    I was wondering if anybody has used the 12volt system in a roadster for an accessory add on. If so, where did you gain access? How many times did you blow a fuse? Any information would be greatly appreciated

    I had my subwoofer amp powered from the 12V accessory outlet. Just make sure you don't go over 125 W ;)

    Thanks for the information.
    Did you wire into the plug or just plug in to the socket?
    125W is the limit before popping the fuse?

    I wired into the plug - the manual says 125W is the limit (page 7-6) but it's got a 15A fuse so it'll blow after 180W.
