    Hey this should be simple but I can't decide what's right... Whelen says that +12v has to be fused at 3 amps. If I'm syncing 4 strobes, can I put one 12A fuse between the battery and the splice, or does each module need its own fuse after the splice?

    the 3 amp is for each unit but you can tie all the power leads to a common fuse.

    No, i dont think you can. Say one strobe burns out, now you have a circuit the has the capacity to run 12 amps but should blow at 9. Make sense? You could run 12 amps to 4 spliced 3 amps.

    First off, its LED, it most likely will never burn out. Secondly, the fuse isn't so much for overload, its for short circuiting. Feed all of them together with a 10A and you'll be fine.
