The reason for having a fuse on your power wire is to protect the vehicle not the amp
if any of the wire between the fuse and the battery were to ground out it will quickly catch on fire. IF the wire between the fuse and the amp were to ground out it would just blow the fuse. So as your truck sits right now its a fire hazard
