s rear.The stereo shop had to again help me out with THEIR 12 gauge wire.. I'm still not quite done.

Good Kit for Amp Install

Written by: MPTech from St. Louis, MO on February 8, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good kit for installing Amp and speakers, my only complaint is there wasn't sufficient speaker wire length. 12' wasn't enough to even complete my 2 speakers install. My installation didn't require RCA connectors, but including speaker terminal connectors would have been better.

Pros: Good 8-gauge Hot and Ground wires, ring terminal connections, and 17 length was more than enough for the Hot wire.

Cons: 12 feet of 12-gauge speaker wire was not enough to do 2 speakers and definitely not enough for 4 speakers.

Was rather upset when I had to go to my local store to get RCA cables. When I was there, every kit had RCA cables included. It seems like a lot if money to not include everything needed for your amp to work fully.

Good Enough

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good kit but was surprised to find out that there was no RCA cables in this kit, I assumed for the price it would have the RCA cables included, other than that its cool.

Pros: Nice kit with most of everything included

Cons: NO RCA CABLE!!!
