About the Crutchfield CK12

Deliver the power your system deserves

Crutchfield's 12-gauge amplifier wiring kit contains the wire and hardware necessary to supply power safely, efficiently, and economically to a high-power radio or a power pack drawing less than 30-amps. This wiring kit does not include RCA patch cables, a remote turn-on lead, 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 140 watts RMS, or a Class D amp with up to 220 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.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great kit for installing the Sony 45 Watt receiver that suggested a direct battery connection. Did not use the 12 gauge butt connector, as the battery lead had to connect to the Sony wiring harness wire that was probably 18 gauge wire. Used a closed end connector so I could twist the wires and crimp for a foolproof connection. To install the plastic grommet you will need a 5/16 inch hole drilled through the firewall. The twist ties were somewhat light weight, so used heavier ones for more secure placement. Otherwise, a great kit.

Always Use a Cruchfield Amp Wiring Kit

Crutchfield customer from Palm Harbor, FL on 5/20/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Always get a Crutchfield amp wiring kit when installing a new amp. Their kits are really high quality and the pricing is so much cheaper than using other brand named amp wiring kits. Not sure why everyone doesn't use them, but I always will. I highly recommend.

Pros: Quality better than or equal to brand named kits, price is outstanding, has everything you need.

Cons: None.

Nice kit by why the short ground wire? I had to splice it to reach an adequate ground location. Please make the ground wire longer!

Pros: It works

Cons: It requires splicing or locating a closer ground than I had. Perhaps your location is more suited but measure carefully or be prepared to improvise.

Power wire too short for Tacoma Double Cab

Richard from Sandown, NH on 9/8/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Good quality but, not long enough for the Tacoma Double Cab. Ran the power wire using the most direct route possible from the battery to the amp I installed behind rear passenger seat at a point near the passenger side door. However, the wire was a foot short. Unfortunately, didn't realize this until after I fished the wire through the firewall, so had to splice in an extension in order to reach the amp. Hard to believe Crutchfield was not aware of this and hasn't added 4 feet to the wire; Double Cab trucks have been around for a long time.

Pros: Good quality

Cons: Power wire not long enough

Very nice wire for wiring amp to battery. Everything you need to connect with additional fuses if needed. Power cord was twice as long as needed, just cut to size. Rung connector on power wire was to small for battery post, just drilled larger.

Pros: Very long power wire. Great quality. Everything you need

Cons: Ring connector was to small for battery, just drilled larger.

The kit itself is superb. 5 star. The 3 star rating comes from the sales person telling me I needed this kit to wire in my stereo from scratch, after I said I'm not using an amp. Didn't need heavy gauge power wire to run a feed line to the fuse box. Wasted money.

My fault for not reading the description all the way but why would an amplifier wire kit not come with a rca cable set to hook amp to the radio? This is the first product I have bought through many years with Crutchfield that I have been disappointed in. Definitely not worth the money.

Pros: What is there is decent quality

Cons: Doesn't have everything you need to hook radio up to the amplifier

Nice wiring kit

Chris from Huntsville, AL on 10/22/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Nice product. Gauge wire is adequate for small powered subwoofer or small amp.

Pros: Kit contains most everything needed for standard installation and even included a few extra pieces that came in handy.

Cons: 17' of power wire was barely enough to run from the battery to the amp while the ground wire was well more than enough. Maybe adding a couple more feet power wire and reducing the ground wire length will make it easier for future installers. No remote wire? (Package indicated it was included and Crutchfield priority mailed some to me.) Cannot properly install an amp withowithout remote wire and should be part of the package.

Wiring worked fine, but instructions inconsistent on contents.

Crutchfield customer from Lincoln, NE on 10/2/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The instructions indicate there should be a wire for the remote 'turn-on' lead. It even describes it in the package contents - 18 gauge blue wire. But there was no wire for the remote turn on included in my package. I ended up having to use my own wiring for the remote power-on trigger functions. I will say I was able to get the job completed, but I would have been a lot more annoyed if I didn't already have the wire on-hand. Looking now at the picture - it doesn't show this wire, but it says on the documentation it is supposed to be in there, and it is an essential piece to properly wiring up your subwoofer. Before submitting I did a once over on the description online. Which indicates this wire is not included. So, make up your mind, please.

I had originally purchased a different wiring kit. When it arrived, it appeared to be more than I required for my set-up. I called the Crutchfield team and described my set-up. They agreed that the original wiring kit was oversized for my application and recommended this kit. They exchanged my wiring kits and even saved me some money. This kit was perfectly suited for my application. Another great Crutchfield product coupled with OUTSTANDING customer support!

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Nice kit with quality wire but unfortunately does not include a spool of smaller gauge wire for the remote 12V line (on/off feature for amps). SO needed to spend 8 dollars at a local Pep Boys to complete the job.

Pros: Good Quality wire, soft and easy to run

Cons: No 15-20FT. Remote wire included, which is needed for proper amp operation

Good quality and plenty of length to reach from my battery to trunk in 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis, a long car! Could use a 12 volt on lead if you amp requires it. Extra trip to auto parts store. You will also need connectors to fit your amp.

Pros: Good length power lead to battery. Quality materials.

Cons: No power on lead.
