What size inline fuse would you use with a 600 Watt Amplifier?

Cars & Vehicles

To work out how much current is drawn you need to divide the Watts by the Volts. Depending on where you are the volts will be either 240V or 120V. You would need to allow for some head room.

So, in the UK: 600 Watts / 240 Volts = 2.5 Amps (so a 3 amp fuse should be fine)

In the US: 600 Watts / 120 Volts = 5 Amps (so a 5 amp fuse won't give you any headroom - which might be okay if you keep the volume low :)

Well seein as this says car as the type youd prolly want to use 12 volts duh,

and its 600watts/12volts= 50 amp fuse

you can figure this out by division, divide watts by voltage = amperage

What size in line fuse should you use when installing a 2000 watt inverter in your rig?

There is a power equation that works out for this. However, since I do not think you will power anything larger than a microwave (1000) watts, you will go by the sum of all fuses located on the device (Power inverter). For example: 2 green fuses on device at 40 amps each: 2 x 40 = 80 amp in-line ...

Yes the amp can push the 2 subs. I have 2 1250 watt 12inch subs and 1 maybe 400 or 500 watt amp and the amp does fine but if you want more bass at lower levels of volume then you want to have a bigger amp. Just make sure your amp doesnt blow your subs.
