no simple answer for David ?

From Exile's website, I was able to gather his amp's total fusing.
800.1 = 60A (2 x 30) I would use a 50 or 60 amp
Harpoon = 80A (2 x 40) I would use a 80A
SM600.1 = 50A (2 x 25) I would use a 40 or 50 amp

For the main circuit protection, I would use a 120A or 150A breaker or fuse. As noted, the amp's estimated current draw will depend on some variable factors such as battery level, volume and music type, but it also depends on how many chnls are running at 4 ohm and how many or running at 2 ohm. The load on the chnl dictates the amps output, thus the current draw.

MLA thanks for the input i was going to use 125 across the board

here are two more amps
 Xi2500.1 Xi1500.1 into 1 ohm 2500W x 1 1500W x 1 Reccomended Fuse Size 200A 100A Power / Ground Wire Size 1/0 Gauge 4 Gauge

I thought that Rockstar looked familiar...

Would a single 1/0 gauge input be enough for four 4 gauge outputs? Thinking about adding a fourth amp in the future.

Yes it can, but it would depend on the collective potential load of your 4 amps and the total length of the 1/0 cable.

If your running the harpoon at 2ohm would it increase the fuse rating from 80 to 160?

No. The Harpoon has 2 40A fuses plugged into the end panel by the power terminals. This is based on its max potential current draw @ 2 ohm x 2.

cool so i can use a 250 resetable breaker from the battery to the block, then match each amp rating from there on out assuming the cables are properly rated..

great info thanks.

With 12" of 1/0, you're with a 250A breaker. I think you could go with a 200A if you are going to run the 1500.1 @ 2 ohm as opposed to 1 ohm.
