The manu. specs the fuse size to protect the circuit. They usually design the circuits with a safety margin but doubling the size of the fuse is a bad idea. If it doesn't work after the 40 something is fried in there. On another note if an amp is blowing the speced fuse either it's already NFG or wired wrong.
