1. ## What Amp ANL Fuse do i need?

Running a 1 gauge from my battery to the trunk to a DISTRO. Splitting two 4 gauge wires to each amp that i have. Someone was telling me i "need" to fuse the 4 gauge wires that are being splitted. If i dont it can concur a FIREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEE!!!!!!!

If they are short then it shouldn't really matter.

maybe around 4 feet max. i know its not longer than 4 feet.

formula for figuring out current is Power Divided by Voltage so each 4 gauge will be going to an amplifier i am guessing so how many watts is each amplifier? take that number and divide by 12 (because cars run on a 12 vdc electrical system) and that will give you the ammount of current on each wire. and that will also tell you waht size fuse to put on each wire.

Example 1200 watt amplifier

1200/12=100 meaning that would need a 100 amp fuse.
