I bought some 8 Gauge speaker wire from Autozone but the rest of the kit is good.
Jacob
It did not have all of the cables that were advertised and when I called to return the product they would not give me a refund!

This Boss wiring kit had everything I needed for the system I was putting in my car and it made install very easy.

Style Name: 4 Gauge
OK. So like many others, I read all the other reviews on this item. In doing so I learned two things.... 1) Everybody thinks they are an expert in car audio, yet they buy the cheapest 4GA wire kit on the internet and complain about it 2) This kit is not 4GA.

Now, I knocked off a star because they advertise 4GA, when in fact it is 8-9 GA. I'll add a picture to the pile showing the comparison of this kits 4GA and a piece of 9GA so you can see the actual difference. Since they are saying they are selling you one thing, and are in fact selling another (and it's amazon direct shipped) I think Amazon should be responsible enough to either A) change the description to alert potential buyers or B) require the manufacturer to actually put the correct gauge cable in the box. However, you must realize that you are paying just over $20 for a complete amp install kit. I even went and looked at the other items mentioned in some of the reviews from wally world etc. They do sell a kit that is 4GA, and reviewers say the wire is true 4GA wire, however they also complain of cheap rem wire, missing parts and poor connectors on the Bravo kit. The Pyle 4GA kit also had comments about not being 4GA. Apparently very common in lower end kits (suprise suprise.....go inquire how much decent real 4GA wire is per foot and then you will see the light, and don't be suprised at $2 a foot or more for quality stuff)
So at the end of the day in research, one cheap kit is about as good as another.

Now, as to what will this kit handle. Well, for that we use a little math. Here's your equation. Multiply the total number of channels on the Amp (or Amps) time the RMS power output per channel. For example, my Fosgate R250-4 250 Watt amp has a 65 x 4 RMS rating so 65x4=260.

Style Name: 8 Gauge Verified Purchase
Judging from a lot of the reviews here people seemed to be expecting more. Like expecting to pay more for the same or less. I looked at several kits here and elsewhere and I went ahead and ordered this for installing a Boss Bass1200 in a Tacoma pickup (I don't need to rock the car next to me, just me and my passengers). The fuse holder alone costs as much elsewhere (I saw the exact one) as the who kit does here. I don't do this professionally. Install car audio components. I don't have a tool drawer full of 8 gauge wires and nuts and crimp-on fittings (well, some) so this kit looked like the right thing and is enough to do the job with stuff left over. I've got a few niches open in my toolbox to fill. If you're a pro, or a wannabe-pro, I'm not talking to you. If you're a new car owner or someone just trying to upgrade his/her car stereo and you need a kit like this, buy it. It's a good deal.

Style Name: 4 Gauge
If you're doing an install that requires at least 4 gauge, then this is not the kit for you. The insulation on the wire is pretty thick, but the copper is very limited and looks more like 8 gauge. Before buying this I called Boss Audio to get the fuse rating and they said it was 100A. It looks more like 80A based on the thickness of the metal. I bought a 4 gauge kit in walmart which was clearly a 4 gauge and much bigger than what I received with this and came with a true 100A fuse as clearly indicated by it's size.

Style Name: 8 Gauge Verified Purchase
The cabling is strictly average for the power and ground, nothing exciting. They are NOT 8 gauge however, they closer to 10. I have plenty examples of 8 gauge wires and this isn't it.

The rca cable that comes with the kit isn't bad. The remote turn on is a little thin with the copper for my taste. The speaker wire is AWFUL. It may have the jacket of a 16 gauge speaker wire, but it has the copper of a 20 gauge. It is WAY to thin on the copper. I had a spool of RCA 14 gauge I ended up using instead.

The MO for this kit is use thick jackets to make it LOOK like the right size, then use less copper. I guess the extra jacket helps with shielding if nothing else.

Style Name: 8 Gauge Verified Purchase
From my other reviews, you may see that I'm pretty easy going. However, this kit amounts to sabotage so "...no more Mr. Nice Guy..." this time around.

I bought TWO of these kits and both had to be returned for the same reason. There was no option; NO WAY to make this brittle breakage GUARANTEED wiring work.

Just starting with the blue turn on wire, I found that it CANNOT have any connections made. That's right; trying 3M pro grade crimp on connectors; the brittle wire breaks. Ok, lets try soldering. Flex the wire once and it breaks. Ok, what about affixing it in screw type clamp connectors like at the amp? This will come as no surprise at this point, but the wire simply breaks.

So to recap the above, the blue turn on wire is 100% defective and no reliable connection of any kind can be made to it. In other words, it looks like a wire but cannot possibly perform the function of a wire. It is a "non-connector".

The larger power delivery wires feel ultra light in weight and are NOT 8 gauge in the first place. Where BOSS cut the wire to length, the inner portions of the strands appear bright grey in color instead of copper in color. But then, it is advertised as KLA, so aluminum core is expected. Does that justify the fact that the wire strands cannot withstand any common connection method? No it does not. Even the heavy gauge wires had a large percentage of strand break the first time they were clamped in the amp.

First off, the wires are much smaller than 8 gauge. Maybe 10 gauge. Then, it appears they are made of substandard brittle aluminum. Aluminum wiring can and will work in cars if it is made with sufficient ductility. Brittle aluminum wire that can't even be connected? Extreme fire hazard at minimum.
