    replacing fuse

    I just ordered an Ap1800d it comes with a in-line fuse do I add that to the one that I already have?

    You just need 1 fuse, the fuse should be rated for whatever size the wire is. Unless the amp does not have onboard fuses, then you would fuse it for whatever the amp recommends.

    Re: replacing fuse

    Second thought if the amp is 1800 rms and you already have 0g. Then You will need a bigger fuse more like 200amps minimum or it's either going to pop or slowly melt.

    Re: replacing fuse

    The fuse at the battery is there to protect the wire. Fuse based on wire capacity. Go with a 250A.

    Re: replacing fuse

    Circuit breakers and fuses are two different things, though they do the same essential thing. I use fuses. Use 250A for CCA wire, 300A for OFC wire.
