4 guage wire $.99/ft
d-block $10
150amp fuse $5-10
RCA $30+

that is a huge fuse btw. what amps are you planning to run, and how many amps can your alternator dish out?

when you said 150 amp fuse, i was expecting you to say at least 1000 watts total. i would definatly drop that fuse unless your planning on adding a huge amp later on.

that fuse will be wayyy too thick. take a look at both amps, take a look at their onboard fuses, add them up. that should be the fuse size at the battery.

even if you are getting a bigger amp in the future, get the right fuse now, and replace it later.

are u referring to the fuse for the power wire from the battery?

i read an article saying that 125amps fuse is recommended size for 4 guage wire, and since i will be running 4 guage wire upfront, isn't 80amps to small? I told the guy at the stereo shop that i wanted 125amp fuse, then he said, he would increase that to 150amps upfront and leave no fuse from the Dblock to amplifiers :dunno: . im confused.
