    150 amp fuse w/ 200 amp alternator???

    hi all, i just installed a 200 amp alternator on my 95' dodge neon.

    The amp i will be running calls for a 100 amp fuse. i only have a 150 amp fuse. [My 2 local car audio shops didnt have anything over 60 or 80 amps.{guess they are not serious bout car audio}] .

    Would it be ok to run the 150 amp for a day or two? i have already ordered ten 100amp fuses off ebay but they wont be here for a week.

    Thanks for your help. -justin

    If you can't find hte fuse rating that you require, people would normally recommend you to put a lower fuse rating.

    Re: 150 amp fuse w/ 200 amp alternator???

    oh shiz. i just got back in from hooking it all up, 3mins worth of playing sweeps and my sub is smoking! its brand new too...

    can someone double check my amp to sub settings:

    1 JL 18" Duel 2ohm Voicecoil wired in parallel to the Left channel (testing purposes) of RF 1000a2 gain 1/5th the way up.

    help!

    edit: i just figured out i had it wired at 1ohm!!!!! i got it in series now. i hope thats better
