Amp Fuse Block Kit Underhood
So I've gone through two of these crappy stinger kits. I'm talking specifically just about the fuse block / fuse holder. If you look, it's zip tied to the a/c hose? by the battery...
In one case the plastic part that screws on just melted, fell apart, disintegrated, which resulted eventually in a blown fuse. This one lasted about 24 months.
The next one lasted about 12 months, prettymuch the same issue, but this time the fuse didn't blow. Strangely enough, if you were holding a fuse, imagine the metal part just becoming disconnected from the glass.
I'm thinking this might be a heat related issue and I need to relocate where the fuse block is located. This was originally installed by "stereo king," and it's actually the first time out of 6 cars I've ever had someone install a stereo. I guess the older I get the less time I have, so I figured I'd pay someone else to install the stuff.
Can anyone recommend a fuse block that won't melt/change shape/or be temp sensitive, and a convenient place it can be located within close proximity to the battery?
I don't care what it costs, I just want it to stand up to the heat, and I want to be done with replacing this damn thing every 12-24 months once and for all.
Fuse blocks only, but if I must get another "amp kit" please let me know.
