Its hard to believe that years ago KnuKonceptz brought CCA center stage to the car audio community. A product then known as our KLM series would go on to change the car audio world. Today its the standard all other CCA cables are held to as demonstrated in our Amp Kit Review with Head to Head brand comparison photos.
The KCA Kable is the next generation of our Copper Clad Aluminum (CCA) power and ground cables. Succeeding its fellow models before it, the new KCA 4 Gauge uses the same of 29.44mm^2 of Copper Clad Aluminim (CCA) and then wrapped in ultra flexible PVC for amazing flexibility. This rugged PVC outer jacket is impervious to grease, oil and can with-stand the extreme temperatures (-40 to 105 C). Available with blue or red power cable
Included in the KCA-K4 Amp installation kit are all the parts required for one complete amplifier installation. All the proper hardware, fuse holder with an 80A AGU type fuse, ring terminals, and cabling are provided to deliver the a maximum current transfer to your amplifier. Signal is transferred from your head unit via our Bassik RCA Cable, a 5 Meter Oxygen Free Copper RCA with remote turn on lead. From the amplifier, our bassik speaker wire guides your music to the speakers, twenty(20) feet of 14 gauge speaker cable is included with this wiring kit.
KnuKonceptz Mission Is To Create Unique Audio Installation Products. We Offer Quality & Unique Home And Mobile Audio Accessories World Wide. Customer service available should you need assistance in selecting the product that is right for your application

This 8 Gauge Amplifier Installation Kit Includes:
How many watts can this amp kit handle?
At KnuKonceptz, we do not use “watts” to rate our amp kits. This is a very inaccurate method to determine what the proper gauge wire required for your amp installation. There are many amp manufactures and not all of them represent the output of their product accurately. Please refer to your amplifier’s fuse rating, this is a number a manufacture can not fake, well they could but it would put their product in harms way! Add up the fuses on the end of your amp (two 20A fuses = 40A total draw) If this number is under 50A, this kit will fit your application. If over 50A, a larger gauge wire would be required or use our Kolossus Flex 8 gauge amp installation kit.

Can I alter this kit in any way before purchasing?
Our amp kits are made in large batches to reduce cost, which is passed onto you. We can not alter them in any way. Should you need to make alterations, you would have to purchase the items individually from our shopping cart.
Oversized vs Other CCA Cable
Our Kolossus Copper Aluminum (KCA) series cable was designed specifically to be larger than the competition. Copper Clad Aluminum is less conductive than Oxygen Free Copper when comparing like sized conductors. CCA however is also much less expensive. So by increasing the area in our KCA cable, KnuKonceptz was able to achieve similar performance to OFC, but without the higher cost.
For this exact reason is why our cable is larger, to achieve similar performance, for less money. The graph below shows, based on area, our cable is at least 40% larger than comparable brands.
Bassik RCA Cable – Simple and Solid
Oxygen Free Copper construction.
Twisted Pair Geometry for noise rejection.
Ultra Flex, soft touch PVC allows this cable to fit in tight places.
Simple color coded channel identification.
Gold plated RCA connectors
Plain and Simple Specifications
Wire type – CCA or OFC
These materials are commonly used, but not commonly stated when shopping online. Know what you are purchasing. Both metals are capable of performing up to their rated loads.
American Wire Gauge
Wire gauge is crucial to powering your system correctly. Undersized cable will create unsafe conditions and may shorten your amplifier’s life.
Max Load (amps)
Wire’s ampacity changes with gauge and materials. KnuKonceptz does not rate cable based on watts. Amplifier manufactures do not always truthfully state the output of their product, check your on board fuses!
True American Wire Gauge (AWG) Products
Using American Wire Gauge standards, the gauge of stranded wire is determined by the total area of the conductor.
To calculate this you would take the area of each strand and add it together. This area, in square mm, then determines gauge.
Diameter is not as critical with stranded wire, this is due to the tiny air gaps between each strand. Diameter may fluctuate with strand size and how tightly wound the rope of the cable is.
The smaller the number, the larger the wire, until you reach zero or aught (0). From zero, you then have double aught (00 or 2/0), three aught (000 or 3/0) …
Based on AWG, this cable meets 0 gauge specification
Copper Clad Aluminum – Best Value
Copper is the best conductor, but the price, CCA makes a great bang for the buck option.
Always follow the manufacture’s max rating on battery cable. Excessive loads will cause more distortion in amplifiers, create more heat and will shorten the life of your electronics
Proper termination is crucial for an increased life span. Always check that connections are clean and secure.
