Our take on the StreetWires FHXU8

by Buck Pomerantz

Fuses should be installed as close to your battery as possible, and the best way to do that is with a fuse holder on the power cable. Designed for AGU-type fuses, the FHXU8 fuse holder accepts 8-gauge power cable. A three-stage watertight system, including three O-rings, guards against moisture, and clear, impact-resistant plastic covers protect the fuse while allowing easy inspection.

Your 8-gauge power cable fastens securely with the built-in set-screws. The Diamond Plate Nickel finish protects against corrosion, while gold-plated contacts ensure optimum conductivity. Warranty: lifetime.

Excellent fuse holder for 8 gauge wire

Written By Jake, Norcross GA on Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
If you're using 8 gauge wire AND an AGU fuse - you need this. StreetWires didn't settle for making a "universal" 4 gauge / 8 gauge holder. Instead, they made this sturdy design that is made specifically for 8 gauge wire. THANK YOU StreetWires! Pretty good price for this too - please don't skimp on your installation.
designed exclusively for 8 gauge wire, looks good and feels sturdy
If you upgrade to 4 gauge wire, you will not be able to use this anymore.
