    JL 500.1 fusing??

    hi guys. well i got 2 JL 500.1's and i will be running a 0/1 gu. from the batt. to the trunk where it will be in a fused block, seperated into (2) 4 guage short pieces (1.5-2 feet long) now in the JL amp manual below, i believe it says 50amp fuses before the amp, but not certain. at the battery, of course i will run the appropriate fuse size for that wire, but for 4 guage wiring, arent i supposed to fuse the correct size for the 4 gu. wire OR for the amp? which do i go with? if its ONLY fused for the wire, why does JL say 50 amp fuse???

    Re: JL 500.1 fusing??

    fuse it at the battery, summing up the maximum amperage the both sub are going to pull and use a fuse that large or 10 percent bigger, that fuse is there, just in case that cable strips and shorts out on the car chassis.
    in side the car on that fuse distribution block you want a 50A fuse for each amp.
    i have the same amp, once i ran it at 2ohm and it killed a 60amp fuse!!. so im running a single 4ohm sub now.
