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.
StreetWires FHXU8 Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Excellent fuse holder for 8 gauge wire
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.
Pros: designed exclusively for 8 gauge wire, looks good and feels sturdy
Cons: If you upgrade to 4 gauge wire, you will not be able to use this anymore.
What's in the box?
- Water-resistant AGU fuse holder
Overview: StreetWires in-line AGU fuse holders serve two main purposes.
- Protection: They are the first point of the protection for your system and your car in the even of an overload, short or accident.
- Performance: They maximize the audio performance of today's high-powered mobile audio systems and aftermarket auto accessories in any vehicle.
Note: The AGU fuse holder does not come with a fuse. Fuse sold separately.
Inputs/Outputs: The set screw input and output accept bare 8-gauge wire (no ring terminal required). This item does not come with clamps, instead, it has an integrated base and mounts with two screws (mounting screws not provided).
Water-resistant: The two-Stage watertight system protects all connections.
Housing: Impact-resistant clear housing protects fuse while allowing easy fuse inspection.
Forged Brass Construction: The forged brass connections offer maximum current transfer and resist the harsh environment.
Direct Connections: The direct connections offer low resistance and superior clamping.
