I hardwired my V1 in one of my cars using a very nice and tested method specific for that car.
I've had a hardwire kit with mute button ready to go in my daily driver, but I have yet to install it because I am not sure what would be the best power source for it and have heard mixed recommendations.
The car is a 1994 Civic. The hardwire kit comes with a mini fuse and mute button.
My buddy (he installs car stereos) says "The best place would be at the fuse box if you have an unused switched hot there. Ground can be any good ground."
What would you guys recommend? The method I am comfortable doing is splicing and soldering the positive behind the cigarette lighter adapter and grounding on a good grounded bolt/screw behind the console, but if the fuse box source is better (either for quality of power or for added V1 safety) I would want to go that route. Problem is, I'm not sure about the best way to do it that way.
Please let me know your thoughts.
Thanks in advance,
