    fuse power to each amp before the amp. Personally, I would fuse everywhere. between bats, between amp and bats ect

    Re: Dual toolmaker help

    If they are going to the same input I'd say you could use 150. I was thinking sep input but the amp will only draw what it will at max not 600. I personally would still use the 300.

    Usually fuse according to wire size. In your case, you could do 2 150a fuses if you wanted.

    yep your only fusing for the safety of a short those fuses do nothing to protect the amp, they protect the wire from the amp! so on short runs I use 300+ amps of fusing low amp fuses have a very high impedance load and slow the flow of current so as long as your in the safe zone of the wire fuse as big as you can.
