Our take on the StreetWires Power Station PSK04Ri

by Ken Nail

StreetWires Power Station amp kits provide the insulated power cables, fuses and connectors you need to install your amplifier and add an impressive, professional edge to your installation. Fine-strand, silver-plated oxygen-free wire reduces interference, so your power flows clean and pure at higher power levels.

The Power Station PSK04Ri amp wiring kit handles amplifier systems with a rating of up to 600 watts, and includes a stereo patch cable with built-in turn-on lead for hooking up the audio signal from your receiver. Each 4-gauge power and ground cable is protected by a durable, Poly Flex jacket, and the cables are finished with nickel-plate ring terminals for a secure connection to your amplifier. Streetwires also includes a firewall bushing, and assorted connectors and cable ties.

Features

General Overview: This is a single amplifier wiring kit that includes the power and ground cables, interconnect cable with integrated turn-on lead, and accessories required to install one amplifier. Speaker wire is sold separately.

In-line Fuse Holder: The in-line fuse holder is waterproof and comes with a 100-amp AFS fuse. The fuse holder's set screw input and output accept bare 4-gauge wire (no ring terminal required). Integrated tabs allow you to mount the fuse holder using optional self-tapping screws. The fuse holder has the following dimensions: L=3.335", W=1.887" (including integrated mounting tabs), H=0.994".

Note: The set screws require 3mm and 5/32" Allen wrenches.

Power and Ground Cables: The 4-gauge power cable has a translucent blue insulation jacket while the 4-gauge ground cable has a clear insulation jacket.

Interconnect Cable: The interconnect cable has a clear insulation jacket. An 18-gauge wire is attached to the interconnect cable for use as a remote turn-on lead, so you don't have to run an extra wire.

Crimp-on Terminal Dimensions: The crimp-on terminals have the following dimensions:

  • Power Ring Terminal (installed): W=0.655", Inner Diameter=0.335"
  • Ground Ring Terminal (installed): W=0.655", Inner Diameter=0.199"
  • 4-gauge Spade Terminals: W=0.515", Prong Spacing=0.253"
  • 18-gauge Spade Terminal: W=0.275", Prong Spacing=0.147"

Tough Stuff

Written By J-Rod, Russellville, AR on Tuesday, September 07, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Cable is great legnth, i even had some extra. nice and flexable for putting in tight
locations yet firm enough to not be difficult in running. make sure you have some heavy
duty wire cutters or a saw. i ended up having to use some heavy duty pipe cutters
because i didnt have the proper tools. lol

Great power cables, junk RCAs

Written By Aaron, San Diego, CA on Sunday, May 23, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Dan's review hit the nail on the head- perfectly functional kit, but the included audio cables were junk. StreetWires offers the same kit for $20 less that doesn't have the patch cable, and that's the route I'd go next time (Crutchfield item # is 211PSK04R, no 'i'). I ended up stripping the two RCA wires off the turn-on lead (they're all attached), using the lead, and spending another $25 on quality patch cables.
That being said, the power connectors are good quality, the directions were clearly written, and the power wires are amazingly flexible for being 4-gauge. Stick with this brand, just save yourself the trouble of buying audio cables twice.

Nice amp kit - could be better

Written By Dan, Sioux Falls, SD on Wednesday, August 30, 2006
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased this amp wiring kit as the wires seemed to be the right length and I was not wild about the idea of trying to crimp/solder a ring terminal on #4 wire (the ring terminals come pre-crimped on the power and ground wires in this kit).

Overall, it gets the job done. The wire was flexible enough to facilitate easy installation. There were a few quirks:
- The positive ring terminal was too big to sit flat on my positive battery cable ('02 Accord). I had to wrench down on the battery terminal bolt to smash things in place.
- The crimp job on the positive cable appears to be of sufficient mechanical strength, but I have concerns about the 1/3" gap between the end of the insulation and the beginning of the ring terminal. This gap allows another area for moisture to enter the wire.
- One end of the fuse holder does not close all the way.
- The RCA cables included are rather flimsy.

If I had to do it again I'd probably buy the components (wire, fuse holder, terminals, RCA cables) separately and do the work myself, although going this route would surely increase the end cost.
