    Should I fuse the batcap power?

    OK right now I have an optima red top under the hood, which is fused, and im adding a batcap 800 in the rear for my system, should i fuse the power wire near the batcap in the rear as well?

    I've heard of people fusing both ends, but I think it would be better to fuse it near the Optima side of the wire.

    its going to be less than a foot away from the amp, and the optima in the front is already fused, also my equipment is two 12" L7's and a zx2500. So should i fuse it back there near the amp as well or not?

    the wire between the batteries yes you want a fuse under the hood and a fuse in the trunk
