The radio is the ideal fuse site to tap into. This is because when you turn the key in the ignition, it regulates the power. As a result, if you remove the key, the car amplifier will also switch off. As an enthusiast, I’ve found this feature very useful.

You can connect a remote wire for an amp to the fuse box by going through the following steps.
Step 1: Get the Right Size Wire
The first step is to get the right size wire for performing the action. The ideal wire gauge to use here is 18 gauge wire, which will carry enough electricity.
Step 2: Key off the Ignition
When working on the vehicle, turn off the ignition to turn off all power to the car’s electrical systems and prevent anything from going wrong.
Step 3: Remove the Radio Fuse
The next step is pulling the radio fuse from the fuse box. Because every vehicle is different, you’ll need to check your owner’s manual or the user handbook to find the fuse box in yours.
Step 4: Extend the Remote Wire
Inspect the space between your existing RCA cable and your new one. You should be able to detect a small remote wire in between if you look carefully. You can just splice the wire together and extend it to the fuse’s location.
Step 5: Place the Fuse Back
The final step is placing the fuse back into its original position or inside the holder.
