Hey guys...

I have heard from a few people that there are 100 & 125 AMP AGU Glass fuses available on the market for use with my subs... I have never seen anything bigger than an 80 amp fuse... anything bigger I have seen has been ANLs etc... Do they exist, or am I am wasting my time looking? IF they exist, any good links to purchase?


I'd rather buy a fuse for under 10 bucks rather then buying a 25 dollar ANL replacement module w/fuse...


Thanks in advance

My question is that if you have the AGU glass fuses, what size wire are you running?

IMO. I would not want to run more than 75ish amps through 8ga and most AGU fuse holders I have seen are for/come with 8ga.

If you have 4ga or larger, good, and I am no help at that point trying to find them.

Like he said, don't look for any bigger fuses unless you have at least 4ga. wire. If you do, I've got a couple extra ANL fuse holders and fuses, I could probably part with one for cheap if you're interested.
