Default Fuse box question: switched and unswitched?

I recently added some audio equipment and tapped into the fuse box for power (using Littlefuse Add-A-Circuit). I'd like all the devices (4 in all) to be connected to switched power. To make it more interesting the 4 devices need to be somewhat spaced out because one add-a-circuit device when used covers the fuses above and below.

Does anyone have documentation on which are switched and which are unswitched? All the manual shows is the fuse # and what it's used for. Most I can guess on (i.e. I know the heated steering wheel is switched) but others I'm unsure of. I'd rather not plug into all 44 and find out by trial and error.

Thanks for helping!

Default Forget the fusebox... use the power taps under your dash...

the yellow "75X" is what you want. Just be sure to have the proper fuses in line to your equipment, which you probably already have.

Even better but be careful to disconnect the power from the battery before you remove these cables as a short would not be a pretty picture!

Also have your radio codes handy ;-)
