Our take on the Rockford Fosgate RFK4

by Buck Pomerantz
Rockford Fosgate

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.

Your amp needs big power wires in order to deliver top performance to your sound system. Rockford Fosgate's RFK4 amplifier power wiring kit supplies everything you'll need to send power to amplifiers with fuse ratings of up to 100 amperes. Rockford Fosgate makes the 4-gauge cable from 100% pure crystal-oxygen free copper wire so you can count on maximum signal transfer.

Written By Ed, LA on Thursday, July 31, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a nice kit and the wire is exceptional. Everything needed for installation is in the kit. Comes with a 100 amp fuse so if you need a smaller size you will have to purchase one. And, if you need a larger size better check into a different option. Larger size fuses are not compatible with this fuse holder. The 17' power cable may come as a challenge if you have a crew cab truck. It worked in mine with no wire to spare. I would recommend making a closely accurate measurement from where you will mount the power amp and the route you will be taking before purchasing.
Pros:
Nice kit. Exceptional quality. Has all the necessities without paying extra for unnecessary frills.
Cons:
Make sure your amp doesn't need a larger than 100 amp fuse. Wire length may be a challenge if you don't do some pre-measurements. Especially on crew cab trucks.

Great Wiring Kit

Written By BlameTheBird, Destin, Florida on Friday, April 25, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This cable is very flexible, which made it easy to run through my truck. The plastic firewall grommet that comes with this takes a 5/8" hole and then the cable fits loosely through it. I went and got a 1/2" rubber grommet, and then dressed out the opening so that the cable would just slide though the hole. I attached the power cable straight to the tightening bolt on the battery terminal without having to modify the attached connector and was able to attach the 2' long negative cable to a seat mounting bolt once I filed the hole in the attached connector out a little. Overall, a nice setup, other than the fact that it came with a 100 amp fuse and my amp recommended an 80 amp fuse. A little pricy, but with the 50% off deal from Crutchfield when I bought this at the same time as I bought a power amp made it very worth the price.
Pros:
17' long positive cable was plenty long to wire my pickup truck. Supple cabling is easy to run.
Cons:
Plastic grommet seems a bit lacking.

Limited connection options

Written By Jjkinsd, San Marcos, CA on Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Wire is great quality, provides power where you need it! Came with enough power and ground wire to wire a distribution block and two amps, so that's a plus!
Pros:
Quality
Cons:
Not enough crimp connectors for the #4 power and ground wire for one amp! In my opinion, at the price of this kit, you should be provided with more connection options as these can be hard to find around town. (I paid half price since I purchased with amp, thanks Crutchfield)

Perfect kit for sound board

Written By Keith, Marrero, LA on Saturday, February 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great package as wire and fuse was nothing like they used to put out with their amps. I ran it to a power distribution block to serve as the source power for all of my components. Everything was mounted to a piece of 1/2" MDF board so there was no need to run separate wiring for my subwoofer amp and sound processor.
Pros:
Nice, complete package, 100 amp fuse was perfect as I had 2 other components running off of the souce power it provided. Easy to handle wire that also went through a spare grommet in the firewall.
Cons:
It did not have a spare fuse; though you should not blow one anyway, it's still nice to have so you are not down should it blow for some reason.

Nice Kit.

Written By Kevin, Mesa, AZ. on Saturday, June 19, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a nice kit and made it easy to wire in my new JL XD 600/6 amp. I was worried that the power and ground wires were a bit to short for my 2001 Chevy Silverado Z71 extended cab. However, there was plenty of wire for both the ground and power to wire in the amp under the back seat. The large gauge wire was plenty flexable to run around corners in the truck. The only downfall I can see it that I had to get a better firewall bushing to run the power wire to make sure it did not get nicked. I also replaced the included 100 amp fuse with a 60 amp fuse since JL recomended a 50 amp fuse if you run a single XD 600/6. Save your time running all over town getting wires and get this kit.
