What is the power draw of the C-DSP 6x8 and what size fuse should I use for it in my car’s 12Volt electrical system? Thank you

It's low power. 2A fuse will be enough.

My meter on a 12V1.5A wall wart reads out 10W while it's active.
Assuming 85% converter efficiency on 1/2 load, ~8W actual draw or so.
