    I have a 1996 S6 with a 2 year old sony head unit and CD player. I want to upgrade with an amp and replace the existing 4 speakers, Nothing to special just better sound quality. The amp i am looking at is a sony and has the following power outputs.

    4-Channel Class AB Car Amplifier
    RMS Power Rating: 4 ohms: 55 watts x 4 chan.

    Sony claim the following fuse ratings.
    Current drain (@ Rated Power - 4Ω): 30Amps
    Fuse Rating: 25Amps x 2

    I want to find out the best way to wire the power to this AMP. Do i find a spare fuse in the fuse board and run it from that or should I run a direct feed off the battery with an in-line fuse.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    You need to run the power direct from the battery
