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 PSK08Ri amp wiring kit handles amplifier systems with a rating of up to 300 watts, and includes a stereo patch cable with built-in turn-on lead for hooking up the audio signal from your receiver. Each 8-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.

Note: One stereo patch cable is provided — you'll need a second patch cable if you're installing a 4-channel amp.

Product Research


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 60-amp AFS fuse. The fuse holder's set screw input and output accept bare 8-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=3.218", W=1.887" (including integrated mounting tabs), H=0.994".

Note: The set screws require a 3mm Allen wrench.

Power and Ground Cables: The 8-gauge power cable has a translucent red insulation jacket while the 8-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=0.592", Inner Diameter=0.335"
  • Ground Ring Terminal (installed): W=0.477", Inner Diameter=0.216"

could be better for the $$$

Written By mike, pa on Thursday, August 26, 2010

so i decided to spend the money figuring it would have everything i would need. maybe my pioneer amp is an anomaly, but IMO for the money this kit should be equipped for most mainstream amps. So here's my beef:

spade connectors are the wrong size for my amp. so now i have to buy a pack of 10 spade connectors for a few bucks. why not put multiple sized spade connectors in the pack......

turn on wire is the exact same length as the rca's and it molded with them. This would be perfect if the turn on wire was next to the rca jacks....but its not, its on the other side of the amp with the power and ground, so i had to scab 6" of wire to it........why not make the turn on lead an extra 12" then it can be trimmed if not needed.....

so the components are all good quality, but IMO for the price i shouldn't need to buy more parts, and have to scab wires together.

Power Station comes up a bit short

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Don't get me wrong....I love the kit. Everything in one place is great and you know you have everything to do the job. My only problem was the length of the power cable and the RCA cables. I used this kit in a 1992 Camaro and the wires were about two feet shorter than I needed. The problem was solved by rethinking my layout but in the end it did work.

One of the RCA wires had a faulty connector so I had to go out and get another RCA. I had to much installed to removeit and send it back.
