When you were playing and blowing fuses, I assume this was with the head unit connected? You may have blown the amp curcuit in the head unit.

Dude I advise you hook the +12v lead to the battery instead of the power sources within the car. They are all probably fused at a much lower rating than your CD player is going to draw.

HAHa I did that to my EA putting in the CD Changer. Drilled a hole straight through the central locking loom. Ah well we all live and learn.
