Our take on the T-Spec V10-DAK4 Installation Kit

by Buck Pomerantz
T-Spec

This wiring kit does not include speaker wire. You will need to purchase that separately, in order to complete your amplifier installation.

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, two 17-foot stereo patch cables, two distribution blocks, a fuse holder, and an assortment of hardware useful for your installation.

T-Spec 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.

T-Spec V10-DAK4

Written By LaNeedles, Poughkeepsie, NY on Thursday, July 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
A beautiful dual amp install kit, and the ONLY one I could find that comes with a 125 amp fuse. Since I am running two alpine amps which both have dual 30 amp fuses this purchase was a no brainer.
Pros:
Great quality product utilizing the best materials insuring a hassle free install.
Cons:
no cons.
