Default Plug and Play Audio Wiring Harness

I watched a video of witchdoctor's installing the Rockford Fosgate amp along with the ALPINE-SPS-510 speakers. I contacted witchdoctor's about purchasing the wiring harness separately and they stated it can only be obtained with one of their bundles. I already have the amp and speakers, so the bundle isn't needed.

I was informed that they don't manufacture that wiring harness, but they wouldn't tell me who does. So my question is, does anyone know where to get it from?

You dont need that just wire it up on your own and save yourself the money. It's not hard at all. If you get stuck ask here and I or someone will walk you through it.

I'm sure I could do it, but I was hoping to find the easiest/cleanest way. I don't really want to cut off connectors and splice, but if that's the only way, then I guess I'll have to. Surprised no one on here has mass produced that harness yet. I bet the demand would be high.

Cutting and splicing is the easiest way but it was a total of 6 joints.

I soldered mine and put heat shrink on but if you don;t feel comfortable with that crimp connectors with heat shrink of the heat to solder connectors can work as well, just make sure you clamp things tight and I used heat shrink just for a bit of extra protection.

As long as you aren't trying to twist the wires and wrap with electrical tape you will be fine.

I would recommend an Amp wiring kit that has the Positive and Ground wires with terminals and a fuse already done. That way you don't have to worry about adding the fuse in the right spot. That should run about $30-45.

I asked witchdoctor months back about buying the wiring only off them and the costs was several hundred dollars. I did the wiring myself for about $60 including buying a new soldering iron, solder and a 300 piece kit of heat shrink.

The harness is amp-specific. I'm sure even though the RF amp is a pretty popular add-on the total numbers re pretty low overall. And the likely amount of mark-up someone could charge would be pretty modest per piece, compared to the labor involved in building the harness. This isn't something a company can sell thousands of...

If you have any questions on hooking your amp up just ask here... Lots of help available.

Ok, I will attempt to do this myself. I still really like the idea of the wiring harness that witchdoctors has, so I want to recreate it. Doesn't seem that hard. I opened up the amp box and located the power plug connector.

1. Seems as though if I order the Rockford Fosgate RFK10 10 AWG Power Only Install Kit, I simply screw the Pos and Ground wires into the black housing. **Don't connect the REM wire**

2. There's an INPUT connector/cable that terminates with RCA connectors. Is it as simple as cutting the cable prior to the transition from 4 wires to 2 wires and adding the corresponding MALE spade connectors to the 4 wires?

3. Lastly there's the SPEAKERS connector with 4 16awg wires. This looks like where I would splice some speaker wire and terminate with corresponding FEMALE space connectors to attach to the new speakers.

Am I missing anything?

Your correct! The male and female connectors are what you need to make your own premade wire. Keep in mind that there is a small size and a bigger size connector on each speaker. You will need each male and female of each size. Yes to cutting the RCA cable ends off. Keep in mind of the polarity (positive / negative) and make your wires accordingly. You'll understand that when you see your speakers + & - terminals. Good luck

thanks jpickar. I realized there are 2 different size connectors. My 520 piece kit only has the 1/4" or .25". I have been searching online to find out what size the other is but haven't found it yet.
