The PA4BX wiring kit from EFX will supply your car amplifier with the wiring necessary for receiving its signal and powering up. The 4-gauge power and ground cables ensure that your amp gets all the power it needs to play music at its full potential. The ground cable features EFX's Ultimate Ground Terminal, which attaches to your vehicle's chassis by way of 3 self-tapping screws (included) to make sure you get a tight physical and electrically secure ground connection.
This wiring kit works with amplifiers with between about 450 to 1100 watts RMS of total output power. Please check your amplifier's installation instructions to confirm the proper size wire to use. The kit includes a stereo RCA patch cable, remote turn-on lead, in-line fuseholder, fuse, and an assortment of connectors and hardware to help with your amp's installation.
This wiring kit does not include speaker wires. You will need to purchase those separately, in order to complete your amplifier installation. This kit includes patch cables for a 2-channel or mono amp — you'll need to add cables for multi-channel amps.

This wiring kit was perfect. Made the installatio. Seamless.
Great kit had everything needed to get the amp working quick.
Just about all you need. 4/5 stars because no shrink tube included.
Kit was great, except RCA cables fit loosely on the amp and head unit. I had to bend and tape them to ensure they would stay secure. Everything else was top notch.
Pros: Great kit other than RCA connections.
Cons: RCA cable connections were loose.
Kit came with everything you could possibly need.
This was my first Amp Installation. I looked over many wiring kits and was blown away by the amount of kits available. This one was confirmed to work by CJ, a Crutchfield Advisor. The box was very small, but had a 17' of Power Cable, Remote Turn On Wire and RCA Signal Cables. The Ground Wire was the shortest, at 2'. For the install in my 98 K1500 Extended Cab Truck, I ran the 4 Gauge Power Cable through the Passenger Side, through the Firewall and along the panels on the Passenger Side behing the rear seat. I was able to use the included Wire Protector Loom to cover from the end of the Fuse Block to about halfway in the Passenger Door. I did have to buy more Wire Protector Loom, but I got it covered and wrapped in Electrical Tape to seal it all the way back. I routed the Remote Turn On Wire and the RCA Signal Cables through the Driver Side, also putting them in Wire Protector Loom and wrapping it in Electrical Tape. There was plenty of wire to reach from the Pioneer Stereo to behind the Rear Seat and to the Amp. The Fuse Block is attached, and after some figuring out, it was easy to put in the fuse and secure it. I did have to drill the opening on the Power Cable where it attaches to the Battery, as it was too small to fit on my Battery Post. The kit came with Wire Ties, Butt Connectors, Screws and other items, which I did not use but were handy to have. This is a great wiring kit and I would definitely recommend it!
Pros: 17' Length of Power Cable, Remote Turn On Wire, and RCA Signal Cables, 2" Ground Cable with Three Mounting Points, Incorporated Fuse Block. Includes Wire Ties, Fuse, Butt Connectors, and other Handy Items for the Installation.
This kit was handy when installing my amp, it contained everything that I needed. The reason for three stars is the fact that the short section of power cable that connects to the battery pulled out of the fuse holder during installation. The set screw wasn't tightened correctly. I'm just glad that it happened when it did, and not at some later point during use. I also felt that the included wire loom was on the thin side
Pros: Included everything I needed
Cons: Poor assembly Wire loom on the cheap side
Can't beat this kit, great price and quality
Great wiring kit for the money and powers the amp and system
Great kit. True 4-gauge copper wire. The RCA cable seems to be of decent quality.
Pros: High quality wire.
Cons: Not crazy about the fuse style.
Had everything I needed to wire up my amp. Product quality seems pretty good
Pros: Every detail was thought out for installing an amp with this kit
Cons: None at this time. My amp is kicking
Great kit for amplifier hook-up, recommended by advisor for my amp.
Pros: Everything you need to wire an amp
Awesome wiring kit!! Everything you need for an easy installation of an amp.
Excellent product. Easy to install. Instructions were on point. Tech support cannot be beat!
Pros: Easy to use.
Excellent installation kit with everything you need for an amp installation. Purchased to install an amp in a 2016 Ford Explorer.
Pros: Easy to use, everything you need.
Kit is perfect, installed in a 2008 impala all wiring was plenty long enough. Great quality wires and the 4 Guage power wire is true 4 guage.
Pros: Great wiring everything you need
Cons: Fuse block is a little aggravating to work with but is good quality
Great Quality set. Wires are killer with soft easy to form coating. Highly recommend getting this with you Amp.
Great kit! Comes with everything needed to get a sub setup. Although the ground wire is very short.
Pros: Everything needed Great quality
Cons: Very short ground cable
Well thought out package!
Pros: Well thought out parts list. Quality materials
All components worked fine and installation was.. Easy(once i figured things out) but wouldve been faster if instructions could match up for what vehicle you own and what amp you bought. It was very generic the instructions.
Cons: If youre a dip like me lol, the instructions may take you an extra 5 min.
Everything you need and more in one kit.
Pros: High quality product kit.
Made installation easy and fit great.
I'm talking about what you can feel, hear and see, the dynamic Three and Bass
Every thing you need at a great value
Pros: All you need, great value
Heavy duty gauge power and ground wires. RCA cable are quality (they don't get twisted up!) No engine noise or other outside electrical interference that destroy your signal path. I ran the power wires on the opposite side of the vehicle to the RCA input wires to ensure no interference.
Pros: Heavy duty Easy to install Don't tangle
Good quality insulated cables and wires.
Pros: Reasonably priced, good quality.
Pros: Thick OFC wire, Complete Kit, Easy to work with, Big ground wire Cons: Cheap connectors, Could definetly use 20' of power wire instead of 17' with my Crew Cab
Nice kit. Good quality. I ran the power from the battery, under the fender trim and through an existing firewall hole behind the engine. This extra routing to hide the wires left me 2.5 feet short of making it to the custom amp shelf under the parcel shelf in the trunk. Probably my fault for not measuring before, but I figured since it was a kit, it would be long enough- so I was lazy. The remote wire for the amp was plenty long, but I didn't have to run that all the way to the battery (duh).
Pros: Makes for an easy install. Everything you need, including a firewall grommet.
Cons: Power wire was too short for my needs.
Easy to install, plenty of wire.
Pros: Easy to install.
Amazing quality and got here as expected, standard shipping was fast. All cables/wires are gauged as expected and came well packaged. Nice set of accessories and work great with my 10" Kicker Comp and 1200 amp.
Pros: High quality, everything included for install, great price for what you get.
Cons: Absolutely nothing.
Great overall kit. Quality pieces. More than enough 4ga to run from the Front left at the battery along the drivers side under the carpet to under the middle rear seat. Had approx 2-3 ft left.
Pros: Well put together kit
Cons: Minor but the negative could've been another foot longer for more (better) grounding options.
one kit that had everything needed to install my amplifier. no trips to the store for forgotten connectors, extra wire, etc.
Pros: one kit that has everything needed
Great product works great!
Top quality wiring....no terminal assembly hassles...it's ready to install. Plenty of length on all wires. Ground cable is super nice.
Pros: nice quality. easy to use.
Easy installment easy to remove wiring insulation no problems at all
Pros: Allows Fast installment
Cons: Hard to ground the ground cable with its bracket
Everything worked perfectly and was exactly what I needed
I used this for my first install. Everything I needed was there, plus a few extra little components that I didn't end up needing/using. Used it to run a 2000W 5-Channel amp with a 600W sub (speakers pending), and everything works/sounds amazing.
Package has everything you need. Quality cables.
Nice quality kit, plenty of length and the wire is of nice quality! Made my install easy!
Pros: Good quality wire.
Cons: Needs to give a little more length on the ground wire I came up short considering I added a capacitor before the amp.
Perfect install kit. Everything need to do a proper installbof an amplifier
Pros: Everything included to install
Cons: You gotta find one cause I cant
I bought this product and had my hardware installed at an local car stereo shop. It had all but one item included the RCA plug-in wires.
Pros: Quality product no problems with installation.
Cons: No RCA plug-in wires.
Good: Copper, ok length of wire for positive, rca and remote. Not so Good: easy to strip the connections on the fuse block
This kit is good. All cables are good quality. It came up short on the power wire though in an 09 Impala. Other than that, good quality.
Pros: Wood quality cables
Cons: Power cord came up short
Great quality product. I found cheaper but after looking at this one when it arrived it's definitely best deal for $$$
Pros: Great quality!
Cons: Would have liked a few more 4 gauge connectors to add for a capacitor etc.
No problems using this kit. Recommended by an advisor. Price was right. Installed in a 2014 Accord 4 door. In my opinion the power lead wasn't very long. Ran it to the trunk and mounted to the back of the rear seat. only 8"-12" left. Not much wiggle room. The lead for the ground was very short as well.
Looked alright out of the box, and it came with a set of RCA cables, which I needed so I figured it was a good deal. Not so. First of all, the ground terminal on the less than generous length of ground wire does not fit on any bolts you might find in/near the trunk of a car. I should not have to drill new holes in my chassis when there are plenty of perfectly good grounds in the area. Pressed for time I shoved it as far behind one of these as I could for now. Finish up everything and go to install the fuse in the block and reconnect the battery. Once the fuse is installed there is no way to tighten the screw one side slides into. It looks like there was supposed to be a hole there that wasn't drilled. It's pitch black out at this point and don't have time. Backed the screw out just enough to wiggle the fuse under and held it down by tightening the end cap of the block. Whatever. Went to connect the +battery, discovered the hole in the end was too small to fit over the screw on my 75 series battery, which aren't exactly uncommon. Was forced to drill it out only to find the connector wasn't long enough to allow clearance between the car's +12v and the battery terminal. I ended up having to use the 8 gauge wire from my old Kicker kit that ran from the fuse block to the battery. Now I can't safely push my equipment because of the bottleneck. Nothing I've ever had from the Scosche brand has been quality or a proper fit. Not worth the savings. Ruined install of an $1,100 system.
Pros: - Came with RCA cables. - It's a pair of 4 gauge wires.
Cons: - No thought put into the designs of the connectors. - Poor quality control. - Does not fit a common 75 series battery.
Everything needed was included besides speaker wire, but that is relatively cheap and available on the site.
Pros: RCA wires
Cons: No speaker wires
Bought this to hook up my bass and amp in a boat - the advisor suggested this wire kit - problem is on a boat - you will likely need a longer ground if you mount the amp away from the engine and closer to the head unit. This kit is for a car - they need to mention this as I lost a week of my install time waiting for a 17' ground cable.
Pros: Good quality cable
Cons: Needs a longer ground for boat use.
The only issue i had was the connection to my battery didn't work more of chevys problem then to do with the kit
Pros: All of it! Great sound no transfer or issues!
Nice heavy wire
Everything worked great and seems to function flawlessly
Pros: All wire is quality and was easy to install
Cons: No fuse was in the box but they sent me two for free and the guy was very nice and helpful also the ground wire was shorter than I would have liked
Good kit, that made installing a Kenwood amplifier fairly easy.
Pros: Plenty of Blue(hot) power cable to get from battery to back of extra cab Ranger. RCA cables plenty long also, as was the Auto On connection wire, between the Radio and the Amplifier.
Cons: Ground cable too short, depending on mounting location. Extra fuse would have been handy, since I blew mine by accident. Didn't use many of the other parts. Ran my cable through hood release cable plug, so I didn't need the grommet.
Great kit and half off with the amp I ordered.
Pros: Great kit!
Cons: None so far.
Great all around wire kit for the money, again easy to run and nice fuse set up
Pros: Comes with everything needed to power a amplifier
crutchfield recommended this so i I ordered this to go with m r 1200-1d amp. i have no issues with it so far and it was easy to install myself
Pros: easy install
Exactly as described, came with connectors and everything you need to wire your amplifier.
Pros: Copper, good length of wire for positive, rca and remote.
Cons: Be careful, it's easy to strip the connections on the fuse block, very short ground cable, and the zip ties included break if you try to really tighten them down.
Very nice kit!! High quality
Overall first impressions on this kit is ok. It came in a plain white box not very impressive. Quality doesn't seem bad but I couldnt find out if it was 100% oxygen free copper which for the price it should be. The ground cable is way short. I guess i should've read more carefully but for the price that seems a little stingy imo. Other than thay no complains.
Great quality at a great price. Crutchfield comes through again!
Pros: Plenty of accessories included in this kit Power wire was the perfect length for my 07 double cab tacoma Instructions help during install
Cons: Ground wire worked for my situation but could be short in other situations. Power cable fuse housing could have a better design that is more waterproof. (Thinking about adding silicone to mine to waterproof)
Good option if you are clueless, like me.
Pros: As advertised.
Cons: The firewall grommet is worthless, if you need it. The grounding cable is short, so make sure of your placement first.
This kit has everything you need to hook up your high power amp.
Pros: The cables are very flexable and has a very high strand count.
Cons: I wish they would give you a spare fuse in the kit.
very nice price and good quality.
Pros: sturdy good grade cables and connector
Cons: could use better connetors and they should have wanred you need a bigger crimp kit to set
Great wiring kit so far. Easy to install and get through the firewall.
Pros: Not to much to say just yet cuz I've only been able to use them for not even a week yet.
Cons: Annoys me how short the ground wire is.
Had everything I needed to hook up my amp
Pros: includes everything needed...instructions make hook up a snap
Cons: for my installation, it would have been nice to have had two or three extra feet of power and ground wire length
I upgraded the free 8g wiring kit to the 4g kit when I purchased the clutch field amp. Customer service was superb as always and they prorated the upgrade for me. As for the kit, the 4G wire is great, but one little thing, hence the one star minus is the 2ch patch rca, the 8g kit has gold plated connector and the 4G kit only comes with, assuming nickel rca connectors. Make no sense since the 4G is 30 dollars more. But I ended up using that for my sub so it's all good.
Cons: Rca patch cable
I loved this kit. The reviews are spot on!!
Pros: Comes with everything you need.
Compatibility: The PA4BX kit is designed for amplifiers with fuse ratings up to 100 amps.

Great value, included rca patch cords.[ Carlos Sep 18, 2017 ]
I was looking for a OFC(pure copper) wire due to my limited voltage in my setup(no car alternator) so to minimize voltage drop I needed a good thick copper wire. but I did also like the three screw grounding terminal vs three screws around a single ring... would have liked to see a small 10-12ft wrap of 12gauge speaker wire but better that providing 16 gauge that might be a bit small.[ Daniel Sep 04, 2017 ]

That looks to be an install kit for the sub. Unless you already have all the necessary wires to connect the sub to power/ground and the rca cables to the deck then this looks to be a good kit.[ scott Aug 16, 2016 ]
You do not need it but you will need a power supply line with fuse, an equal sized ( meaning wire thickness)negative wire, a set of RCA converter to wires since this does not have rca inputs. Kicker sells that[ JOHN Aug 16, 2016 ]
Whether it is self-powered or a separate amp, you still need to get suitable power and signal to it. If your self-powered amp comes with a power line, fuse, and signal wires then no. But I would think you would need it![ ROBERT Aug 16, 2016 ]
We do not have the specific diameter of the cable with jacket specification you've requested. It's also not provided in the manual. If you must have this dimension ahead of time, you can try contacting Scosche directly: 800-363-4490 I hope that helps!

Yes, I am using two of these wiring kits, one for my JL JX500/1D amp that powers my JL TW1 10" sub and one for my JX360/2 amp that powers my JL C2650. I've had them installed for over a year now and I am very happy with this product, it comes with everything you need for the install. I switched out the fuses to T-SPEC V8 Mini-ANL Fuses because the kit comes with 100A fuse and I wanted to go with something closer to what the amp was rated for.[ THOMAS Jul 01, 2015 ]
yes and I have installed two of these wiring kits in my car one for the amp that powers my sub and one for the amp that powers my speakers. I've had them installed for over a year now and had no issues. very happy with the performance of this prodict.[ THOMAS Jul 01, 2015 ]
Yes it does.[ Edward Jun 30, 2015 ]
I am not sure. I bought this product in August of last year. It is a great product and have had no issues with it. I am running an Infinity 4 channel amp on it for my 4 Infinity door speakers. I love buying from Crutchfield because they offer good customer support. I would contact tech support through chat or phone. They can easily answer thus question. I am sorry I could not be more helpful[ Matthew Mar 02, 2015 ]

I do not have an answer to what type of copper this is but I do know that this wiring kit is amazing. Extremely easy to wire and very reliable. I ran into zero issues with this product. I am sorry I could not answer your original question. I do believe it is oxygen free.[ Brendan Mar 02, 2015 ]
