What is an AGU fuse holder?

What is an AGU fuse holder?

Inline AGU fuse holder used when adding a amplifier to your vehicle. Provides protection in case there is a power surge.

What are AGU fuses used for?

AGU fuses are generally used for car stereo. They are usually glass. AGC fuses are used in a variety of things also glass and ceramic. Then ANL fuses are used for higher wattage and amperage applications.

How big is an AGU fuse?

5AG size, type AGU, 1 A to 60 A, 13⁄32 inch (10.3mm) diameter by 1 1⁄2 inch (38.1mm) long. Also called “Midget fuses.”

What is a maxi fuse?

Maxi fuses are larger than ATO/ATC fuses and offer protection for high amperage vehicle circuits. They are a blade-type fuse designed to replace fusible links or fusible wire. The fuse link is completely enclosed to help protect against moisture and other corrosive or damaging elements.

How many amps does a car amplifier need?

A typical car amplifier requires anywhere from 10-30 amps. (You can check how much amperage you need by looking at the fuses usually located close to the inputs on your amplifier.)

What fuse should I use for my amp?

The correct size of fuse to use depends on the amp you are wiring. If your amp has an internal fuse, then your inline car amp fuse should be a bit larger. For instance, if your amp has an internal 20 amp fuse, then you should go for a 25 or 30 amp inline fuse.

What size fuse do I need for a 1500 watt amp?

150 Amp fuse
A 2500 watt uses a 250 Amp fuse, while a 1500 watt uses a 150 Amp fuse.

How do I choose a fuse holder?

The most important thing to remember for the fuse holder is that the voltage and current rating need to be higher than what will actually be present on the circuit. If there is a 10 amp fuse, using a 20 amp fuse holder will be no problem; whereas using a 10 amp fuse holder with a 20 amp fuse will likely cause problems.
