    Looks nice and thanks for small pics. Still using dial up here.
    i beat my system daily, i mean smash it full tilt. and my amp barely gets warm. it would get hot before when i had it fused because it was pulling and getting a portion of the current draw it needed.( my theory at least)

    It does make alot of sense. I will take the fuse out when I get more wire. I really dont see anyway of it shorting anyway. I'm confident in my wiring ability.

    Thanks

    43hz is the sweetspot so far. i cant wait to get one of my repaired goliaths back from ampjunkielikeme. then i will test and test and find out what the van can do.
    so you only do a 53 if you had fuses installed Mines a daily driver so fuses are a must. A minor fender bender could shift **** around, so better safe then sorry. But a 160 legal would be nice going by your logic

    makes a LOT more sense then a $5 fuse keeping you from burning the car to the ground

    if my van ever burned to the ground i would buy a new one with even a bigger system and run that one with no fuses as well...

    since you are one of the main nuthuggers on this website you should investigate that tendancy you have and try to learn something. ask any of the big boys what kinda fuses they run and see what they say...

    i think you are the one that needs to learn something. I have a daily setup in my vehicle, WITH fuses. When i get to the competition, i pull the fuses out and have a copper bar to join the 0 gauge together.

    Im not going to risk running no fuses every day, when im driving to school and work

    So not running fuses makes you a "big boy" Makes you a ******* if it's a street driven vehicle. And it's not loud even without fuses, but it does smash

    Perhaps when the van burns down you'd be trapped inside, but we never get lucky like that on CA
