    whatever fuse the inverter calls for but you will need a fairly large one for that xbox they are power hungry.

    I have a 1996 Concorde LX and I want to put my Xbox and the Xenarc 700V in the car for a mobile media center. The xbox has an AC-DC PSU wired in already, and I do not feel like ripping it apart, so I plan on using an inverter to power it. The Xenarc has an AC adapter and the cigarette lighter adapter... So I may buy an inverter with two power outlets, and just plug the screen and xbox into it, although that would be inefficient. But my question is, would the xbox and screen pull too much current? What type of fuse would i need to install to make sure my car/xbox/screen don't catch fire?

    Thanks in advance!
    Is the XBOX power supply inside of it or is it in a power adaptor outside of the unit? If it takes DC input you could put properly conditioned DC into it and that would be more efficient that your inverter. Same goes for the screen. I have a sweet 600watt inverter that i haven't been able to use because everything runs on DC.

    maybe i should install that refrigerator i always wanted.....

    It all depends again on the size of the inverter I think that the lighter sockets are usually fused at 15 but I could be wrong if the inverter calls for more than that you are gonna have to up the guage on the wire and install a bigger fuse
