Loud Audio Blowing Accessory Fuse (Remote Wire)
Quick overview of my setup:
Sony 600w 4 channel amp hooked via 8 gauge wire
Remote wire hooked up to the accessory line of the radio harness
Netbook feeds audio signal to amp via usb 7.1 soundcard
MiniTouch 700 powered off of same accessory line as the remote wire
After lots of tuning and testing today, I opened and Centrafuse and it started to play some music rather loud (likely at max volume). After a half second or so the monitor and audio cut out. Clearly it was a fuse. What doesn't make sense is why the fuse that the remote wire is on would trip. Is there some other way I should be connecting the remote wire to switched 12v? I highly doubt it has anything to do with the monitor having too high of a draw. The only new pieces I've had in the past month are an usb obd2 scanner and the laptop auto-start circuit that can be found on the boards here. I went over the system several times on the bench before moving it to the car with the amp, and didn't find any shorts and had no issue running the monitor and auto-start circuit off of one 12v molex connection. With that in mind, I can only look at the remote line as being the culprit. Suggestions for correction?
