How to install a wired fuse between battery and amp

Fuse rating is based on the guage of wire it's to protect.
Install the fuse holder close ...within a battery positive connection.
You may require a different battery cable clamp to accept your new amp wire (and the existing wiring).
Occasionally, it's possible to use an unused location in a vehicles power distribution panel (the fuse box close to the battery - under the hood). Sometimes appropriate for small to mid-draw amps, in certain vehicles, where some high draw options were not factory installed.

Power cable size and fuse size for boss riot r1400d caraudio amp

you need to determine how long the wire run will be from the battery to the amp then check
this link will allow you to know what guage and how far at what amperage ,A rule I use is look at the fuse or fuses in the amp and match the amperage fuse at the battery ,no more than .The fuses in the amps are usually above the current that the amp will pull from the car battery .or alternator when running . That amp has a large power supply and runs low impedance (it will pull power from your car )Think about a capacitor ,unless you are installing in a truck with dual batteries .

I have one of the power acoustik a2100d and it ceeps going into protection mode any suggestions will be greatfull thanks liam

This could be due to one of a couple things:
- Speaker wires shorting out against each other (or the speaker may be shorted out itself)
- Not enough current coming through the power wire (check power connection, ensure you are using big enough wire, i.e. 4awg)
- Not grounded well enough (check ground connection, make sure chassis ground is against bare metal and solid)

I dont know how to connect it .it is an mrp-m850 i tryed to connect it but it wont turn on

well u run a power wire atleast 4 guage from the positive terminal on the battery, then 4 guage to a chasis ground source, then a remote wire to the rear of your cd player that will kick the amp on when the cd player turns on... then for subwoofer wiring go to for sub wiring options... you need either single voice coil 4 ohm subs or 2 ohm dual voice coil subs to get the 2 ohm load to the amp so u can get the rated power out of it...

Using 12 gague wire on a 250 watt amp blowing fuse

Oh my yes. I would recommend number 4 as a minimum. Use the same size for the ground. Bond it to the body in the best way you can. Use a CAD welder if you know anyone in the pipeline industry.

But ideally, run the biggest guage you can afford. and FUSE IT!! Zero Guage or better, and buy a fuse block and put it at the battery. Otherwise your crash could be a crash and burn.

2.0 Farad Capacitor

The answer is yes, any amount of amplifiers can be hooked up to a cap. Obviously the more amps you hook up to it the less you are going to nodice the difference with the same amout of farads. The only thing that I am worried about is the wiring from your battery to your cap. As long as you have a decent gauge wire running back you should have no problem. And for this instance I would recommend 0 guage, you might be able to get away with 4 but I would highly recommend 0. Over all I would recommend 0 guage on all installs unless you are going small and don't plan on upgrading. I hope I could help

Installing The Subwoofers to the amp... etc.

You should go with a 4 guage power wire kit. If your amp is going in and out
at high volume than that is your problem. 8 guage will work but, if you want
the proper current which is your power from your battery, going to your amp
than I would recomend the 4 guage amp install kit or just the main power
wire coming from your battery. If you would like contact me and I will send you
to a very good sight with all the info you will ever need for car amplifire installation.
