    Hi,
    Welcome to the forum, are you asking about what fuse near the battery you should use?
    Is this the only amp in your system?

    If it's the only amp in your system, try and find a mainline fuse around the same size as the built in fuse in the amp.

    Remember the mainline fuse is to protect the wire in case of short, not to protect the amp (that's what the built in fuse is for).

    this amp was found in garbage ,I opened it and found the ground wire fried so I replaced it ,I used a 5 amp and a 15 amp fuse that was the built in fuse for the amp.so if the ground wire was fried other things may have been damaged .I looked over amp but nothing else looks burnt or damaged ,is it worth to pursue on this amp .Thanks Alex

    sorry, I haven't been able to find any specs on this amp.
    But it being a PYLE I wouldn't spend much time on it. They are really low budget equipment.

    If the ground wire inside was fried, that means something drew a ton of current.
    So most likely what happened was there may have been an issue with it, and someone tried a larger fuse and then it drew so much current it fried the board.

    The Fosgate would be worth fixing, is it one of the oval black ones? Those are classics.
