Our take on the Kicker PKD1

by Buck Pomerantz
Kicker

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

This kit delivers all the power your multi-amp system needs

Your amplifiers need hefty power and ground wiring wiring in order to deliver the big power you want. Kicker's PKD1 multi-amp wiring kit includes the basic power, ground, and turn-on wiring for any amp system with a total fuse rating of up to 200 amperes. This kit is suitable for a system with a total output of about 1300 watts RMS for Class AB amps or about 2000 watts RMS for Class D amps.

The kit includes a 17-foot 1/0-gauge power wire that runs from your battery to the included distribution block, along with two 4-foot lengths of 4-gauge wire that'll readily accommodate two amplifiers. Kicker makes all their wires from oxygen-free copper so you can count on maximum power and signal transfer with minimum resistance or interference.

The PKD1 kit also includes Kicker's DB4 power distribution block, which takes the 1/0-gauge input and sends it to four outputs (4- to 8-gauge) — you can power up to four amplifiers with the one main power cable that runs from your battery. The DB4 block features a second 1/0-gauge input so you can daisy-chain another distribution block or amplifier into your system, if you want to expand later.

Features

Dual Amplifier 1/0-AWG Kit: This kit includes the following:

  • One 17' length of 1/0-gauge power wire (terminated on one end by a 7/8" wide, 5/16" diameter ring-terminal)
  • One 4' length of 4-gauge ground wire (terminated on both ends by a 5/8" wide, 5/16" diameter ring-terminal); this wire will be cut into two pieces, each with a ring terminal on one end, to supply ground wires for two amps
  • One 4' length of 4-gauge power wire; this wire will be cut into two pieces to supply power wires for two amps (connected between the distribution block and the amps)
  • One 17' length of 16-gauge remote turn-on lead
  • AFS fuse holder
  • 200A AFS fuse (installed)
  • One power distribution block with two ports for up to 1/0-gauge wire and four ports for up to 4-gauge wire; all six ports are shorted together, so any combination of them can be used
  • Two 7/8" self-tapping ground screws with flat washers
  • One plastic grommet
  • Six 5" wire ties
  • One red butt-connector

Hyper-Flex Power Cable: The power and ground wires feature Hyper-Flex jackets for easy installation. Four feet of the power wire is covered with a wire loom to protect it in the engine compartment.

Silver Tinned OFC Copper: The power and ground cables are silver tinned OFC copper. The 1/0-gauge is 4704 strand wire, the 4-gauge is 1862 strand wire.

Fuse Holder: The fuse holder requires a 5mm Allen wrench to secure the input and output wires, and to change the fuse. There are four holes in the base for mounting and the dimensions are approximately:

  • Width: 3-1/2" (without adding for the wires)
  • Height: 1-3/8"
  • Depth: 1-5/8"

Distribution Block: The power distribution block has two 1/0-gauge inputs and four 4-gauge outputs. Each port will also accommodate smaller wire (smaller that 8-gauge not recommended). All six ports are shorted together, so any combination of them can be used. The dimensions are approximately:

  • Width: 2-3/4"
  • Height: 1-1/4"
  • Depth: 1-7/8" (without adding for the wires)

Nice Kit

Written By Carey, Waverly on Saturday, March 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a nice amp kit if you want to run two amps. There was enough wire to effortlessly run power and ground to two amps. High quality components with this kit.
Pros:
Everything was there to get power and ground to two amps.
Cons:
No RCA cables come with this kit. For the price I expected to see them in the kit and be able to completely hook up two amps, not just run power to them.
