It's a MINI add a fuse, make sure to get the mini. It should come with a few fuses. I don't believe it requires much amperage.

Yeah, I had to fiddle with my amp controls to sort out what sound I liked the best. I used a LOC and the OEM headunit.

I would prefer to install a head unit, and replace all factory speakers (with amp), and mount two more speakers in the trunk/back seat compartment (with amp)... sooner, or later.

I installed some aftermarket eclipse speakers my friend gave me....they have pretty good highs, but totaly lost te bass that even the stock speakers provided...today i finaly installed a kenwood 800w amp with an MTX 12in sub that helped that out....LOC or not, sounds pretty good!

I just grabbed one at Canadian Tire for about $25. I believe you can get one at any Future Shop, Best Buy, or just about anywhere that carries a variety of car audio.
