    Default Amp power/earth from boot

    Hi,
    On the left (N/S) of my boot inside a compartment there is power to lots of fuses, some high rated. Q, can I take the power/earth for an amp from any of these, not after HIFI quality sound.

    Cheers

    completely agree. If you add say 30amps load to a high amps wire, then you may overload the wire cuasing lots of heat, which may ,melt the insulation and then set fire to the car!

    For new high current circuits like an amp, run direct from the battery with a fuse at each end of the wire.
