The 40 Amp Circuit Breaker will work as a substitute to your systems 40 amp fuse(s). If your amplifier(s) fuses add up to 40 amps in your system, this one is for you.

The best thing about a circuit breaker is once you buy it, it will not "blow" as is the case with fuses. Call it a long-term investment...

With the click of a button, you can reset the circuit (no switching of fuses, etc.) and your system will be pounding seconds later!

Installation is a snap as you place the circuit breaker between the battery and component.

Key Features:

  • Matches up with systems rated at 60 amps
  • Can be used with 1 amplifier with an 40A fuse and also with systems with more than 1 amplifier
  • Example Application: 1 amplifier; 2 20 amp fuses (20A + 20A = 40A)
  • Saves time, money, and hassles of switching blown fuses
  • 1-year warranty

Circuit Breaker Specifications

Circuit Breaker Rating
Circuit breakers are used in place of fuses to protect an electrical device from a overload or short-circuit. Unlike fuses, circuit breaker do not need to be replaced whenever one "blows". Instead, simply flip the switch on the breaker and the connection is safely restored.

The circuit breaker rating is the number of amps that the unit has been rated at. The number of amps on a circuit breaker corresponds to the same number of amps needed when using fuses.

40A
Maximum Input Gauge Size
This is the largest gauge wire that will fit into the power and ground terminals of this device. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire is. For example, a 4 gauge wire is thicker than an 8 gauge wire and thus has higher current carrying capacity. Always do your best to get this size wire to reduce the risk of damage to your components.
4 AWG
Maximum Output Gauge Size
This number refers to the maximum size of wire that will fit into the output connector(s) of the capacitor, battery terminal, or any other connector with an wire output.
4 AWG

Not the best

December 16, 2009

Ya it worked for me, but the little head that says 40 amp on it kept coming off. It was just placed there not glued or anything. Other than that it was a pretty good cut off switch for my old system.

Cheaper than fuses, Easier maintenance!

August 6, 2009

I have this hooked up to a Hitron 1000.1 amp

the circuit breaker will in fact accept 4 gauge wire. There's a little spacer to be removed which is a bit of a pain and its a bit of an odd piece to work with but it does the trick for cheap.

Installs and troubleshooting is so much easier now because you don't have to unscrew and remove fuses. One button and you're set.
