Default Best position for output relay

[intro]
Long time ago i ever had maverick d1 dac with relay but sold it, my order for DCB1 pcb is on the way and it has relay.

my aragon2004 has relay,completed gainclone my_rev with relay, waiting for aleph-j to be shipped and relay is compulsory.

[hypothesis]
My understanding is that relay is used to protect loudspeaker, hence it should be placed before loudspeaker / after power amplifier.

[question]
is it wise to bypass any relay before power amplifier? such as after dac/buffer/pre-amp

[option]
is this relay good enough for aleph-j instead of popular G5L?

I wouldn't bother to bypass relays in signal source equipment - many of them
simply short the output to ground anyway.

A 50 amp relay will probably be more than adequate.
