Deliver the power your amp deserves

Deliver the power your amp deserves

Crutchfield's 10-gauge amplifier wiring kit contains the wire and hardware necessary to supply power to your amplifier safely, efficiently, and economically. This wiring kit does not include RCA patch cables or speaker wire. You may need to purchase those items separately, in order to complete your installation.

Power ratings and amp efficiency

Most amplifiers come in two distinct "Classes" of technology with different efficiencies and power wire size requirements. Class AB amps typically feature 50% to 60% efficiency, while Class D amps are usually 75% to 80% efficient. This Crutchfield wiring kit was designed to accommodate the energy demands of a Class AB amplifier with a total output of up to about 210 watts RMS, or a Class D amp with up to 325 watts RMS output.

CTA-2015 Compliant

Crutchfield wire

Crutchfield wire is made of oxygen-free copper, with no impurities that could raise its resistance to a signal's flow or add interference. Crutchfield wire meets all Consumer Technology Association (CTA-2015) standards for size, resistance, and insulation quality.

I purchased an amplifier.....I need wiring to hook it up. The manufacturer recommends a 10 gauge wiring kit, (despite costing more and negating the 25% discount that I would have gotten had I selected the 12 gauge kit that your web site recommended), I tend to feel more confident using thicker wiring where I can....I've seen problems from using wires that are too thin, but I don't often see problems from using wiring that is "too thick"....piece of mind is worth a little extra cash.

I found the Crutchfield website to be the most informative while doing my research for my custom motorcycle audio project. After identifying several combinations of receivers, amps, and speakers that would work for my application, I called Crutchfield's service representatives to help me determine the best possible combination to meet my needs. Conrad was amazingly patient and knowledgeable, answering my questions and helping me find the exact combination that I wanted to maximize my project. [ Kenneth  Aug 17, 2017 ]

I have used Crutchfield every time I upgrade my vehicle because you have always included everything needed to install myself however I was surprised I had to purchase wiring kit for $22+ to install the powered sub I purchased, I've purchased two powered subs from you in the past and this kit was included. The reason I always look to Crutchfield first is because everything used to be included, I hope we customers don't lose that. that is what separates you from the rest. [ Joe  May 12, 2017 ]

The fuse holder itself does not need terminals. Instead, the wire fits in both ends of the fuse holder and is held in place by locking screws.

As I recall it doesn't so you have to dig them up yourself. Easy installation tho.
