Hi - can I power a DSP.3 from the fuse box? If so, is a 10 amp fuse good? Or do I have to use a distribution block?

Thanks!

10 amps is more then you need. I would power it from a fused power block. Get the fuse as close to it , but if you run a line from the front of your car you should place a fuse up there as well

Interesting, what about the remote in, If you are factory head unit user the fuse panel is probably the most popular place to get switched power. Aftermarket head unit guys have it easier

Yeah, I'm using the factory head unit, even though it sucks.


I am too - except mine is a Ford oem unit, so I was able to reprogam its output for full range with no eq/delay/etc.

The problem i had was that the oem doesn’t have a remote turn on output that works. The Helix dsp.3 doesn’t need one though; in the absence of a remote turn on, if the pre-amp inputs get a signal, the dsp.3 will turn on the remote out and the system works flawlessly.
