    Jodi, just a precaution. Not really a good idea to be feeding a live 60amp cable around the interior of a metal car. If you've run the cable all the way to its destination and secured it before attaching to the battery, then you don't need to remove the fuse. But it's easy to get distracted and forget it's live and start tightening screws on the amp and short it out/blow the fuse.

    Oh, I see what you mean. A misunderstanding on my part. I thought you meant remove the fuse permanently and effectively wire direct to amp with no protection. When I had this set up on my previous car I wired to amp side before connecting to the battery to prevent me shorting anything.

    Thanks. I now have questions regarding the rest of the set up. See my other post.

    Thanks
