You can if the rem(ote) wire is large enough to carry the load.


and how big would that have to be? could i use speaker wire?


You would have to see how many amps the new deck draws. It should be in the instruction booklet. They should also tell you the size fuse and the size wire to use.


it just says the voltage (12v) and ots a 10a fuse. it looks like an 18 guage wire. i have 16g speaker wire right now. would that work for the power n ground wires?


That would work for the power wire You can twist the two speaker wires together and double the capacity. . You don't need a long wire for ground. Run a short piece of wire to a screw in the metal body. Put it under a washer and use some dielectric grease or vasoline to keep it from corroding.
