I just broke in my single SA series 2ohm 12" in and when I crank it up it's kicking my 40 amp line fuse. My amp is an Orion 1500.1 mono block....and what I'm trying to figure out is do I need to run a larger fuse say 60 or 80 amp OR... go back and check all my wiring. My hot wire is Stinger HPM 4 gauge 6' long, and same for my ground but about 2' long. If anything doesn't sound right please let me know.

Xtr can handle 120 on 4gauge but I’m scared to say something with you saying your running a 40amp fuse with out me looking at it. If your fuse is to big for your wire ,the wire melts before the fuse witch means your car burns down.

You should be able to handle up to 150amps on 4 gauge but I’d limit it to 120amps , if it cannot handle that you need 1-0gauge

No way I'd use a 4g run from the battery to power an xtr 1500.1d.  those amps do way over rated power.

 

And you kind body hinted that you're feeding a second amp with this 4g.

 

You better feed that distro block a run of 1/0 from battery and get that big 3 done as well.
