my db drive 2k took a beating today. one of the grounds came loose. the amp reached 83*c :omg:
never cut off kept playing hard (im loving this amp) but the wire when i got home started to melt. needless to say RUN FUSES. The resistance you lose by not fusing is moot compared to the money it saves you... and im sure som of you knew this thread was coming but i had to find out myself. anywho. jst informing you guys ... be smart. not like me

You can catch your car on fire without fuses, so I use them.

This is in advanced SQL/SPL discussion? Really? How advanced is it to use fuses when running power wire?
