    Re: All about fusing!

    were talking about fuses here....not wire. Quit being john kuthe and stay on track.

    I thought you were saying if say I had a 100 ampere fuse, go for 125 amperage fuse.....didn't make sense to me.

    If you have 200 amps of draw use a wire that can handle 250 and fuse it for 250. It offers much better preformance and is still perfectly safe.

    Thats kinda how I figured mine, needed 750 amps capable and my gauge was rated at 350 amps for 20 ft so 3 runs @ 350 is 1050 aprox 25% over but I fused at 300 per run, I guess I could have fused at 350 ?

    Honestly i really doubt it would be noticable. Fuses aren't perfect. Play it hard a feel the fuse and the connections. If they arent hot dont sweat it..
    I use a infrared temp meter to see if they have an inbalance load when i parallel connections. But if none if tgem are hot u ok. If one is hot you have a bad connection in the other two parallel lines.

    sure the fuse adds resistance but thats why you use 125% figures.

    Only fuse blocks and fuses I have ever used were Stinger. Never had a single issue even with an 8 amp install.

    Funny you mention that. Both of my kids wanna go back for vacation. It might happen too. This would make it my 7th time there.

    Oh ya...can't wait to get my Polks installed.
