120A for the 1200.1 or a 60A fuse for the 600.1. dont get a 180 A breaker. a 60 A fuse shouldn't blow from a 300 watt amp. your friend must have a short or a bad amp.
how many times do i hae to say wattage doesnt mean shit when it comes to your fuse size every amp gives u a differnt rating,if one of his amps uses 3 40 amp fuses thats 120 amps from 1 amp so yes a 60 amp fuse will blow right there and if the other amp 2 30 amp fuses thats 60 amps so 120 amps plus 60 amps = 180 amps so if u dont think a 60 amp fuse will blow put one in and turn up the system and watch it blow
