    Ready to go???

    I've done a lot of searching and I think that this is the set up that I want to go with

    150 watt opus (shuttle version)

    Shuttle ss51G
    2.4 p4
    512 mb ram
    40 gig 3.5"

    Clarion ProAudio DXZ535 (for aux in)

    Streets and Atlas 2004 and gps

    7" VGA touchscreen xenarc

    protector switch from Here

    would wiring from the battery to the opus require a fuse inbetween? if so what would the rating have to be and how should it be done? also putting the switched power through the protected switch would i be able to controll when the computer comes on when the car is running (incase i dont need/want the computer on)??

    Any suggestions from anyone? any and everything is good!

    Any time you run a wire from the battery it's a good idea to fuse it within 12" of the battery fo safety.. A 30amp inline fuse (found at most car audio places) should work fine..

    As for are you ready to go.. Looks done to me besides picking you software (or writing your own) and maybe a CD-Rom or DVD-Rom.. Good luck..

    If you are going to go with a 30amp fuse you better go with a heavy guage wire too, otherwise your wire will melt before the fuse goes off.

    1) Buy a battery kit. It will make wiring easy.
    2) Put a switch for the ACC input wire. That will keep Opus from starting up the system when you don't need it to.

    What kind of flow will a 30 amp fuse allow, i already have some pretty heavy wire running into the car to run a 300 watt inverter.. It would be easy to put the fuse close to the battery on that wire, but i would prefer not to run more wire if i dont have to....

    thanks again

    Can anyone link to what i should buy in terms of a fuse that would be easy to set up/replace if it were to ever burn out??

    thanks again

    I have read a few posts that suggest a 30 amp fuse should be used with the Opus 150.

    Why is this suggested if the Opus itself only has a 15 amp fuse ?
