I agree with this web site:

http://www.bcae1.com/cirbrakr.htm

Quote:
In my opinion, circuit breakers should never be used to protect electronic devices such as radios, amplifiers or crossovers.


Further down on that page it also talks about reliability. Not worth the risk.
I've heard stories of where the circuit breaker welded itself shut over time. When it comes time to protect the circuit...the wire itself becomes the fuse. Not much left of the car after something like that happens.

On the firewall (passenger side)
Pros: You can use short wires and patch cords. You won't have to remove a seat or climb into the trunk.
Cons: Only very small amps fit here. This puts your amp close to some common noise sources.
In the trunk or hatch area
Pros: Plenty of room for large amps. Near the rear speakers. Easy access to the amp controls.
Cons: You sacrifice some cargo space. Longer wires and patch cords are required.
Under a seat
Pros: Closer to the receiver, so you can use shorter patch cables and signal cables, which are less prone to noise and signal degradation. Closer to the front speakers, so running wire to them will be easier. No cargo space sacrificed.
Cons: You may have to remove the seat to do the installation. Warning: removing your seat could deactivate your vehicle's SRS (airbag) system. Only small amps will fit. The amp will need to be protected against water from rain or snow brought in on shoes.
