    Sony "Tech Support" example...sad at best.

    Rant, for your entertainment.

    SONY Tech Support for CDX-M10 Marine Stereo:

    Hi, Ive fused the yellow power wire with a small fuse (0.5A) and it has blown in service three times. I thought that this was odd. This line is, as I understand it, only for power for the memory of the unit. The switched power (red) line, I assumed, provided the bulk of the current. In any case, the yellow line fuse blows when I play music loud. WHAT IS THE MAX CURRENT IN EACH OF THESE TWO POWER LINES?
