In-line fuse, otherwise any type of store that sells the radios and speakers would work for you, its all in how much $ you want to pay. I just got a basic pkg from FF 4 years ago.

The in-line fuse and the fuse in the radio just blows instantly when hook up directly to the battery! I have tried a few different radios and the same result!

Check all of the power wires to make sure that there isn't any place where bare wire is touching the boat. Most boat shorts that I experience are because a wire gets pinched somewhere, the insulation is nicked, and bare wire is touching the boat causing a short.
