    Post Arise PS -> car stereo?

    I'm looking for the easiest way to hook this power supply up to my car's power... I'd also like to do it without a switch (having it automatically come on/off when I turn my car on/off)... But I'd like to avoid messing with the ignition at all (as I know nothing about that). Someone suggested looking into hooking it up to my car stereo's switch power line... Would that work? Does the car stereo's switched power line give off near enough power to power the Arise 865 DC-DC?

    Depends on the car...

    I'm running my whole set up off of the ACC line

    I'm going to have to move to a relay when I add some more stuff

    Aaron, are you ever on IRC at all? You've got basically the same setup I do, and I need a lot of help figuring out how to hook this DC-DC power supply up to my car without blowing it up.

    i dont know jack squat about car electronics but i managed to hook up my amplifiers....my amps come on as soon as my car radio antenna goes up, connected by a remote wire ...... they are hooked right to the antenna. of course u need ground and 12Vs.

    u can hook it up to your ignition as well...it is not actually hooking it up to the ignition it self.......i think u hook it up to the fuse box.

    I don't have time to linger on IRC. What do you need to know?
