That seems low.


There's a ~500ma allowance on the remote out, but the unit itself has to consume something. Maybe a 5-10A inline would be a good safe bet. The manual is inconclusive, I sped-read it. It said the unit has less than ~480mA current draw but that seems too low for a device pushing up to 6V of power per channel.

A 1 or 2 amp fuse will be just fine.
