The thinnest marine wire would work fine as would a 3 amp fuse. There is almost no current on that wire.

16 gauge will work fine and a 5-15 A fuse is just there for fire prevention, not to protect the equipment.

I have the opposite problem. After a hard reset my deck turns my cockpit speakers OFF :)
But only when streaming bluetooth audio, which is all I really do. It's like 5 layers into the menu and a PITA to set up each time.
15 amp fuse is what I have been reading people use on this wire, would that be correct? I'll be hooking it up directly to the battery.
I can't recall now whether it's 14ga or 16ga wire.

I have an external rocker switch that disconnects the cockpit speakers.

I wired it to the main panel on the input side of the main DC breaker.  It only is shut off when I turn the big ON/OFF switch (A/B/All for some folks.)   That seemed like a good compromise to me.  Depending on how fancy your stereo is, it can be a PITA to go through the setup constantly.  For me, I use the fader to control volume in the main cabin vs. cockpit.  That's important.  A few times I have forgotten about that, and after doing something electrical have been inside rockin' out to music or watching a movie without realizing that my cockpit speakers are sharing my experience with anyone nearby.  That's rude, and embarrassing. For that reason I deliberately change the default display color to 'red' so that if I see the default 'blue' color I know to check the setup.

How many of you keep the yellow (constant 12V) hooked up to the battery at
all times?
