Our take on the Rockford Fosgate RFK8

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 RFK8 amplifier power wiring kit supplies everything you'll need to send power to amplifiers with fuse ratings of up to 60 amperes. Rockford Fosgate makes the 8-gauge cable from 100% pure crystal-oxygen free copper wire so you can count on maximum signal transfer.

good kit could be better

Written By Mark W, Wichita, KS on Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
good kit. cables were long enough to reach amp in trunk, but the provided connectors were too wide for the amp I purchased. so I had to go to a local stereo shop to get connectors that would work.
Pros:
good kit. cables were long enough for my job
Cons:
connectors provided were too wide for amp that was purchased

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The components that came with the wiring kit where made of quality products but did not include RCA cables so i had to make an extra trip to get a set, so i would recommend buying a kit that includes everything you need.
Pros:
Quality Product
Cons:
Missing RCA cables

Great Product

High end kit at a decent price. Only problem is the kit doesn't come with RCA patch cables (WHY?). I didn't notice this and had to buy some inferior ones locally to continue my install.
Pros:
High end
Cons:
No RCA's.

Worth the extra money

Written By johnnybgood, NW Iowa on Monday, November 07, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This kit costs a little extra, but is well worth the cost. There's a reason some kits are $20 and others are $50. You get what you pay for and it doesn't make sense to short change your several hundred or thousand dollar system for the sake of $20-$30.
Pros:
High quality components
Cons:
Cost
