Default Inline fuse keeps overheating

I have some 10in subs with a mono channel 800watts piooner amp. My inline fuse keeps overheating causing my system to go off. Fuse is not blown tho, its just super hot and i dont know why. I did the formula for the fuse amperage but still keeps shuting off. 800x12v=66.66666

Ps. If i change the fuse system is turns back on so i know its not my amp overheating. If i dont use the inline fuse box amd wire it straight up it wont turn off.

What do you think dso friends?

The gauge wire was already there when i got the car so i guess the previous owner had a system. I do not know if he had this problem tho. I bought the inline fuse. Ima have to change that wire then

Pretty thin meaning? If its less than 4ga wire, 65 amps is too much current. You should not be running anything over 50 amps of current through 8 gauge wire. I also don't mean the total wire thickness including the shielding or covering. Many companies these days lie their asses off about wire size. Like a walmart amp kit. It might say 4ga wire but its all plastic with nothing more than a small 6ga or 8ga of actual wire in it.

The best bang for your buck wire to use is welding lead cable. It's pure copper and runs a bit on the thick side of actual gauge size and most have a very high strand count (stand count is key with dc power). Don't worry about it not being "oxygen free" it will work just fine. As long as you keep the ends clean and seal up any exposed connections it works awesome for the money.
