    Default Hardwiring HELP PLEASE =[

    Well, I'm about to buy some hardwiring parts, but I'm not sure what I need. I'd like to buy them all at once. Can you guys give me a list of what I need to buy.

    Dude, dont be lazy :roll: . Search the forum and you will find more than what you need to know. That being said you need to make some decisions before you can even make a list.

    1) Do you want smartcord functionality (remote mute button)
    2) Do you want to source power from the fusebox or tap a powerwire
    3) Do you have mini fuses or regular?

    No smartcord functionality, use the fusebox's power. And I'm not sure what kind of fuses?

    Mazda Miata 1993 if that helps any much.

    The best way to do it if you arent comfortable messing around w/ your car is to just drop 20 bucks at best buy and have them do it.

    You need a direct wire available at, ebay etc...(Used to be here but I cant find it ($10)

    an add a circuit (either mini or regular depending on what your miata has) available at any auto parts store ($5)

    an extra fuse mini or regular (again dependant on your car)
    Mini fuse is slighly wider than a quarter inch

    Save the money and do it yourself, takes 15 mins tops

    Yeah, it's pretty easy with the add-a-fuse. Don't jump ahead and buy an extra fuse though, my add-a-fuse came with several (in different amperages).

    Alright, thanks. Yeah I was planning on buying the materials then ask Best Buy to do it since I'm not sure on how/where to wire it to. Thanks for the list with pictures gobuckeyes.

    They're mostly found at auto-stores. As already said Advanced probably has them, as well as Pep Boys.
