wiring question...

Ok, I'm having a brain fart here. I'm hooking up a sirius tuner and an HD Radio tuner. Both boxes require a power source, so instead of splicing into the radio harness, I was thinking of adding an add-a-circuit into the fuse box at a switched power location...maybe an empty unused one if I can find one. Could I run them both off of the same add-a-circuit or would it be better to seperate them and put in two add-a-circuits?

I should know the answer to this

you can run them both off the same circuit, just make sure you put a fuse in there that is about 10% higher than normal amp draw....

Fuse's are your friend. :) Thanks for the help lifted.

BTW, those wheels look killer. I like those alot. I haven't been on in awhile and I don;t think I saw them. Good choice.

switched power......that way they wont have power going to them when the truck is powered off.......but power will still go to them in the ACC position...
