This wiring kit does not include speaker wire or patch cables. You will need to purchase those separately, in order to complete your amplifier installation.
Your amp needs big power wires in order to deliver top performance to your sound system. Rockford Fosgate's RFK8 amplifier power wiring kit supplies everything you'll need to send power 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.

Perfect best 8 gauge wire money can buy
Works great. No complaints.
Pros: Simple install
Professional cable and fuse, with lots of length to spare.
Perfect for installing sub with built in amp great quality
Pros: Quality product and great service
Just what we needed to complete the installation!!! worked Great!!!
This is a great kit for the money ! All the parts are quality made and look great.
Pros: Quality parts, looks great
This is all you need to get an amp or powered sub gong!
Good quality materials and works perfectly.
Installed this wiring into my F150 supercab and had enough cable to run it towards the backseats of my subwoffer. Easy to install kit.
Pros: Great quality and price.
Crutchfield knows exactly what to send to simplify your installation efforts. Great product to go with my powered subwoofer.
Pros: Contains the necessary installation components needed to install my powe red subwoofer. It was so easy to install.
This package looks good but I noticed looks can be deceiving.
Pros: Looks/feels like quality material.
Cons: Some benefit of having quality, many stranded wire is lost when the wire inserted at the factory is just jammed. Into the fuse holder and crimped down. It weakens the connection and will fail sooner.
Originally, I thought that the 8-gauge battery cable provided in the Rockford Fosgate RFK8 wiring kit would be big-time overkill, but now I'm glad we chose it. The kit may be a little expensive, but trying to piece together and assemble all of these components and connectors separately would be a nightmare. The cable is soft and easy to route through the cabin. We were able to run the red positive cable from the battery of our sub-compact hatchback to the cargo area where our powered sub was located with less than 2-feet of wire to spare, so beware of the cable's length. The 3-foot gray ground wire was also a snug fit. We found a good spot to mount the inline fuse holder on the firewall, just behind the battery - no problems there. We used the included turn-on lead wire, running it between the sub and an accessory lead wire that we found in the driver's foot well, to turn our sub on whenever the car is on. My only regret about this kit was that it didn't include speaker wire for use in making high-level speaker input connections. I realize that not everyone needs speaker wire, but Rockford Fosgate does offer a different version of this kit that includes low-level RCA cables - so why not make a version that includes high-level speaker wire too? Anyway, I'm very glad that I bought this kit. And at half-off the price with the purchase of a sub, it's really a bargain. I would highly recommend this wiring kit for anyone installing an amp or powered su
Pros: Almost everything you need in one package.
Cons: "Almost" everything you need in one package.
Good product, easy to install and look clean.
This kit was exactly what I need to replace my old amp kit. The length was perfect for my 2010 Chevy Avalanche. I even notice my subs hitting harder then before. The quality is great. I recommend this product . I rate this product 5 stars!
Pros: More juice to amp resulting in way better performance from my subwoofers.
Great wire, great quality, easy to strip and install.
Pros: good stuff.
good kit. cables were long enough to reach amp in trunk, but the provided connectors were too wide for the amp I purchased. so I had to go to a local stereo shop to get connectors that would work.
Pros: good kit. cables were long enough for my job
Cons: connectors provided were too wide for amp that was purchased
The components that came with the wiring kit where made of quality products but did not include RCA cables so i had to make an extra trip to get a set, so i would recommend buying a kit that includes everything you need.
Pros: Quality Product
Cons: Missing RCA cables
High end kit at a decent price. Only problem is the kit doesn't come with RCA patch cables (WHY?). I didn't notice this and had to buy some inferior ones locally to continue my install.
Pros: High end
Cons: No RCA's.
Excellent quality cable that is extremely thick and heavy duty. It was plenty long enough to run from front to back of my Hummer. Great fuse enclosure.
Pros: Excellent quality Thick protective coating Great fuse enclosure and included fuse.
Cons: No RCA sound cable for subwoofer
have used several of these for other unit installations, good quality material.
Pros: good quality
Cons: price, I mean its just short lengths of wire for crying out loud.
This kit costs a little extra, but is well worth the cost. There's a reason some kits are $20 and others are $50. You get what you pay for and it doesn't make sense to short change your several hundred or thousand dollar system for the sake of $20-$30.
Pros: High quality components
General Overview: This is a single amplifier wiring kit that includes the power and ground cables, turn-on lead, and accessories required to install one amplifier. Speaker wire and RCA cables are sold separately.
High Strand Power/Ground Cable: The power and ground cable are 100% Pure Crystal-Oxygen Free Copper (PC-OFC) and meet or exceed AWG (American Wire Gauge) requirements.
In-line Fuse Holder: The included in-line, water-tight fuse holder attached to the power cable comes with a 60-amp AGU-type fuse.
