    i just got a set of hella 700ff's to go with the set of hella 700ff's i already had installed and wired and working on my tacoma, what do i need to do to ensure that when i wire in the new set to the old set, that i will not blow a fuse, relay or switch...

    do i just wire in the power to my existing power wire? i plan on running everything to just one switch...

    the relay that comes with is 40Amps, will that be enough for both sets?

    the stock fuse as well?


    thanks all

    Four lights at 55W (I think 700's are 55W, no?) = 220W
    Current drawn from 220W at 12V is 18.4 Amps (220W/12V = ~18.4A).

    Sounds like you should be set :D
