Wires provide the means between the system and the car fuse box. It is highly recommended that you use an amperage that is higher than the needs of the accessories you’re going to plug into. The issue here is that, if the wires cover maybe the same or less amperage, they can pull more electrical current causing overheating in the wires. If the accessories pull more power, try to connect them to the battery right into the positive terminal avoiding the fuse box.
It’s not uncommon to see people wire radios to the fuse box by inserting the power wire directly into a fuse slot and then inserting a fuse on top of it. Although this may work, it is also dangerous and could damage your new radio or create a potential fire hazard. You should also avoid using a fuse with a higher amperage rating than that specified for your new radio or stereo. While the radio will still work, you defeat the purpose of the fuse by using one with a higher amp rating. A fuse amp rating indicates how much current, in amperes, the circuit can withstand before the fuse blows. If you use a fuse with too high a rating, it may not blow or fail in time to prevent damage to your radio. For instance, using a fuse rated at 25 amps with a 15-amp car radio may allow too much current to pass through the circuit and cause irreparable damage to the stereo.
