+1, want to watch out for too much noise or draw from these as they are also notorious for melting the fusebox when they pull too much current, esp if the connection at the fuse is iffy. 35A is too much; I have wondered about putting in a 25A fuse because it melts the box before the fuse blows. The alt is 55A; think about using all of that fuse's capacity, it's well over half the total alternator output....
