Scosche power cord question

I'm running a 4awg (gauge) power cord from my battery to the inside of the truck. ive had it for a long time but i took out the fuse from the actual cord. Does anyone know what fuse goes in there? i lost it. it was a big fat square fuse but i can't recall what amp it was...

any ideas?
i plan to run a sub again soon

I don't think it was one of those (MIDI). looked like a regular fuse just big. and i don't know about the actual amplifier. its prob going to be a Rockford Fosgate 550.2....its 30A fuses on the amp
heres the amp

never seen a maxi on a 4ga wire before.. i think the biggest they make is 100amp in those. 4ga can handle more than that.
midis are usually 80-200 amp typically 100amp that they come with ... figure out how many amps you will need by adding up all your fuses on your amplifiers then buy the next highest fuse.

ya it was a maxi by the looks of it. the amp has 2 30A fuses so it would be 60. that case get a 80A for the power cord?

EDIT: ya i think the original was a 30A can't remember though
