About the EFX PAD8BX Wiring Kit

Power wiring for your second amp

EFX's PAD8BX Core Dual Amplifier Add-On Kit allows you to add a second amplifier to a system without needing to run a new power cable all the way to the battery. This kit's fused distribution block connects to your original amplifier's existing 4-gauge power cable, allowing you to run two 8-gauge cables to supply power to both amplifiers. A 60-amp fuse protects each wire (and your vehicle) from accidental power surges or short circuits.

Power wiring for your second amp

EFX's PAD8BX Core Dual Amplifier Add-On Kit allows you to add a second amplifier to a system without needing to run a new power cable all the way to the battery. This kit's fused distribution block connects to your original amplifier's existing 4-gauge power cable, allowing you to run two 8-gauge cables to supply power to both amplifiers. A 60-amp fuse protects each wire (and your vehicle) from accidental power surges or short circuits.

The 8-gauge oxygen-free copper power and ground cables ensure that your amps get all the power they need for maximum performance. Each ground cable features EFX's Ultimate Ground Terminal, which attaches to your vehicle's chassis by way of 2 self-drilling screws (included) to make sure you get a tight physical and electrically secure ground connection.

This kit includes patch cables for a 2-channel or mono amp — you'll need to add cables for multi-channel amps. This wiring kit does not include speaker wires. You will need to purchase those separately, in order to complete your amplifier installation.

Features

Compatibility: The PAD8BX kit is designed as an addition to an existing amplifier wiring kit (4 or 8 gauge) when adding a second amplifier (each amp rated up to 60 amps).

Kit Contents: This amp wiring kit includes the following:

  • Distribution Block: dual output fused distribution block
    • Input: set screw terminal (4mm Allen wrench not included); accepts a 4 gauge or 8 gauge wire; the input block has three openings (only one is used), so the input wire can be connected to the left side, the right side, or the end of the block
    • Output: both set screw output terminals (3mm Allen wrench not included) accept 8 gauge wire
    • Fuses: a Mini-ANL fuse mounts between the input terminal and each of the output terminals; two 60 amp Mini-ANL fuses are included
  • Power/Ground/Remote Wires:
    • 6' length of 8 gauge power wire in a blue jacket; designed to be cut to the desired lengths and used for both distribution outputs
    • two 2' lengths of 8 gauge ground wire in black jackets; each has the patent-pending Ultimate Ground Terminal for reliable ground connections
    • 6' length of blue turn-on wire
  • Fuses: two 60A Mini-ANL fuses
  • RCA Patch Cable: 17' core-twisted stereo RCA interconnect cable with split-top center pin and segmented shield for maximum contact and connection reliability; twisted pair construction gives you maximum noise rejection for better sound quality; RCA plugs have a micro barrel design and integrated strain relief
  • Connectors: The kit includes the following terminals:
    • four 8 gauge crimp-on spade terminals; 0.35" wide; two with red insulators (power) and two with black insulators (ground)
    • two 18-22 gauge crimp-on spade terminals; 0.25" wide (for remote turn-on wires)
    • one 18-22 gauge crimp-on butt connector (for joining remote turn-on wires)
  • Mounting Accessories:
    • two 1/2" Phillips-head screws (for mounting the distribution block)
    • four 1/2" Phillips-head self-tapping screws (for securing the Ultimate Ground Terminals)

Q
Can this be used with an 8 gauge wire from my current amp?

A
Absolutely, there's no reason you can't cross load the elements from this kit and integrate it into an existing system.
