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

    Re: What Amp ANL Fuse do i need?

    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.
