Oh, if that advice had been given I guess I missed it. I'm confused how that would work though. Would it be a slow-blow fuse or something? Every time the car starts the penthouse will come on for a few seconds before the relay does. I would imagine that a fuse would blow during that time, would it not?
I added a 5 amp fuse before the resistor so if a short happened in the amp with the relay opened the resistor would not burn up. I also used the power after the 5 amp fuse but before the resistor to power my lci2 so that if the fuse blows it is obvious as the subwoofer would not work. I would rather that then not knowing the resistor was out of the loop and possibly ending up with the dreaded cannot maintain power error.
