    What size of fuse for a 1500w amp?

    I have a Hifonics bx1500d it comes with 2 60A fuses and I am running 0gauge on it to power a Rockford Fosgate T2 sub... I have a 200A ANL Fuse... Is this Ok or do I need a smaller fuse??

    200 is fine. U dont have to match the fuse to ur amp, just the wire, because the amp is already fused there are 2 60 amp fuses in the amp, so it is protected by them.

    yep, the only thing you have to make sure of is that the fuse matches your power wire
