I am wanting to run my 3 amp and my capacitors through my stand alone fuse block and oversize knu ofc cables on everything(I have already bought everything).
I don't want any grounding issues and would like to know what I shouldn't do as I lay out my wiring.

Tongue in cheek reply: I have no idea what you are talking about in your post. Since this forum is primarily dealing with how to prepare scrap electronics to sell to Boardsort, all I could say is cut the connector ends if gold pinned and sell to Boardsort for $1 per pound, and the wiring for 65 cents per pound. We do have a few members who may be able to give you a lucid answer, but 95 percent of us are devoted to destroying electronics for their scrap components, not building systems.

Keep both feet firmly planted on the ground to avoid grounding issues. :)

Don't forget the flux capacitor and make sure it's topped off with depleted uranium. You have to get the MPH just right when the lightning strikes if you want ANY kind of time travel....otherwise you'll just melt your DeLorean.

I take it the OP is actually looking for an answer. They took the time to in-link an actual data sheet.

But for the life of me I can’t begin to guess what they are trying to make!

The fastest way to incorrectly solve ground outs is a large capacitor and a high yield resistor. Then dissipate the free current across a large open air metal block.
That’s what CBM and Atari did in the 70s.
The FCC will come knock on your door late one night over it but it does work.

Honestly the best option is to simply run an 8-12 gage line out to the power supply cable’s ground pin.

If you’re using battery power the alternative is a series of post feed capacitors that will drain down the output. You can use a resister farm to convert to heat but that creates a new world of problems.
So ideally you just build a case or mount with little or no transfer capability so you don’t inadvertently ground the system.


If you’re worried about yourself turning into a nifty capacitor. Use a grounding harness, thick rubber shoes. Rubber mats, and rubber coated work bench. Etc. Basically turn your workshop into a mobile platform like the power company does. Lol.

Seriously, what are you trying to do that grounding is in the equation in the first place! ;)

I googled "knu ofc cables" and they seem to be car stereo speaker cables.
