the HU came with a harness w/ a 20amp inline fuse on the constant power wire on the harness....which woulda been like... 6 inches to 1 foot from the HU itself... but i bought another wiring harness, and used that one instead... pulled the constant power wire, soldered it to some 8 gauge power wire... and ran it to the battery...V-Drive Hybrid Amplifier: A V-Drive MOSFET power unit is used to boost the incoming voltage from 14.4 volts (approx.) to 17.2 volts. The increased voltage allows the unit to deliver peak output of 60 watts x 4 channels. While providing high power output, this unit can draw a substantial amount of current, so the constant power wire must be connected directly to the positive terminal of the battery in your vehicle.
there should be no problem in having a breaker under the dash. Besides... the actual breaker is probably more secure than a power distribution box... I ain't worriedJimbo said:thats a bad spot dude
if it shorts someplace, your bird's feathers will be beyond singed
the reason for the fuse is fire protection
