Re: All about fusing!
I use fuses and I use industrial holders and quality fuses and dont have any issues. I did melt a couple of "car audio" fuse holders thats when I switched to industrial type. Also I fuse to what the wire is rated or a little under, I have 0 gauge cable rated at 350 amps at 20' and use 300 amp fuses and have three runs giving me 900 amps of current available before a fuse would blow and I dont think my HD 15000 could pull that much current as I have not blown a fuse yet. I think I fuse over fear of car accident really because I dont think an amp is ever going to blow the fuse on a large amp anyway. When my 7ks power supply shorted out with it mounted to my back wall of truck, power supply grounded out to heat sink and actually melted the mounting screws to the cab of truck and caught fire and fuses still didnt blow and that was pretty close to a dead short. Oh ya That didnt even melt the fuse holders. Another thing is I fuse the three runs in the engine compartment and in the rear before the batterys that way in an accident and cable is pinched both ends are protected, also fuse the runs from battery to amps.
