hard wired is the way to go for sure and its not a problem at all as long as you know what you are doing.

Sorry i know this topic is a bit old but it seems relevant to my question. When adding an add a fuse with 10A max I've read that you plug it into a preexisting 10A fuse location then add 2 10A fuses to the add a fuse. My question is wouldn't that create up to 20A running through the stock wire (before it reaches the add a fuse)that is only supposed to be for 10A?

If the fuses are in series, no. It's still just 10 amps. If the two fuses were wired in parallel, it would take 20 amps to blow them.

Exclamation Fuse Size for Direct Wire

What is the correct Fuse Size for the Escort Max?
10A seems too high.

Hi guys,
I'm very new to this forum but I had a question regarding a hardwire install on my vehicle using the add-a-fuse system.
I have the 9500ix, the SmartCord, a rear view mirror mount and I recently bought the BP-HHH add-a-fuse and a pack of (2) 15A fuses. I was planning on using the add-a-fuse in the ACC/AUX fuse spot but from what I've read on here I should be using two 10A fuses in the BP-HHH instead of the 15A that I got, is that correct? I just want to make sure I use the right fuses and in the fight fuse spot so I don't short something or screw it up somehow.
