The CK4 kit includes a 17-foot, 2-channel twisted pair patch cable that'll send the signal reliably from the receiver to your amp with minimal noise. Also, Kicker provides 40 feet of 16-gauge speaker wire, enough to take care of both the front and rear speakers in most installations. Kicker makes all their wires from oxygen-free copper so you can count on maximum power and signal transfer with minimum resistance or interference.

Awesome kicker amp kit

Russell from Hinesburg, Vt on 5/2/2017

This kit works great in my car! Just hooked up two 12 in kicker comp S subs on a 1500 watt kicker 2 channel amp. Definitely worth the extra money to get a good kit. Others don't quite allow for the same range of sound due to lack of power conservation throughout the cable. A must use if you plan on putting together an awesome sound system.

Pros: Much better sound and range Easy to use full set with extra wiring and components for variety of cars

Cons: Price price price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Everything you need to setup 2 channels of an amplifier and good quality.

Pros: Like how flexible it is, easy to maneuver where you need it.

Cons: I think 20 feet would be a better length for the wires/cables.

Just what you need

Luke from Gulfport, MS on 4/21/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Solid kit. All you need after this kit is the screws to bolt the subs in place. Using this kit on a Kicker DXA1000.1 amp with 2 compRT's. Happy system!

Pros: Nice cables and wires. Plenty of length. One and done so to speak

Cons: Needs a 150 amp fuse and some mounting screws for subs.

Perfect

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Kit came with every piece needed to make it a clean install for a single amplifier. All wires were more then adequate with length and quality. The added speaker wire was good stuff as well as the remote line and RCA supplied. Would purchase or recommend

Pros: Good wire, everything you need

Cons: None

Incomplete

Crispin from Selah WA on 1/29/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the cost they should provide everything for the install. Lacks U clips to connect Power and ground cables to amp. Have to chase down at hardware store.

Pros: Incomplete. Therefore nothing good.

Cons: Incomplete. Therefore the entire product is trash. Don't buy.

This box has everything you'll need to complete an amplifier installation correctly. Quality parts and hardware. Only issue is that kit lacks any instructions which might present a challenge for first time installers.

Pros: Quality Parts, Heavy Gauge Wire

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Organized along with the prints I was found on the site, understood exactly how and why each cable was needed. [ Michael  Aug 13, 2017 ]
I wanted to upgrade my wring to compliment the Kicker CX600 amp I have for my Subwoofer and perhaps have enough 'strength' to power an additional amplifier to the speakers in the future. Having read the few reviews for this product- I was compelled to purchase it. [ Joseph  Jan 13, 2017 ]
new speakers for car [ JOHN  Dec 18, 2016 ]
I chose the wiring kit because there was an extended warranty for the speakers with these. I also watched the video and it showed more power moves from the amp to the speakers with Kickers wiring kit. What the heck, I'll give it a try. [ DAVID  Dec 04, 2016 ]
ease of installation [ DAVID  Aug 24, 2016 ]
using a kicker dual 12 box sub with kicker amp combo. I like to use products designed to be used with each other. cant beat the quality of kicker and everything you need in 1 kit [ cody  Apr 13, 2016 ]
Nice complete kit [ I  Mar 14, 2016 ]
Low loss of signal [ Robert  Jan 20, 2016 ]

1 question already asked

Yes, if it's big enough for 600rms it will be more than enough for 300.1 .With power wiring you can't go too big. It might be a tight fit in the 300.1 power terminal. But it should be fine. [ james  Apr 04, 2016 ]
I've been using this kit on a 1000rms amp for over a year now and have had no issues with it. [ Matt  Apr 04, 2016 ]
