    3sixty.3 remote question.

    I called fosgate to ask them about the amps running up the remote line and they said dont worry about it because the 360 will only draw what it needs. This doesnt make too much sense to me because that is pretty much any device will only draw what is needed, but we still fuse them. The point is to protect it and what is the minimum and breaking point as far as the amps needed. I tapped into a line off my factory amp the manual calls the line "acc power supply battery voltage" (looks like 20 awg) NOT "battery power supply". My main fear is thinking the remote line doesnt it just receive what is sent to it rather than actually draw the power? And if the amp is drawing x amount of power, and that iz what i am tapping wont it mess up the 360 if it is too much? What is the maximum number of amps that can be running through the remote line? do I need to put a fuse on the remote line? Am I over thinking this as fosgate seemed to tell me?

    Thanks.

    That line "acc power supply battery voltage"should already have protection, so no need to worry about that, the360.3 will only draw what it needs so again don't worry.

    the 3sixty will draw less than an amp

    probably like 30mA
