adding a stereo?

Post by coalnation on Sat Apr 06, 2013 8:00 am

So my van was not equipped with a factory stereo and that's something I can't go without. I bought some mountable speakers, a head unit, and an under dash case for the stereo. What is the best way to go about connecting the stereo to the battery? Should I go directly to the fuse box? Any help is greatly appreciated!

What i did was added my own fuse box so no matter what i added i did not disturb any existing wiring and not even have to mess with the existing fuse box. some thing like the link below. http://www.boatersland.com/scp12501.html?gclid=CLrFzefHtrYCFYF9OgodqR8AlA

so did you hook up your stereo? I need tunes too, man! But I don't really want to mess with my fuse box at all. The link that was posted below, does that box run straight from the stereo to the battery and you just turn off that port when out of the car so as not to drain your battery?
