HF / Tweeter Bulb Fuse.  [UPGRADE MORE PROTECTION].  This is a UPGRADE, MORE PROTECTION.  Please read.

HF / tweeters bulb / fuse upgrade protection.  Upgrade from RED DOT >>> BLUE DOT.  One [UPGRADE] Fuse / Lamp for speaker Crossovers, as fitted many speakers crossovers.

Simply, this offers more protection, especially for PA speakers and bands & people who play their speakers loud.  So many speakers / amplifiers etc, that have a fuse fitted, and looks like this, is a SK3 type (its has many names).  Also identified as a RED dot.  There is a lesser known similar looking fuse, but has a BLUE dot.

So simply … Most products use RED dot.  A few use BLUE dot.  Upgrade from RED to BLUE gives more protection.

RED DOT.

Approx. 12V @ 2A rating.  So 24 watt as a bulb. BUT as a fuse / protection device, in Negative Temp Coefficient form, That means as the current increases, the ohms increase = greater protection.  COLD TEMP (10 to 30 Degs C) = 0.5 ohms.  That means you have a 0.5 ohm resistor in series.  Under HOT temp conditions, its 6 ohms.  Given the HF / tweeters is 5 to 8 ohms typically, it adds a lot of safety resistance, as the power goes up.

BLUE DOT.

Approx. 12V @ 1A rating.  So 12 watt as a bulb.  BUT as a fuse / protection device, in Negative Temp Coefficient form.  That means as the current increases, the ohms increase = greater protection.  COLD TEMP (10 to 30 Degs C) = 1 ohms (twice the RED dot).  That means you have a 1 ohm resistor in series.  Under HOT temp conditions, its 12 ohms (twice the RED dot).

Given the HF / tweeters is 5 to 8 ohms typically, it adds a lot of safety resistance, as the power goes up.

To summarize …

RED DOT = 0.5 ohms cold = amp at low power.

RED DOT = 6 ohms hot = amp at high power. 

BLUE DOT = 1 ohms cold = amp at low power.

BLUE DOT = 12 ohms hot = amp at high power.
