yeah, i linked to it earlier in the thread. you replace the alternator fuse in the main fuse box (under the hood by the shock tower) with a resistor or capacitor of a particular value. the resistor/cap blows out just like a fuse in case of too much current, so it's safe. you can call it a bandaid if you'd like, but it works long term!
also, how hard are you pushing your system? i've also noticed that even with small amps, if you max them out, they draw a lot of current. it's been a while since i've been into car stereo systems, but once you push amps past their rated operating conditions, their draw is all over the place.
