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.
