So, I'm going to feel stupid asking this... I have a Rockford DSR-1 DSP that requires a source for remote turn on AND a source for constant 12v. I didn't realize this until I buttoned up everything (that it needed a constant 12v source).
My dad had the bright (or, maybe NOT so bright) idea of just running a wire off the amp's power to it... So in other words, I have a small gauge cable plugged into the power input for my amplifier next to my big 4 ga wire coming directly from the battery, then run to my DSR1.
I have a feeling I'll be laughed at for this one, or told that my car is a firebomb waiting to happen. It powers it fine, no issues... Was planning on throwing a fuse on that line just to be safe. So, am I an idiot for doing this, or will it be ok so long as I fuse it w/ a low amp fuse?
Thanks - sorry for the dumb question.
