the fuse is to protect the wire not the amp. its fine. just hope you dont get in an accident or anythign and short the wire or youll have a fire

seriously...people flippin out....the amps are internally(or some externally fused), so you don't have to worry about the amps.

Who's flippin' out?

If you guys don't want to fuse the products you've invested money in, then don't... but if you mess it up it's your own fault and you know it.

Also, my xtant amps are not fused internally OR externally.. the only in-line fuse is under the hood.. remove that and I might as well be one of these guys^^^^

it really doesn'y do much....unless you have the power wire ran through the door jam, there isn't much to worry about.


i had a 250A fuse on my 4ga for like 8 months...nothing happened....

running the powerwire through the door jam is not safe, b/c the wire can get caught in the moving parts and eventually can become pierced...shorting out and whatnot.

If you don't see a fuse on the outside, it isn't fused. If you don't give a crap about the amp, then don't fuse it. The fuse is designed to protect you and your vehicle from a fire or death. Get a fuse in there asap, accidents can happen at any time. JMHO Polo.

yes, YOU NEED A FUSE, if the amp isn't fused....and for safety reasons....but if the amp is fused, and te power and ground are separated....it isn't a code red. lol unless the alt. takes a crap and sends out a huge spike of current/voltage...oh wait...the amp has overvoltage protection...lol nevermind...i am simply stirring the fire. lolololol

but you need to fuse the power wire anyway. becasue your car still has the posibilty to catch on fire if the wire shorts for some reason

i am not condoning not fusing the power wire, that would make me a hypocrit b/c i have mine fused as well, all i am saying is yes, your vehicle is safer with one, but it isn't a code red(like the b1tch starts shooting sparks when you crank it up)...do it asap though:-)

the fuse is to protect the car. who cares about the amp, if u didnt have a car would u have the amp? not fusing the wire causes fire and or shorting computer in your car. also if the vehicle caught fire do to install insurance will not cover it.....

if its a good enough install you dont even have to worry about it its a precation ....
at least thats how i think of it...


(100% sure the wire wont get cut or crushed on anything, or be shorting out or able to touch ground in any way possible.. besides that the only other thing i would be able to think of is the amp\battery itself getting messed causing damage that the fuse could have stopped?)
But i still say under the hood is a must for the fuse... coming from my batterys in the rear to the amp.... no fuse :p
does that sound about right?






-no more forum for me :-) time to smoke this blunt and goto bed its 11am already....insomnia from my job... can i sue them?? ROFL!@!!!
