Adding Fuses, adding heavier gauge
My MD player gets bucky and sucks too much power, as when I turn it half way up and it'* display "dims" when it hits hard. So, I figure it'* the small (14/16 guage?) wire that the previous stock radio used.
I'm considering adding a fuse and putting it on its own circuit, with 10 guage to be safe. I sorta wanted to add this circuit to the fuses under the IP, but realized that if I run the player loud, it could draw over 5 amps continuously, and I'm not sure if the power feed is enough, without drawing from other circuits that were already provisioned a certain amount of power (designated by wire diameter). So, under the hood is the next place that would make sense, in the Maxifuse block.
Question: Has anyone taken it apart? How hard would it be to add a circuit? I'd like to do this a little more professional and low profile than just adding an inline fuse and another wire from the battery.

Yup, that'* ISU
