    blue cold cathodes...

    bought some cold cathodes off ebayer for my footwells...just wondering, where do i wire the positive and earth to?

    I already have my tft screen running off the same power as my head unit, is it a bad idea to add the cathodes on this supply aswell??

    dont wanna have to plug into the ciggy lighter...looks tacky imo with a wire hanging out

    stereo feed...like i said, is it not asking too much to be drawing stereo, tft, and 2 12" cathodes from one power wire?
