Big enough?

Previous posts reference use of a surface mount fuse block, and a heavy duty commercial breaker. Can anybody point to a link to examples of the circuit protection devices? I did a quick look in my Cole-Hersee catalog, and examples didn't pop out at me.

Maturango--I've seen installations that use the "Class T" fuses. Here's a link to what they look like from fellow AirForums member "OutsideSuppl"'s website.

MATURANGO, I think this is one of the type of fuses you are talking about. They have also in line power fuses.
Parts Express - Amplifiers, Head Units, Speakers, Wiring Kits, Subwoofers, Dampening and check part #263-624 for $30. They have others in the power distribution pages. good luck.

On the right is the Bussman 50 amp combination switch/breaker that I used on the positive side of the battery. Having read this thread, I think I will now buy another one for the negative side.

FT (Fuse Tease)

French Bern - That's it! So this is a tease - right. How much for a source for the device? The forums are good...

French Bern --

The fused battery terminal you found is very interesting. What's your experience with availability of the AFS "mini wafer" fuses these use? As far as I can tell, they're unique to the car audio folks and/or this product? Can you find the fuses at, say, a well-stocked NAPA?

HERE IT IS, and it is a lot less expensive buying it directly from these guys. This is the breaker I use on my 8,000 lb winch on my tow vehicle. If something does cause it to trip, a little arm pops out and you can reset it with finger pressure. Check out this site:

50 Amp Automotive Circuit Breaker

Also, if you enter "12 volt 50 amp circuit breaker" into Google you will find breakers priced from $7 to $59, but it is clear from the photos that the ones marked "Heavy Duty" and "RV use" are what you should have, in my opinion.
