dmize, when I was doing one amp, I had an inline closer to the FH-44 you listed

single 50 amp fuse, waterproof, taped the ends w/vinyl

that dual block came with 4 fuses, so I requested 40 amp and 30 amp, I'm running the 40 amp, amp spec is 30 amp. I will try the 30 amp fuses eventually, maybe.

a local installer told me you could twist two 8 gauge wires together, and reuse the fuse holder, but you know how that goes.

I've never blown a fuse so far on the bike due to the rockford amps.

those amps drain the battery quicker with two of them, but not so bad.

saddlebag lids pull a bunch of bass, which pull a bunch of power.

maybe not worth mentioning, but had a crackle in right output, second amp, when I was installing and adjusting fade, first time running it, dialectic grease in the amp output 4 plug connector, fixed it.

also throwing it out there, nolox can be used on connections if regular dielectric grease is too slippery, and it is.

I try and coat everything with a little of both, stops oxides from forming later.

I did a side mount ring terminal, for the 4 gauge wire, as stated earlier getting extra wires in there is tight, took top half a 1 1/2" pipe clamp for grounding to plumbing, bent and machine filed until it worked, broke 2 before getting the 1 right. then trimmed the top lid of the battery cover that holds the ECM on the front side corners, smoothed the edges, then insulated the 4 ga connector I had just made with vinyl wrap.

I still am planning on sealing the end caps of the amps with black RTV.

I take a week or two off from projects sometimes to gain perspective.
