I was told by crutchfield that using a fuse tap for my car amplifier to my fuse box is dangerous to my car's electrical system is this true? They didn't specify with the remote turn on wire but obviously that's what they're talking about... where else would I connect my remote turn on wire, if not the fuse box?

I suspect that Crutchfield was talking about the amplifier's 'power' wire, and not the remote turn on wire. Most amplifiers today do not use a remote turn on wire, as they have current sensors on the input circuits that measure when the head unit is turned on and is sending a music signal to the power amp through the inputs. Thus, a remote turn on wire in not needed.
