Get the right wire for your amp

The PA4BX wiring kit from EFX will supply your car amplifier with the wiring necessary for receiving its signal and powering up. The 4-gauge power and ground cables ensure that your amp gets all the power it needs to play music at its full potential. The ground cable features EFX's Ultimate Ground Terminal, which attaches to your vehicle's chassis by way of 3 self-tapping screws (included) to make sure you get a tight physical and electrically secure ground connection.

This wiring kit works with amplifiers with between about 450 to 1100 watts RMS of total output power. Please check your amplifier's installation instructions to confirm the proper size wire to use. The kit includes a stereo RCA patch cable, remote turn-on lead, in-line fuseholder, fuse, and an assortment of connectors and hardware to help with your amp's installation.

This wiring kit does not include speaker wires. You will need to purchase those separately, in order to complete your amplifier installation. This kit includes patch cables for a 2-channel or mono amp — you'll need to add cables for multi-channel amps.

Product Highlights:

  • amplifier wiring kit with power, ground, and audio connections
  • 17-foot blue 4-gauge power cable
  • 2-foot black 4-gauge ground cable with Ultimate Ground Terminal
  • 17-foot blue remote turn-on lead

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this for my first install. Everything I needed was there, plus a few extra little components that I didn't end up needing/using. Used it to run a 2000W 5-Channel amp with a 600W sub (speakers pending), and everything works/sounds amazing.

Nice quality kit, plenty of length and the wire is of nice quality! Made my install easy!

Pros: Good quality wire.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit is good. All cables are good quality. It came up short on the power wire though in an 09 Impala. Other than that, good quality.

Pros: Wood quality cables

Cons: Power cord came up short

Great Quality!

Great quality product. I found cheaper but after looking at this one when it arrived it's definitely best deal for $$$

Pros: Great quality!

Cons: Would have liked a few more 4 gauge connectors to add for a capacitor etc.

Works fine

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

No problems using this kit. Recommended by an advisor. Price was right. Installed in a 2014 Accord 4 door. In my opinion the power lead wasn't very long. Ran it to the trunk and mounted to the back of the rear seat. only 8"-12" left. Not much wiggle room. The lead for the ground was very short as well.

Pros:

Cons:

No foresight in design

Written by: Mike from New York on August 25, 2015

Looked alright out of the box, and it came with a set of RCA cables, which I needed so I figured it was a good deal. Not so. First of all, the ground terminal on the less than generous length of ground wire does not fit on any bolts you might find in/near the trunk of a car. I should not have to drill new holes in my chassis when there are plenty of perfectly good grounds in the area. Pressed for time I shoved it as far behind one of these as I could for now. Finish up everything and go to install the fuse in the block and reconnect the battery. Once the fuse is installed there is no way to tighten the screw one side slides into. It looks like there was supposed to be a hole there that wasn't drilled. It's pitch black out at this point and don't have time. Backed the screw out just enough to wiggle the fuse under and held it down by tightening the end cap of the block. Whatever. Went to connect the +battery, discovered the hole in the end was too small to fit over the screw on my 75 series battery, which aren't exactly uncommon. Was forced to drill it out only to find the connector wasn't long enough to allow clearance between the car's +12v and the battery terminal. I ended up having to use the 8 gauge wire from my old Kicker kit that ran from the fuse block to the battery. Now I can't safely push my equipment because of the bottleneck. Nothing I've ever had from the Scosche brand has been quality or a proper fit. Not worth the savings. Ruined install of an $1,100 system.

Pros: - Came with RCA cables. - It's a pair of 4 gauge wires.

Cons: - No thought put into the designs of the connectors. - Poor quality control. - Does not fit a common 75 series battery.

Everything needed was included besides speaker wire, but that is relatively cheap and available on the site.

Pros: RCA wires

Cons: No speaker wires

Needs a longer ground

Written by: NCLK from North Carolina on July 25, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this to hook up my bass and amp in a boat - the advisor suggested this wire kit - problem is on a boat - you will likely need a longer ground if you mount the amp away from the engine and closer to the head unit. This kit is for a car - they need to mention this as I lost a week of my install time waiting for a 17' ground cable.

Pros: Good quality cable

Cons: Needs a longer ground for boat use.

Great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Everything worked great and seems to function flawlessly

Pros: All wire is quality and was easy to install

Cons: No fuse was in the box but they sent me two for free and the guy was very nice and helpful also the ground wire was shorter than I would have liked

Good install kit

Written by: KCHahn from Colorado on May 5, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good kit, that made installing a Kenwood amplifier fairly easy.

Pros: Plenty of Blue(hot) power cable to get from battery to back of extra cab Ranger. RCA cables plenty long also, as was the Auto On connection wire, between the Radio and the Amplifier.

Cons: Ground cable too short, depending on mounting location. Extra fuse would have been handy, since I blew mine by accident. Didn't use many of the other parts. Ran my cable through hood release cable plug, so I didn't need the grommet.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Exactly as described, came with connectors and everything you need to wire your amplifier.

Pros: Copper, good length of wire for positive, rca and remote.

Cons: Be careful, it's easy to strip the connections on the fuse block, very short ground cable, and the zip ties included break if you try to really tighten them down.

short ground cable

Written by: jorge from 99301 on February 27, 2015

Overall first impressions on this kit is ok. It came in a plain white box not very impressive. Quality doesn't seem bad but I couldnt find out if it was 100% oxygen free copper which for the price it should be. The ground cable is way short. I guess i should've read more carefully but for the price that seems a little stingy imo. Other than thay no complains.

Great quality at a great price. Crutchfield comes through again!

Pros: Plenty of accessories included in this kit Power wire was the perfect length for my 07 double cab tacoma Instructions help during install

Cons: Ground wire worked for my situation but could be short in other situations. Power cable fuse housing could have a better design that is more waterproof. (Thinking about adding silicone to mine to waterproof)

Good option if you are clueless, like me.

Pros: As advertised.

This kit has everything you need to hook up your high power amp.

Pros: The cables are very flexable and has a very high strand count.

wiring kit review 4g

Written by: Bosco from Sacramento California on October 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I upgraded the free 8g wiring kit to the 4g kit when I purchased the clutch field amp. Customer service was superb as always and they prorated the upgrade for me. As for the kit, the 4G wire is great, but one little thing, hence the one star minus is the 2ch patch rca, the 8g kit has gold plated connector and the 4G kit only comes with, assuming nickel rca connectors. Make no sense since the 4G is 30 dollars more. But I ended up using that for my sub so it's all good.

Pros: Price

Cons: Rca patch cable

Exactly as advertised

I believe so but cannot be sure. I would call into Crutchfield and have them chase [ TRACY  Jul 01, 2015 ]
Yes, I am using two of these wiring kits, one for my JL JX500/1D amp that powers my JL TW1 10" sub and one for my JX360/2 amp that powers my JL C2650. I've had them installed for over a year now and I am very happy with this product, it comes with everything you need for the install. I switched out the fuses to T-SPEC V8 Mini-ANL Fuses because the kit comes with 100A fuse and I wanted to go with something closer to what the amp was rated for. [ THOMAS  Jul 01, 2015 ]
