Are all 10 amp fuses the same?


Are all 10 amp fuses the same?

Since automotive fuses are differentiated both by design type and current rating, all fuses most emphatically are not the same. Although it is definitely possible to replace any ATO fuse with any other ATO fuse, doing so can be extremely dangerous if the wrong amperage fuse is substituted.

Can I use a 15 amp fuse in a 10 amp slot?

Yes, the 15 Amp fuse may be sized for a device in that particular circuit, and the 10 Amp fuse may be very short lived.

What fuse should I use for my amp?

The fuses below are ATC/ATO fuses. The fuse on the left is a 40 amp fuse. The fuse on the right is a 15 amp fuse. These fuses (like most plastic fuses) are also color coded….

Wire Gauge Recommended Maximum Fuse Size
1 awg 250 amps
2 awg 200 amps
4 awg 125 amps
6 awg 80 amps

What gauge wire should I use for a 1200 watt amp?

4 Gauge

What gauge wire is best for subwoofers?

Long (100ft+) speaker runs or higher power applications such as high-power 2 or 4 ohm subwoofers. In most cases for everyday listening at medium or low power levels (50W RMS or under), 18 gauge (18AWG) wire is what you need. It’s a good compromise between price and handling as it’s usually priced well and easy to find.

What gauge speaker wire should I use for home theater?

16 gauge

What gauge wire should I use?

To determine what gauge wire you need, consider the carrying capacity and the amount of current the wire needs to conduct (measured in amperage or amps). Wire gauge is directly related to how many amps you need to run through it. The distance you need the wire to go can also impact the gauge of wire you need.

Can I use 14-gauge wire for lights on a 20 amp circuit?

If you’re installing this on a 20 ampere circuit, with 12 AWG wire, you’ll have to use the screw terminals. NEC 240.4(D)(3) states that 14 AWG must be protected at 15A. You can not use 14 AWG anywhere on a circuit that has a 20A breaker.

Which is thicker 20 or 22 gauge wire?

20 gauge: Medium thick wire. 22 gauge: Medium wire.

What is 6 gauge wire in MM?

American Wire Gauge (AWG) versus square mm cross sectional area
