Fuse question

The amp that I am getting has 3 fuses adding up to 90amps, the amp kit that I want to get has a 75amp inline fuse, would it be alright to run it like this, or should the inline fuse be larger then the fuses on the amp?

the inline fuse should be equal to the fuses in the amp...if that's not possible then you should fuse the power line as close as possible without going over the fuses in the amp (so that fuse will blow before your amp)...I'm pretty sure I got that right...it's a little too early in the morning for me

What do you mean close as possible, so the inline fuse should be bigger then the fuses on the amp.

Use the 75 amper. If it blows go with a 100 amp jobby.

There's no reason why you can't go higher than what your amps have as long as your power wiring is sufficient. Inline fuses at the battery are there to protect your wiring and your ride, not your amplifiers.

Yeah becuase the amp kit that I am going to get has like a 60 amp fuse, and the amp has 90 amp, so that is alright to do then.

A 60 amp fuse might be pushin it. It really depends on how hard you're running that amp. Is it a 4 gauge kit? I wouldn't go much higher than 60 with 8 gauge power wiring.

Hey Fishy, which one would be better the RF CP2POS, thats a 2 gauge kit and comes with a 100 amp inline fuse, or the RF CP4POS, the one I am talking about that comes with like a 60 amp inline fuse, I think I will get the CP2POS though.

Nevermind, I will get the CP4POS, its 4 gauge and comes with a 50 amp inline fuse, I'll just buy that amp kit because it costs less and I will just buy a 100 amp fuse for it.
