    Wiring and fuse question. HELP!!

    Trying to install the AGU type fuse in the 4 awg power cable....

    But everytime the cable keeps sleeping out of the holes...

    Never installed a fuse before....and I cant find any place online to tell me how to and the product didnt have a manual.

    Re: Wiring and fuse question. HELP!!

    U have to loosen up the bolts first, and u have to have exposed wire. The wire on the left isn't cut yet (u have to cut the surround and stick the copper part of the wire into the hole) than once the copper part is in u screw the bolt back in securing it in place.

    What tool is physically small enough to loosen that screw?

    looks to me like a allen tip to me. They should have those tools at any hardware store, even at autozone or pep boys.

    Ok, screw is loosened but the chamber is not large enough to accompany the copper wires and still slips out...

    it looks like there's spacers in there to make 8 gauge fit. See if you can pop anything out of the holes where the wire's go, they look too small for that 4 gauge. There's probably a couple of small metal rings in there...check

    Re: Wiring and fuse question. HELP!!

    Ok new questions...

    How exactly am I suppose to attach the gold plated terminal to the wire like this:

    http://img224.imageshack.us/img224/2905/dscn0924mx4.jpg

    What tool would I need?

    How come the gold terminal that I am guessing is suppose to attach to the amplifier does not fit the socket of the amplifier?

    I use a crimper for down to 4guage, larger than that I use a flat head and a hammer.

    You dont have to use a connector for hooking it up to the amp, just use the same method you did for the fuse holder.

    Re: Wiring and fuse question. HELP!!

    yeah man it's the same thing, move the screw up, stick the wire in, then screw it back down

    and for the first thing, the ring terminal, 4 gauge is kinda big for a crimper (unless you have a heavy duty crimper) so I suggest a flathead screwdriver and hammer. Crimping is a ***** and unless you've done it before you bound to mess up so make sure you have a couple extra terminals. They are like 3$ at any hardware store if you screw it up so don't worry
