  • Boom box fuse?

    So, I'm going to put together a boom box and I'm wondering if I need to have an in-line fuse. I'm using a Sure 15x2 amp with the Sure bluetooth module and 2 Dayton ND90's. I'll be using a 12v power supply brick. Do I need to add a fuse?

    It could not hurt. The fuse needs to match the amperage of the AC adapter. I put one on every boom box I make.

      Short out your battery for a few min and see what happens ;) Then go back in time and provide a fuse as close to the battery terminal as possible.

            This one is my personal favorite. It uses a GMA 5x20mm fuse so it keeps it small and has little depth. It also allows accessibility from the outside if you are using a dish as well.
