Where are the fuses? I have a PCX480 and PCX2400 and I dont see any on the outside of the amp must be on the inside then huh? First time I owned PPI PCX series amps. I really like them too. I Cant wait to get it all installed. Still waiting on a few items but getting closer.

You'll need to supply external fuse for the amps. As for the size, check the manual.
PPI PC2600.2 is a great amp. If the guy's only asking for $225, don't hesitate. You will not find that model very often. The spec on it is as good as one of Zapco's best amp.
I'd buy that model just for collection alone. Well worth the money.
Unless your "gal" can appreciate the beauty in that amp, it'll be a waste.

Hehe thanks Isaac. Yeah true but she does love her music so it wont go to waste imo. I dont have the manual I check on the net see what I can digup. The reason being I need to know what size I should run in my inline fuse holder. Do you think I should use 0 gauge or 4 gauge and since im using my mbr 70 would I want to run the 0 gauge from front to back through my mbr 70? Cause like I have read in many recent post. Once the car is started it all comes from the alternator.

Darnit one more thing would I want to double fuse that? Since im using the mbr 70 would I want to fuse the Line between the front bat and the isolator? Or just from my amps to the second bat?

Orion MBR 70 only needs 70A so 4 gauge is fine. Yes you will need double fuses, one for that and one near your 2nd battery.
If you can't find the manual for the amps, then take your total watts and divide it by 12v. Whatever number you get is approximately the fuse size you need.
If you're going to give that amp to your gal, you need to remind her how special that amp is. Almost one of a kind now. To replace that amp with current models, you'll have to look at Zapco amps. The C2K 6, which costs over $1200.

Hey is running that PCX2400 on 2 IDmax 12's gonna be to much for my PCX480 horns and 6.5's. I was wanting to just run 6 speaker config but im worried im gonna get to much bass. Should I add more up front or think it will be ok?

You won't really know till you try it. I think you'll be fine. Besides, that's what the crossovers and equalizers are for. To balance out the sound.

DEI told me that the PCX480 has a 70amp fuse and the PCX2400 160amp fuse. Thats quite a bit so im looking at 230amps. Yeah I think im gonna need an alt possibly. What you think?

Those are at the max setting. You can get by as long as you keep the volume down. If not, yes, HO alternator will be required for premium sound.
