in that case they are using the D block to go down in gauge in order to fit the amp properly..

you fuse the power so that if there is a short the fuse blows and your car doesnt burn down. If the ground touches metal it doesnt matter because well if your ground isnt touching metal then you arent grounded. there ius no reason to fuse a ground.
