Use it correctly and you get what you pay for in electronics.

I purchased this amp kit about a month ago for my Rockford T8002 sub amp. I actually read all of the other reviews after I purchased the kit, thank God for that too. I might not have bought it if I had read them first. That would have been a shame, because this is actually a very good kit as far as kits go. Especially considering the price. The kit had everything you need from loom to zip ties to crimp connectors, everything. I read the other reviews about the crimp connectors and I keep reading things such as hammer and vice grips and pliers. These are CRIMP connectors, hello. Use crimpers, crimp pliers. I didn't even use my large crimpers, I used my regular Klein crimpers. The crimp fittings went right on and crimped right onto the wire, solid and stable by the way. The wire, which I keep hearing so much about, is indeed 0 or 1/0 cable size by the AWG code. The problem here is we have all been spoiled to companies over sizing their cable. I read one company, not naming any names, they had three different size and capacity 1/0 cable. Sorry folks, but if it is larger than .3249" in diameter it is no longer officially 1/0, but it is a larger guage. The RCA cable is well made, nothing extravagant, but it gets the job done and done well. Someone actually made a reference to the remote lead not being very large in relation to the other cables especially the power wire. They have absolutely NOTHING to do with each other. The remote lead usually connects to a TL494CN pulse width modulator chip which requires maybe three electrons to turn on. (That was a joke by the way.) I have never seen a remote lead correctly wired conduct more than 500mA. The wire included will have no problem with that current flow. I am sorry but for less than $40 this kit gets a 5 star rating. No, it isn't an Esoteric Ultra Flow kit, but then again, it didn't cost $120 either. In the end, this kit gets the job done!!
