    Fuse on Alternator Charge Wire

    Just trying to get a quick consensus. Who does or does not have your alternator charge wire fused? I personally have it fused on 2 of my cars, but not on the 3rd one.



    I am from the Old School Audio era. I collect vintage car audio; I have roughly about 40 plus amps, 20 plus subs, dozens of sets of mids, highs and components, 14 eqs/processors, and numerous other old school equipment. I have several old school jewels amongst my collection. I have also collected some nice Japanese and German made audio while I lived in Japan and Germany. I do bring the new school as well with my six Memphis Mojo's, two AudioQue 3500.1D, RF Power 30001BD, Sundownsubs, etc...

    Re: Fuse on Alternator Charge Wire

    Fuses can protect a car from burning down, if it's a daily driver.

    I normally fuse from alt to batt...

    Cool thanks everyone. I have not noticed a difference in my ride's system.



    I am from the Old School Audio era. I collect vintage car audio; I have roughly about 40 plus amps, 20 plus subs, dozens of sets of mids, highs and components, 14 eqs/processors, and numerous other old school equipment. I have several old school jewels amongst my collection. I have also collected some nice Japanese and German made audio while I lived in Japan and Germany. I do bring the new school as well with my six Memphis Mojo's, two AudioQue 3500.1D, RF Power 30001BD, Sundownsubs, etc...
