  • Some power connection questions


    I have most of my pc built and I am getting close to install! I just have a few questions on how I should wire this whole unit!

    I plan on using a 6 or 12 circuit marine fuse block. I plan on putting an ignition relay on this unit so I don't have items draining the battery. My pc, HD Radio, sound processor, and maybe even neons will be powered from one of the circuits.
    ...Do you think this Blue Sea fuse block will be a good fit for a carPC? I can run an 8ga wire from the battery to the postive pole and also ground out the negative pole for extra protection.

    My next question is about making the PC removable.
    What is the best power connection for this? Will a simple molex connector work for this, or should I go for an Anderson Power Pole?

    Not so important, but I plan on making a switch plate for my middle console. Would a molex be the best type of connector for amp & pc cargo switch, and other misc switches?
    Over a year later I guess it's true...a carPC is NEVER complete
