    For daily, fuses make sense. For competition install fuse blocks but during your run replace fuse with a copper fuse sized link. I have seen it gain .2 if .2 is not enough to help you win just leave the fuse in place.

    I do. Because a fuse is cheaper than buying another 1000 dollar amp (for example)

    Some do, some don't. It's up to them if they wanna take that risk or if they're exp enough they know what they're doing. I myself ain't taking that chance tho.

    Many fuses come in a variety of sizes, colors, amperage, etc. Just pick the one that your amps draw the most amperage.
    Fuses don't save your amps from bowing up. If they gunna blow they gunna blow.

    First, even if they do pop- do they still allow excess power or dirty electricity to harm your equipment.

    Second, what materials are they made of? Plated steel, aluminum, ....silver? And how do these materials correspond with letting energy flow freely when supposed to YET interrupt it in time when things go awry.

    Thirdly, and what got me to post, is the sound quality they pass without making distortion. Just like a good set of RCAs can improve (or not degrade) the sound, can fuses do this as well? It also seems silly to have the best copper wire in a low gauge and then put a piece of tin for a fuse next to the battery.





    Bottom line is, safety aside, will I get better power transfer from a thick 200A fuse versus a 60A fuse that has a stringy piece of metal inside. And what will the sound difference be in terms of volume, and possibly clarity if a subpar metal is used. And then, I just kind of wonder is the short run of a fuse so insignificant as to not be able to change the path of power flow.....and if it does, then I question the point of having quality contacts and connections.
    nobody noticed that the op was asking if sound traveled through the power wire/fuse? lol

    just to let you know OP fuses on your power wire just pass current(power) from the alt/battery to the amps, the signal(or sound as u stated) is passed through the R.C.A.'S therefor fuses will not affect sound quality fyi
