They recommend a 200 amp fuse because a full tilt it could potentially pull that much current,

That amp can put out every last bit of 2k.

You can fuse a 4ga run at 200 if it's a short run, the ratings you see for wire are usually based on a 20ft run,

The shorter the wire the more it can carry over the length of it.

I would run a 150 amp fuse on it personally though, you are likely never going to see a draw over that on music.

You could probably even go smaller if you wanted.

Stick with a 60 amp fuse for the t400.

That being said a lot of people's definition of "music" is a clipped 30 hz sine wave with some 80 IQ knuckle head grunting about committing crimes and his genitals.

OK so my 15001bdcp came today, birthsheet of [email protected] I got to thinking about my power run. I haven't measured it totally yet but a rough estimation would have it at around 15-18 feet. I'm running the 400 and 1500 on one run so should I stick to 1/0 or go with 2/0?

I'm ordering all my wiring next Friday so I wanna be 100% sure before I toss money down the drain.

Mite as well Order as big as you can afford. You can get welding cable like from electron beam way cheaper than (car audio) wire

A single run of ofc 0g is good for 300amps.

With a max of about 260amps of power draw you will be fine.

I personally would do 0g and add a battery to the back rather then using a distro block.

singer alt, tons of wiring, smd vm-1, 80prs, back seat delete, still in the works, aiming for a 145-147 with the ability to play 25hz up to 50hz.
