    Depends; what kind of wire do you intend to use? From Alt to batt I'd use max rated amps for the wire.

    Anything above that rated amp the wire will melt, LAVA.

    Alright, not quiet that bad..

    I didn't fuse my alt to batt.

    Why? Anl fuses are cheap as fvck and take two minutes to change. Fuse according to wire size, there its no point in fusing higher. Putting a two hundred fifty amp fuse on anything smaller than 1/0 defeats the purpose. You might as well not even run a fuse in that case.

    Lol all good but if my amp is fused then can I get away with no fuse under hood... And since it's a stock alt won't a 150 amp fuse under good from alt to batt be ok cause I thought the amp couldn't push over that anyway ?? But ya always trading changing got a thread up now wit a basically new Skar vvx and a nice q I really just don't think I'll be happy till I got a pair and I'm always getting one woofer at a time so anybody wanna help wit a pair got something to trade let me know I'd let the q go for a vvx plus cash or the vvx go for a q and I'd add
