A fuse caution

Hi doc,

Some months ago I discovered the first owner had installed the wrong value fuses in a pair of monoblocs I had. However after buying the correct value at a trusted electronics parts store two of those blew upon turn-on. After driving up to Chino for a factory check out/repair we discovered the fuses were apparently mis-labeled. I'd never seen that before but installation of factory supplied fuses worked without a problem.

The brand was NTE Electronics and the store took them back, but they had not had reported any similar problem. Point is strange things can happen even with anything as simple as a fuse.

Good luck.
