KonFUSED 3 Way Fuse or Ground Distribution Block
The KonFUSED Distribution System is tailored by the installer to fit ANY installation requirement. With interchangeable Kompression Fittings anything is possible. The KNF-23 has two input ports, which by changing the Kompression Fittings, can accept 4 Gauge or 1/0 Gauge Cable . The two of the three ouputs can be adjusted to accept 4 Gauge or 8 Gauge cables while the last output can be configured for FUSED 1/0 or 4 gauge output . The KNF-23 has 18 Unique Konfiguratons. Please see our reference chart link below to see what fittings are included with this model. Using the Mini-ANL Style Fuse, the KNF-23 can maintain loads up to 150A per circuit.
Included with the KNF-23 are 8 Kompression Fittings to allow the end user to customize the block to fit their application. The fittings available with the KNF-23 are: two large 1/0 Gauge; two large 4 gauge; two small 4 gauge; two small 8 gauge. The large fittings are used on the input side and the middle output while the small fittings are used on the outside outputs of the KNF-23 Also included, your choice of three (3) Mini-ANL fuses! The KNF-23 is finished in black chrome and includes the smoke acrylic cover
To use the KNF-23 as a ground block, select "link" from each fuse drop down. Links are brass buss bars that act as direct links (non fused connections) turning the KNF-23 into a 5 port, multi 0 gauge connection point.
PLEASE NOTE - one KNF-23 can not be used for power AND ground distribution at the same time. Two separate KNF-23s would be required for this type of distribution system.
**Denotes additional fitting required for this configuration
Overview – KNF Series Fuse / Distribution Blocks use our compression fittings to secure the input and output cable connections. By changing the fitting type, the installer can select from 1/0 or 4 gauge input and 0, 4, or 8 gauge fused outputs on the KNF-23. The above fitting chart shows the KNF-23's available user configurations using the included fittings. Some configurations with the KNF-23 fuse block require the purchase of additional fittings (**noted). The KonFUSED distribution blocks all use Mini-ANL fuses which range from 30A to 150A. A clear black (smoke) protective cover is included with each block and is snapped into place.
Notes – The KNF-23 offers two input ports. However only one is required to be used in order to power all three fused outputs of the KNF-23 fuse block. This secondardy input port allows the installer to daisy chain additional fuse blocks together or connect a rear mounted battery to the rest of the system without adding extra connection points. The possibilities are endless with our KonFUSED distribution block system.

How do I determine what size fuses I need for this fuse block?
Each output of a fuse distribution block normally is connected to a single amplifier. Each amplifier will have either a fuse on board or the manufacture will state within the manual's installation guide or spec sheet what the max fuse rating or current draw of the amplifier is. If your amp has three 30A fuses on boards, you want a 100A fuse for that particular output of this block (90A is not an option we offer). If the second amp has a single 40A fuse, then a 40A fuse goes into that output of the block and thus a 100A and 40A would be required.
Do I need to use both inputs to use this fuse block?
No, only one of the input ports is required to fuse power all the fused outputs of the KNF-23 fuse distribution block. The second port is used to connect a second battery or daisy chain a second fuse block or other 12 volt accessory
What is a Link>
A Link is what KnuKonceptz calls a buss bar for its distribution blocks. It connect the input and output side directly, replacing the area a fuse would normally connect to. Links are used to convert our "fuse" blocks into "ground" blocks. A ground block is simply another term for an unfused distribution block.
