Our take on the StreetWires ZeroNoise 3 ZN3K-08

by Buck Pomerantz

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.

StreetWires uses a blend of oxygen-free copper and copper-coated aluminum wires in their ZeroNoise 3 power cables, so your amp gets maximum power at a minimum price. ZN3 cables meet the strict CEA-2015 standards for strand count so you can be sure you'll get all the electrical conductivity and sonic transparency you demand in your power applications.

This 8-gauge amp kit includes the insulated ground and power cables, fuseholder and fuse, remote turn-on lead, and the connectors you'll need to power an amplifier with a fuse rating of up to 60 amperes.

Wiring kit package

Written By Brian, West Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday, July 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Following a few attempts to work with the connectors I used my own professional grade connectors and heat shrink, much better. The fuse holder is a strange device at best but I made it work. I have a trunk mounted battery and amplifier so the power run is nice and short. The blue antenna trigger wire is plenty long to reach into the cabin at the head unit. If this kit only included the RCA preamp out cables it would be the perfect installation kit. I would purchase this kit again for future projects.
Pros:
Overall the wiring is of good quality and has low resistance when tested with an OHM meter. Plenty of wire is supplied in this kit as well.
Cons:
The enclosed spade connectors did not easily fit onto my amplifier. The provided insulation on the connectors was low quality and did not seal tightly following crimping.

Does the job

The kit works fine to deliver power. Just remember to get RCA wires. The set screws for the fuse (allen head) gave me no troubles, but I have both English and metric allen wrenches (sorry, I don't recall which set I needed).
Pros:
Good 8-gauge wire. The set screws for the fuse (allen head) gave me no troubles.
Cons:
Odd fuse.

This kit well definitely get your system up and running but really needs some upgrades. The hardware supplied is not the greatest so I used my own personal connectors.
Pros:
Complete kit in one box, speaker and power wires are good quality, and easy to set up.
Cons:
Hardware needs to be upgraded, fuse casing is somewhat confusing, directions not very clear.

Purchase this for a Alpine MRV-M500 amp. Did not want to spend a fortune on the wiring kit. This one fit my needs. Fair quality, appropriate for the price. Powers the amp just fine.
Pros:
Price
Cons:
Need to purchase RCA cables separately.

Meh, worked in the end

Written By Bdsn, Anchorage, AK on Thursday, March 07, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Had a lot of trouble with this. The instructions were almost gibberish, the connectors they included were junk, the one for the battery was not the right size (thanks crutchfield), so I had to get to an auto parts store after ripping my car apart for the install. It worked in the end, but it took a couple hours more than it should have. Would probably buy this locally next time.
Pros:
Worked in the end.
Cons:
Instructions, connectors.

Not bad but could be better

Written By Rick, Rosamond, CA on Wednesday, January 09, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The package contains a couple connectors, the stated wiring, and a nice fuse holder however the fuse is an odd style so I'm worried about finding a replacement if it ever blows. Also, the screws on the fuse holder used hold the fuse in are non-standard allen style. I ended up using a torq style screwdriver to tighten the connections. Other than that, the wire length was sufficient for my son's 2102 Civic 4 door sedan with room to spare.
Pros:
Sufficient wire included in the package
Cons:
non-standard connections on the fuse, odd shaped fuse that may be hard to find, no tools included in kit to properly fit the odd screws

Fuse??

Written By Matthew, Santee, CA on Saturday, December 22, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I gave this a 4 stars generally because the fuse to me is shotty the way you have to install it. IMO, you don't have a hook fuse on a tube screw tight connector because you can't get your driver in there to screw down the fuse tight and then insert it into the sealed cylinder. So basically I have a semi loose fuse in my fuse holder...not a good idea IMO of course.Anyhow, its a quality kit.
Pros:
Good build quality, inexpensive
Cons:
Fuse holder needs to be changed or use different fuses.

Decent

Written By Danny T, Frisco, Texas on Sunday, December 02, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If you are expecting a whole kit - this just goes back to the same old adage, if something is too good to be true . . . What did I expect for the price?, but just remember that the price WILL go up if you use this kit. Mine ended up being just over $80 when done as I spent $35 on some decent RCA leads and then went and got better terminal ends as the ones this kit had were not to my liking as even with a good crimp tool I was not confident that they would keep a solid hold and connection to the cables.
Pros:
Just know what you are getting, if you prefer to pick your own RCA leads instead of buying whatever comes in a kit, this is a good option. Mainly because there are not too many that offer this. In the end, I am more satisfied and have better looking and sounding cables going into the amp.
Cons:
the terminal ends were cheap and I ended going to a store that installs to get better ones.

Good product for the price, but what's with the fuse?

Written By Steve H, Nashua, NH on Friday, September 07, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I've got a 300 watt rms amp and this does the job just fine, once you can figure out the fuse. I've never seen the style fuse used in this product and I have to be honest, I am not sure where I can find another one if it blows. I think I will end up purchasing a different inline fuse eventually. I knew the package didn't include RCA's and wasn't an issue anyways since I am keeping the OEM head unit and tapping into the speaker channel.
Pros:
Does the trick. Inexpensive.
Cons:
Fuse is odd, can't think of a place to purchase more if it blows.

Don't forget your RCA cables...

Written By Jason, Redmond, WA on Wednesday, June 29, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If you're going to get this kit make sure you don't forget to pick up RCA cables as well... I ordered this and didn't realize it didn't come with RCA cables. I pulled the interior out of my Subaru before checking the package, then halfway through the install realized that I now have to make a drive into the city to pick up some RCA's ... Pretty frustrating.

This is a decent wiring kit, everything is the right size, they don't label it 8 guage and give you 10... Its got some very nice extras that come along with it. I would recommend this for anyone looking to put in any type of sub or subs that are not above about 400rms, great kit, does the job
