Home Forums General Discussion AC or DC? Re: AC or DC?


A couple of posters provided links to audio gear. One link was all about fuses.

That was good as far as it went. However, be mindful that audio is not the same as power wiring. A 300 watt inverter will pull close to 30 amps when fully loaded. 30 amps requires #10 ga wiring. It takes very good workmanship to make reliable and long lasting 30 amp connections. the best ones are bolted not push on. Industry standards say push on connections should not carry more than 10 amps in continuous service. Automotive 30 amp circuits usually have something better than the typical consumer grade push on connections. Have anyone noticed that newer cars have bolt on connections, fusible links and circuit breakers instead of the older style most of you are more familiar with?
