Audio amp odd wiring...


I was changing out a cord on my amp with a new one and looked at the wiring. The neutral was fused and switched, not the hot. Why would this be?

I did not change anything, kept the neutral fused and switched.

Load is just a regular toroidal x-former.

Did you do a continuity check on the old power cord from the wire end to the blade on the male end?
I've seen some where the colors are not what you would expect, I think they use some international,
not US color standard.

No, the plug was polarized. It probably doesn't matter much, but I might fuse the hot and switch it. Thats how its always done.
