question about amp with external fuse
I have a Hifonics Z8000 (5 channel), but the amp does not have a fuse on it. Hifonics recommends a 50 amp external fuse. This is my first amp with an external fuse as all my previous amps have had fuses on them.
(1): Is the external fuse the same thing as the fuse on the power wire at the battery or should there be a seperate external fuse near the amp?
(2): This question applies if the answer to the first question is that the fuse at the battery is also the external fuse for the amp.
I have an amp kit that came with a 60 amp fuse. Should I swap this out for a 50 amp fuse or is the 60 amp OK?
the answer is yes....and as for the 50 or 60 fuse....probably wouldnt matter to much...but to be on the safe side i'd go w/ the 50
thanks. i'll pick up a 50 amp fuse soon.
