    I use a 120 amp circuit breaker. You could use one, too (maybe 150 amp), since you'll probably be blowing out the 100 amp fuse.

    As an aside, if your amplifier only has 120 amps worth of fuses, I don't think it can output 2200 watts rms. It's probably more like 1200-1300 watts rms.

    EDIT: It may also be worthwhile to get rid of that cap, since they don't really do much anyways. If you haven't done the "Big 3" that would be a great idea, too.

    This ANL fuse block is rated for 35A to 300A.

    This ANL fuse block is rated for 35A to 750A.

    This Class T fuse block is rated up to 400A and is designed for high-speed electronic component protection.

    There are ANL fuses available from 40A to 500A and Class T fuses available from 250A to 400A on that web site. They also offer high-current panel mounted circuit breakers.
