Wiring amp to battery or blue sea fuse box question
 
Hi, I am running a house battery system that feeds a blue sea fuse panel. The directions for my amp recommendation wiring directly to the battery. I prefer it to be wired to the fuse box so I can shut it off with my battery switch in storage. The amp only needs a 15a fuse. The stereo is wired to the fuse box and there isnít any interference or radio noise.
What do you guys recommend??
Thanks for any help!

Well, its only a 15a fused draw at worst. Most amps that can be 100A fused sources I definitely would likely goto directly to a battery (through a fuse and shutoff).

As far as noise, most modern amped head-units are quite good at keeping noise out. Following the installation instructions would be key.

You might want to list exactly who/what stereo your working with. There is a fountain of info here.

15amp fuse is like a bilge pump. No much for an amp. I think wiring it into the input of the panel would be ok if your not overloaded right now. Should be an 6/8ga line in. Just make sure to ground well and that all grounds are together to limit the noise.

Mine goes through my BlueSea, just make sure the wires are large enough for the loads.
