    I would wire it like an amp, remote turn on, only on when the head unit is on. That makes sense to me....

    The equalizer has a ground, power, and remote just like an amp. Im just not sure whether to connect the power directly to the battery, or to the fuse box or something and how would I do that?

    If you're mounting it in the dash, I'd most likely tap into the h/u power - but it depends upon whether you're using just h/u pre-outs, or using the internal h/u amp.

    It's not much of a current draw ...

    When I wire it up, I am going to wire the speakers to the equalizer, and the head unit to the equalizer using rca cables. Yes, I would like to put it right under the head unit. So would it be cool to just splice the headunit and equalizer wires together like the power and ground or just the power or what?

    Just wire it together...HU and EQ to the vehicle hot and ground and use the hu turn off with the EQ. The amp hot would go directly to the battery with the remote turn off to the HU.
