Both of these companies pretty much insist that the controller needs to be hard wired to the battery. I'm wondering why. 12vDC to the controller is 12vDC to the controller as long as the wiring is heavy enough. I have a Fuzeblock that's getting power via 10ga wires. I'm thinking there's no reason I can't cut the wires to fit and route directly to my Fuzeblock. Yes, I'm aware that it voids the warranty. The only possible reason I can think of is that the length of the wires have some impact on impedence or voltage drop but this ain't no space shuttle we're talkin' about. Anyone know for sure what the reason is?
