Style Name: 4 GaugePackage Type: Standard Packaging
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 GaugePackage Type: Standard Packaging 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 GaugePackage Type: Standard Packaging
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 GaugePackage Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
A kit like this can be a real money- and time-saver if you are looking to do a car install but don't have a need for extra spools of wire, cable shoes, ties etc. This is a complete and rather attractive kit for the DIYer with a car, an amp, speakers and a tool box. The only issue I have with the kit is the misleading marketing (or rather, blatant lie) calling this 8 AWG. You get plenty of plastics for your money, but little metal - to me the supposedly 8 AWG power and ground wires have a multistranded core about 2.0 mm in diameter rather than the 3.7 mm required of an 8 AWG wire. This suggests that this is closer to 12 than 8 AWG. Having read the other review before ordering, I was ready for this and for somebody in my situation - looking to improve the sound quality in my car for less than a Benjamin, this is still a great kit. The hard-of-hearing car audio enthusiasts looking forward to shaking windows and turning heads half a mile away may need to look at something a little pricier to ensure the power is converted to sound rather than to heat in the wires. The other items also appear to be functional but flimsy - the split wire loom is paper thin, but will hopefully still offer some protection - after all, the plasticc wire insulation in this kit is very thick. I'll try to add some photos to illustrate this review

Yes it's true the gauge of the wire is not accurate. Its a little smaller. DO NOT BUY THIS if you're trying to hook up a high watt amp and a bunch of subs. Go bigger and more expensive. I used this for my 350 watt amp and 10in Kicker sub and it does the job fairly well. Everything sounds great and I haven't had any problems... yet. :)

Overall I was pretty happy with the kit. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and the supplies seemed of good quality. The only thing I wish is that the ground gable was another foot in length. 2 feet just doesn't cut it.

Style Name: 8 GaugePackage Type: Standard Packaging 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.
