Our take on the Rockford Fosgate RFK8i

by Buck Pomerantz
Rockford Fosgate

This wiring kit does not include speaker wire, so you'll need to purchase that separately to complete your amp installation. This kit includes patch cables for a 2-channel or mono amp — you'll need to add cables for multi-channel amps.

Your amp needs big power wires in order to deliver top performance to your sound system. Rockford Fosgate's RFK8i amplifier power and signal wiring kit supplies everything you'll need to send power and input signals 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.

I Can Recommend This Product

Written By ZLH, Aurora, CO on Thursday, December 15, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
There really isn't anything overly bad that I can say about this installation kit. The wires and cables seem to be high quality and work fantastic. I do have to agree with other reviewers in the fact that the power wire could be longer (probably by a minimum of three more feet). I would like to give the product four stars instead of five because of this but it wouldn't be fair; I purchased it knowing that the wire is only 17 feet long and that it would be a slightly tight fit. It did, fit, however (it's in a 2000 Honda Accord 4dr, if you're wondering). I can definitely recommend this product.
Pros:
The quality of the components.
Cons:
The mounting bracket for the fuse seems flimsy, and the first one I received was done so in a broken form. Crutchfield did replace this with no questions asked, however.

Good quality cable and fuse holder. I ran out of length on the power cable. Be sure to measure. Large SUV's probably need a 20-25 ft power cable.

High Quality Connection

Written By Larry K, Howell, Mi on Thursday, May 26, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Since being in school for electrical engineering I'm always looking for the best quality I can find for my systems. Rockford Fosgate shines through again with this great wiring kit!

Very high quality power cable that is durable yet flexible making it easy to hide away in the increasingly more difficult to wire up cars of today.

Great RCA cables with a solid connection, no interference whatsoever.

Kit came with everything I needed and I can say it all came out great, plenty of power for my 600Watt amp pushing 1 sub at 2 ohms stable.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Outstanding in every way. Well engineered and designed. I did not receive the
assortment of connectors that is pictured, though I had what I needed for the job. The
insulation on the RCA cord and power cord are soft and supple making routing a breeze.
It is a bit expensive, especially compared to alternative products. But if you're the type
that doesn't mind paying for the best, you won't be disappointed.

You bought an amp, you NEED THIS! Period. It includes everything to wire your new amp properly. Without this kit it would have taken me twice as long, easy, to have gotten all my cables sorted and connections just right. Everything I needed was here. Everything. Did I say that enough? Everything. (Besides tools)

RF quality

Written By Adam, Tuscaloosa, AL on Sunday, September 28, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The wire in this kit is very flexible and easy to push through grommets and pull through small spaces. The strand density is top notch too. Wire length is more than enough for full size suv's unless you're wasteful. No speaker wire is included and the miscellaneous connectors are much fewer than indicated in the pictures but I didn't need any. The fuse is a more readily available design compared to other kits and that was the main reason I purchased it.

This has some good heavy wire and just about everything you need. In the "What's In The Box?" caption it lists a bunch of misc. connectors that you can use for speakers and some other wiring. Well I
had hoped this product had those speaker connections but it only came with one. Now I have
to go to the store and get several. Also, ended up pulling apart the 60A fuse because it's such a tight fit. Just a couple of set backs.

Great package

Written By Todd, Michigan on Saturday, March 15, 2008
 
Kit comes with everything you need. Nice quality cable. The fuse is a normal inline fuse so if it blows you just replace it with a fuse at a local retail store, no need to order a special fuse. Would be nice if they would of included a spare fuse, but no biggie. Also no speaker wire included.


I have this hook up to an Alpine M450 pushing 400watts to a JL 10w3v3 at 2ohm and works fine.
