    Re: how to determine inline fuse rating

    decided on 4 total. 1 for the alt to bat, 1 for bat to distro, and 1 for each amp. going to fuse each amp at their fuse rating, fuse the bat to distro @ 250, and fuse the alt to bat @300.

    anyone have a good place to buy 2 weatherproof 0ga inline fuse holders that come with fuses and 2 inline 4 ga fuse holders that come with fuses?

    So you are going to run 0 ga wiring from the distro blocks to the amp with a 50 amp fuse???

    Re: how to determine inline fuse rating

    so i should fuse the 0ga at 300 and the 4ga at 250 amps instead of dropping the value down to what the amps are fused for?
