Depends on how long the run is. Remember the fuse protects the wire not the load :-). Average run is 15ft, most run a 50amp, or 40amp.

SOURCE: Car amp re conecting the the battery

Hook up the battery, (the negative post) and then put the fuse in. This is the best choice because if you put in the fuse and then put the negative post back in and the wires slip when putting in the negative post, the fuse might blow due to the sparks. You will then need to get another fuse, which also mean sending more money.

SOURCE: Keep Blowing Fuses

Sounds like the amp is shorting somehow. You are obviously shorting out somewhere between the battery and the amp. Are you sure you grounding location is a good one? is the fuse blowing only when you turn the stereo on? Something is not hooked up correctly.

If the fuse at the battery is blowing then it's a short.

If the fuse on the amp is blowing then its probably a bad amp.

SOURCE: car amp blows 12 volt wire fuse

the wire from your battery is blowing fuses? and you are using 20-30 A fuses? mine has a 100A fuse..look into getting new wire plus my wire is 4 gauge.., 1600 watts is too powerful for a 12 g wire and a 30 A fuse

SOURCE: amp keeps blowin the two 30amp fuses on the amp.

Make sure that the speaker wires are wired correct at both the amp and the speakers......otherwise it sounds like the typical death of a power acoustik amp (great amps, but prone to a premature death)

I am wanting to hook up a 10 meter ham radio a connexcx 4600. In a cascadia freightliner semi truck. It has a built in amp in the radio 200 watts I was wondering what gauge wire and what size inline...


you will need some 12 guage wire and a 5 amp fuse.Make sure when you hook it up that you check your SWR because if you don't youcould burn that nice connex.If you are not sure on what to do I would suggest having someone help you the knows what they are doing.

I'm hooking up my connex4600 turbo to batteries


The fuse size will protect the wiring depending on its size but the question is what amperage does the system draw/use and therefore what size wire is needed and the fuse will be the size of the system amperage draw and the wire size also determined by the amperage draw because if the amperage draw exceeds the capacity of the wire the wire will melt so the fuse should project the wire by cutting the current flow when it exceeds the wire siaze but the system needs the cureetn flow, amperage it is designed to use.

Meter shows good send & receive strength but no sound from internal or Aux. speaker.


If mic is ruled out (broken connections etc) likely a cap in the audio circuit has opened--this happens a lot when a radio is stored for a long period of time.

Going to need a schematic and a meter to test the caps in the audio circuit--could also be a bad audio chip or connections at it.

Very poor FM receptio, and virtually no AM reception


The cascadia has an integrated AM-FM-WX, XM?, and CB antenna system, that is also prone to poor grounding. The best solution is to install aftermarket antenna systems for all of the equipment... I am driving a 2013 Cascadia with quite poor FM, and non existant AM, and WX reception. The XM works. I am afraid to hook up my CB to this, as it is pushing too much power, and is a sideband unit. I would like to hang the engineer by his/her toenails from the nearest tree for comming up with this garbage...

How to hook up a kenwood amp.kac-5204


All amps are basicly the same. It should be plain as day where the speakers connect to.
The 12V screw connects to the main power from battery, be sure to fuse that wire and use a proper size wire, thicker is better,I suggest at least 8gauge with 40amp fuse. The GND is ground and should connect to car metal, file paint for soild connection. The REM is remote and connects to the remote of headunit or if you have a stock deck to the acc of car found in wire harness of headunit. Plug in the RCA's to head unit, or get a converter to plug into speaker wires from car if you have a stock headunit.

I have a 1200 watt sony xplod amp hooked up to a 15" SBL Gorilla sub. The bass hit for a while and then started to cut off. Now it wont work unless i touch the remote wire to the power wire, and even then...


this kind of problems usually happen when the amp is not getting enough current to power up the  
 amp. the moment a loud low frequency hits the amp it fails. cud be ur power unit not giving enough power to the amp or u have a loose connection somewhere on ur power line. besides 8gauge is a bit small. try using about 4gauge. should have good ground too. they draw large current so ur battery should be in top condition as well.
