Had a quick question about fuses and stuff. I have a Sax 1200D, MS-8, and a PPI P900.4 (probably going to add a small 2 channel for rear fill). I was going to run 0 gauge wire to a distribution block with an inline fuse before the block what size fuse should I get? Also do I need fuses after the block? I know I'm going to need one for the MS-8 but what about for the other amps?

So I would need to fuse each wire still? Would a fused distribution block be a better choice? BTW what size fuse should I use before the distribution block?

Alright so recommended fuse size after the block then before the block do I add all the amps fuses together and use that?

Quick summery:
- ANL Inline Fuse Block; sum total of fuses on amplifies plus 10% (within 8-12 inches) from battery - 0 gauge wire
- from Distribution Block, Fuse EACH LINE [match fuse rate for each amp] within 4-6 inches (4 gauge wire)
